I’d file this as a bug but I’m really new to mGear (and Maya) so there’s a good chance this is a user error.
I’ve been setting up my rig and following the Data Centric Rigging workshop videos. I’m trying to replicate the steps in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gz2zCcqgJdo (“Enviroment and first custom step”)and extract my skin pack.
When I select my geometries and select mGear → Skin and weights → Export skin pack (ASCII/Binary won’t make a difference), I get:
Error: RuntimeError: file C:\blaablaa\scripts\mgear\core\skin.py line 73: (kFailure): Unexpected Internal Failure #
Line 73 in the script is
fnSet = OpenMaya.MFnSet(skinCls.__apimfn__().deformerSet()). I could probably debug this a bit further myself but I feel like I’d have to maybe dive into some Maya internals which is a Pandora’s box I don’t quite want to open yet.
I also tried extracting a single geometry but the result is the same. I removed the ngSkinTools node from the geo, it only has the skin cluster listed in the inputs (envelope 1, skinning method classic linear, use components off, normalize weights interactive and deform user normals on).
I’m running Maya 2022 in “python 2” mode.
Happy to provide any other information needed. Loving mGear so far.
