Blender 2.8 and Make Human Path Problem

Postby smutnut » Thu Apr 11, 2019 6:31 pm

Hope I put this in the correct place. Am new here.

Not a pro with either of these programs (Blender or MakeHuman), but having this path issue. I have Blender 2.8 on a "D" drive and that newest release of MakeHuman (Make Human Community maybe ?) on my "C" (start up drive) and I am getting path errors when importing with the MakeHuman (MHX2 Runtime) toolbar. There doesn't seem to be anywhere to manually correct the path the way you can with other scripts like the Daz importer. I can import into Blender 2.79 which is on my C drive, but am trying to retire that program.

Just curious if there is a good procedure for installing the new Blender beta and MakeHuman beta so they work together. I am assuming on the C drive, but do I need to do completely clean installs and if so how should I do that. Thanks.

A couple links to good install info for this type of setup is fine. Links to someone who fixed this type of problem would be even better.

Thanks so much in advance

I'm not sure about your problem. The MHX importer should work irregardless of the mhx2-file location. Could you provide the error message?

I'm trying to attach an image file. See if this works

Also there is this. You can see something is imported but there is nothing there

It is possible that something isn't matching between blender 2.8 and the mhx version for 2.8. Blender is still changing around quite a lot, and sometimes that breaks stuff.

I'm not sure I understand though. I don't see anything about a path in the error you are pasting. What path errors are we talking about?

Thanks for the look

I'm not really sure if it is a path problem myself. I am going by my limited knowledge of setting up a DAZ importer script which I always have to keep changing my runtime path for everytime I download a new version of Blender 2.8 usually because the main folder is named something differen't numerically.

Also, as mentioned I have Blender 2.8 on the D drive and these errors are referring to my C drive. I do have Blender 2.79 on my C drive but I was just learning it and am not as comfortable with it as 2.8 so I was trying to do most things on that unless it was a tutorial I needed 2.79 for.

I may try deleting Blender 2.8 completely and downloading a version to my C drive along with 2.79. Reason I didn't do it in the first place was because I didn't want conflicts and wasn't even sure I was going to begin using it for a long time. I would like to clean out all my scripts and what not for a fresh install, but think some of the stuff is connected to my C drive and 2.79 so don't want to foul up my entire system as I don't really know what I am doing.

Thanks again

Differing versions of blender on the same drive will not conflict they keep there configuration data in separate and appropriately named folders.

How does it (2.8) remember most of your add ons (even if it messes up some) when I drag the old extracted folder into the trash before replacing it with the new download update?

Maybe this procedure is even the problem

Thanks

Your error message makes me wonder if you're using the latest version of mhx2. It is not any kind of path problem.
