2.80 and MakeHuman 1.2 cant import

Postby sethjames9000 » Thu Apr 30, 2020 1:29 pm

Hi Guys any help here is much appreciated. I have decided to take another crack at using makehuman. I had used it about 8 years ago with blender...

I am on Blender 2.80. Today's version of MakeHuman 1.2.

I have installed the MHX2 plugins for both Blender and Makehuman. I can see it in Blenders addons and it is enabled. Also I can see it in MakeHuman's plugins and its enabled.

There is no import MHX2 option in the file - import menu within Blender 2.80.

In Blender on the sidebar in the makehuman tab when I click import human there is an error. it says cannot connect to makehuman app and then something about security settings. Its my understanding that all I have to do is open makehuman and Blender at the same time and it should work. Am I missing something?

I am guessing it has something to do with the "Connect to MH" tab withing the sidebar Blender Plugin. There is a host ID and a port??? If this is my issue how do I know what to set here? I have looked in MakeHuman nut I don't see anything about hosts or ports?? Please Help!

Get the latest version of Blender 2.82 and the latest version of MHX2, things should work fine...

I did try the latest Blender also...

Here is what fixed it. They dont tell you in the directions - you have to go into make human and click on the community tab. There is an option to accept connections. Check that box and then it will work.

I am using Eevee so cant go past 2.80. They ruined the shadows in the newer version. Bring back the per light softness! Please OK rant over.

Thanks Seth, that worked, I can't believe they didn't include this information though. I couldn't for the life of me figure out where to enable the server portion of Make Human.

thanks again
