Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Report: how i fixed installation of ART for Maya on Mac OS X.

I want to report about how i fix installation of ART for Maya on Mac OS X.

First. Please fix (or replace) pdf file with wrong instructions (actually it is instructions for windows version) Here: /Users/Shared/UnrealEngine/4.11/Engine/Extras/Maya_AnimationRiggingTools/ArtToolsOSX/MayaTools/Animation and Rigging Tools Installation.docx.pdf

Second. At that link https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Content/Tools/MayaRiggingTool/index.html instructions must be separated for Windows / OS X. Bcoz paths in step 1,2,4 is incorrect (maybe for windows it is correct but VERY different from mac's). On mac OS X maya has paths in 5 locations of "scripts" folders. Just for example in Maya 2016 version:

  • ~/Library/Preferences/Autodesk/maya/scripts

  • ~/Library/Preferences/Autodesk/maya/2016/scripts

  • /Users/Shared/Autodesk/maya/scripts

  • /Users/Shared/Autodesk/maya/2016/scripts

  • ~/Documents/maya/projects/default/scripts

Third. How i fixed installation, I had copy file /Users/Shared/UnrealEngine/4.11/Engine/Extras/Maya_AnimationRiggingTools/ArtToolsOSX/MayaTools/userSetup.py to ~/Library/Preferences/Autodesk/maya/2016/scripts and run Maya. In Maya with window ask location of "MayaTools"folder i pick /Users/Shared/UnrealEngine/4.11/Engine/Extras/Maya_AnimationRiggingTools/ArtToolsOSX/MayaTools (where py file)

That's all. But And PDF and that link has wrong information! and i spent 1 hour+ for search info for solving problem :/ Please fix it.

Product Version: UE 4.11

I tried installing ART for maya2018 on mac today I tried 2 different downloads : - from github - from UE4 install Both had the same UI bugs, making it unusable. For example, the timeline constantly flashed and changed duration, and the menus were not clickable. Ended up just re-rigging the mannequin in maya. If someone has a better up to date solution, please post it here.

Hi PirateTony,

I have entered the following request to add Mac OS specific instructions for the A.R.T. installation: [UEDOC-2952]. Thanks for sharing your solution for other users in the meantime.
