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"

Maya 2018 ART Initialization error

I've been trying for about a day to get The ART tools to work with Maya 2018 and I keep running into problems. My big issue is this fail to initialize at the moment.

So it looks like I just needed to delete the installation a few times and I also disabled the XGen plugin and that fixed my issue. Apparently XGen messes up a lot of things in Maya for a lot of people.

Oh wow you're a life saver! Thank god someone finally figured this out! I wish Epic would make their own Mixamo style UE4 skeleton generator... keep it in house and support the hell out of it. It'll only help the EULA income...
