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"

I'm getting this error in Maya-

// Error: file: D:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2019/scripts/others/pluginWin.mel line 289: The specified procedure could not be found. (MayaLiveLinkPlugin2018) // // Error: file: D:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2019/scripts/others/pluginWin.mel line 289: Unable to dynamically load : D:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2019/modules/LiveLink/plug-ins/MayaLiveLinkPlugin2018.mll The specified procedure could not be found.

the LiveLink directory is in the Maya modules directory, and the files are there. I tried putting them in the Maya plug-ins directory, and then they don't show up in the Maya plug in manager at all. Any idea?

Since the liveLink plugin is already in a module, I added a .mod file with this data so my Maya could see it:

 + MAYAVERSION:2019 LiveLink 1.0 externalMayaTools\LiveLink
 MAYA_PLUG_IN_PATH+:=plug-ins\2019

Clearly your paths on the first line will be different, but that works for me.

Ok, I don't mean to be dumb, but this is literally the first time I've ever opened Maya.

There is already the LiveLink.mod file in the modules directory, that has this line-

  • LiveLink 1.0 .\LiveLink

I don't have any 2019 folders in the Maya install, but maybe it's not obvious to me how Maya reads its directories?

I created a new LiveLink.mod file, only changing your externalMayaTools\Livelink to .\Livelink, but I get the same error.

Modules are a whole thing unto themselves, I'd encourage you to check out the docs on them for a better understanding of how they work: http://help.autodesk.com/view/MAYAUL/2019/ENU/?guid=__developer_Distributing_Maya_Plug_ins_Maya_module_paths_folders_and_html

Yeah, so the way the plug-in came with the .mod file like this:

+LiveLink 1.0 .\LiveLink

Is the only way that the plug in shows up in the plug-in manager. So, it's reading the plug-in, but there is obviously something else causing the error
