Couture feedbacks

General / 08 October 2018

Hi there,

Couture is one week old ! And when I'm writing this article, we reached 1699 downloads! Thank you guys and don't hesitate to spread the word, in our world there's still too many 3D artist which are terrified with cloth retopology !

I have two feedback from user that I need to share with you.


Path issue with Linux


[EDIT] I updated a new version of couture that should take care of this issue

 However on Linux there is a difference between "\" and "/", I developed coutrure on windows so you might need to change that on the folderPath

You can add this line on line 62 in the coutureUI.py

folderPath = '/usr/maya/201XX/scripts/Couture'

Also if the code to launch couture isn't working on Linux try with this one 

import sys
sys.path.append('/usr/maya/2016.5/Couture/scripts')
import Couture.coutureUI as cUI
reload(cUI)
cUI.coutureInterface(dock=True)

Import issues with multiple object combined in a single OBJ files

Be carefull when you're importing a mesh in obj, because maya might carry some unwanted object that will complicate the work of pymel.
When I need to convert a node to Pymel I use the script 

pm.PyNode("NodeName") 

And if you have some node with the same name it won't be able to work.

We can see on this example that maya will import in the outliner some groups in maya sets. Simply delete those and you are ready to go !

Thanks to Min-Yu Chang and Travis Smith for the feedbacks !

Cheers !
