puppet shader SI2015

Post by Hirazi Blue » 08 Dec 2014, 10:17

Did any of you ever get the puppet shaders to work in Softimage 2015? Softimage was dropped a long time ago, but last time I checked (a couple of Softimage versions ago) you could still get them to work by using the corresponding Maya dll. This however doesn't seem to work in Softimage 2015 anymore. Any ideas, if and how it would still be possible to utilize them in Softimage 2015?

I have them working in 2015 SP1 using your method.
The auto generated GUIs/default parameter values however are horrible when using mi files, maybe you can use some of the old SPDL files to get the nicer ones.
No idea why it's not working (I don't think anything was fixed in SP1 concening this)

That's weird, because I know of this method... :D
So now I have to try again.
Which version of the Maya dll did you end up using? Which beta of the puppet shaders?
Thanks for your reply BTW.

I used the newest one from the site (3.4b6)
Didn't work first but after a restart of Softimage (and trying+undoing copying everything to the main application dir) it did.
