Using LayLo 3D Plug-Ins in Maya 2022

April 30, 2021 Leave a comment


With the release of Maya 2022 Autodesk has decided to ship it with the Python 3 interpreter enabled by default. Previously Maya had shipped with a Python 2 interpreter enabled by default. At this point all of my Maya plug-ins are written for Python 2 and if you try to load them in Maya 2022 with the Python 3 interpreter enabled you will get an invalid syntax error.

The good news is Maya 2022 for Windows is packaged with both Python 2 and Python 3 interpreters, so all my plug-ins can still be used in Maya 2022 you just have to set Maya to start with the Python 2 interpreter.

Here is a link to Maya’s help on how to do so: https://help.autodesk.com/view/MAYAUL/2022/ENU/?guid=GUID-C0F27A50-3DD6-454C-A4D1-9E3C44B3C990

I do have plans of offering both Python 2 and Python 3 version of my plug-ins in the future. Stay tuned for more information.
