  1. I’ve downloaded and imported this package through Unity, but in Readme under requirements is written Unity Pro…is that so?
    probably that’s why I cannot get it to work…

  2. Yes. The whole thing makes extensive use of the AssetPostprocessor class, which I believe is unfortunately unavailable in the basic version of Unity.

  3. That´s odd. I´ve been using the free version of Unity, and while I haven´t tested the blendshape support. The Maya constraint support and such seem to work perfectly! Perhaps only certain features are not functional with Unity Free?

  4. Hi Juan,

    The components will still work fine, so you can manually create constraints in your Unity project. What requires Pro is the ability to automatically import those from the Maya file; unless you’re saying that works for you, which would be (happy) news to me.

  5. Hi Adam,
    Yes, I’ve been able to automatically import .ma files into unity while preserving constraints without any issues. Congratulations on a fantastic toolset, and on your tremendous generosity.

  6. Hello,
    The workflow for blendshapes from Maya into Unity and the whole toolset is really great. Thank you so much, this will save me a great deal of time.

    I’ve run into a problem, and I hope you can help me. The problem is that I am unable to import animated meshes that have blendshapes on them from Maya correctly. Normal non-skinned meshes work fine.
    When Unity imports them the source maya file, the python script creates the additional meshes, but it does not attach the blendshape script to the object itself. It also seems to merge both the source and blendshape meshes into one when you drag the object into the scene.

    Is there anything that can be done to fix this?


  7. It’s been over a year since the last comment/question, but I hope you’re still checking this?
    Anyway, I found your tools, which I think will be just what I need to get blendshapes from Maya into Unity.
    I’ve downloaded the maya plugins, and have them loaded through the plugin manager, but when I type ‘import amTools’ I get this error: # Error: ImportError: No module named amTools

    I am using Maya 2012 on Mac OS Lion (10.7.4)

    Any help would be appreciated!

  8. Hi Lori,

    It sounds like the rest of the modules (i.e. the amTools folder) are not in a location in your Maya Python search path. By default, I believe any of the following locations should be okay for you:
