Postby hazardsmack » Sat Jun 16, 2012 4:06 pm

Hey, ive tried for about 3 days now to get the realflow plugin working on maya and ive installed three different versions and now it has been coming up with all of the icons but none of them work, i got it to work once but for some reason all the materials in mental ray had dissapeared, please if anyone knows how to manually install the plugin or anything i just want to get it done, i thought it was working spent a day simulating a big river scene and then it didnt work. anyone know anything about i would appreciate a response thanks.

Hi

a better place for plugin bug reports is the official RF forum.

You are not trying to install it in Maya2013, aren't you ? We are still waiting for that to arrive.

Ok, I see. I think you have to change your Maya.env file where the default locations of files are stored. There is a Help-page for that topic named "Setting environment variables using Maya.env"

I just checked in my Maya2012 where the RF plugin is working. This installation was made for all users of this particular machine (see attached image).
