Common Errors

  • Maya simply won't load- This should only ever happen in a testing build but this may be helpful for other times with other tools as well.

    • user file - Check your maya prefs folder for the version and delete or rename the userSetup file there
    • Nuke it - delete the entire prefs folder
  • 'module' object has no attribute 'createMetaNode' - This error means that you have an old install of red9 somewhere in your maya python pathing. We include up-to-date builds of red9's tools in our repos and that particular call is one we wrote that was rolled into red9 around September 2017. Find the old version of red9, remove it or clarify the pathing to it and you should be good to go.

  • typeFactories Error - More than likely you have an old install of zooToolbox. We share some libraries so if you have a very old library it may be causing a conflict
