Default Comet Tools

I just purchased and downloaded "Maya Rigging Techniques with Carlo Sansonetti".
It seems that many of the techniques shown involve using a number of mel scripts called Comet Tools. Unfortunately these are not supported beyond Maya 6.5 and I am using Maya 2008. Does anyone know of a workaround for this as I cannot figure out how to do what he is doing without them.

Thanks

Try going to his website and see if it says what he uses now.
Or maybe he has a link to something like it.
I remember something about autodesk buying and incorporating one of the muscle systems into maya , but don't remember which one it was.

Default Comet Tools

Thanks. I went to his site comet-cartoons.com and sent him an e-mail in regard to the matter. Hopefully there is something available.

Follow-up: Received instructions on how to make it work. So it does in fact work with 2008.

I ran into the same problem, only with Maya 2009. Can you share how you were able to make it work?

Hello. i'm also having difficulties with this plug-in. I am rigging and weighting my character and I purchased both dvds but they both use Comet Tools and i can't seem to be able to make it work. I've done everything that they say but i don't know if the one i have is up to date. Please help me get this worked out.

Default Same problem

Same problem as everybody above, I can't get the comet tools to work with Maya 2009. I'd love some help.

got it. I added the comet scripts dir to Maya.env and then sourced the menu from usersetup.mel

If anyone has a problem with this in the future, hit this thread. I will get an email notification and come back to help.

Hey ckwon, can you let me know how you went about this? I am running 2010 so might be even tougher to get it working but worth a try I suppose...

1. put your comet tools here:

C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\maya\2009-x64\scripts\comet

2.

create a maya.env text file here:

C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\maya\2009-x64

maya.env contains:

MAYA_SCRIPT_PATH=C:\Users\ck\Documents\maya\2009-x64\scripts\comet

3.

In this directory:

C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\maya\2009-x64\scripts

you may have a file userSetup.mel

if it exists, append this line:

source cometMenu.mel;

if not create the userSetup.mel that contains that line.

*

That worked for me.
