Hi,

I would like to install/distribute Carbon without using the installer, as I do with other maya plugins, just putting the contents on the right folders.
I have a custom location and structure for all my maya plugins, where i manually install them organized and correctly versioned.
Is there any guide on how to manually install this plugin ? Could you provide a downloadable zipped version too ?

Thansk in advance, and congratulations for the plugin !
Kind regards,
Juan

Hi Juan,

Thanks for your message. We will try to better support this in the near future.

For now, if you would like to manually place the contents of the exe, I would suggest opening it with a program, such as WinRAR.
In there, you will find a numerion folder, that contains either MY2018 or MY2019 (as of version 1.0.0), or Maya2018 or Maya2019 (beta versions).
These contain the plugin folder (named Plugin_v[plugin_version]) which contains all of the relevant plugin content (shelves, scripts, plug-ins [for mll], icons, and documentation).

You can move the plugin folder to any custom location, just make sure to add a module file pointing to that location.

Our default Carbon.mod module file looks like this for the upcoming 1.0.0 release:

+ MAYAVERSION:2018 PLATFORM:win64 Carbon 1.0.0 C:\Users\Sebastian\Documents\numerion\MY2018\Plugin_v1.0.0
MAYA_SHELF_PATH += C:\Users\Sebastian\Documents\numerion\MY2018\Plugin_v1.0.0\shelves

For versions below 1.0.0, it would be:

+ MAYAVERSION:2018 PLATFORM:win64 Carbon 1.0.0 C:\Users\Sebastian\Documents\numerion\Maya2018\Plugin_v1.0.0
MAYA_SHELF_PATH += C:\Users\Sebastian\Documents\numerion\Maya2018\Plugin_v1.0.0\shelves

The default location for the Carbon.mod module file in Windows is:
%USERPROFILE%\Documents\maya\[maya_version]\modules

If you move Carbon.mod to a different location, make sure to add the file path pointing to the Carbon.mod to the MAYA_MODULES_PATH, which can be set either in the Maya.env file or as system environment variable. More information on this:

I hope this helps.
Please let me know if you have any questions.

Cheers,
Sebastian
