Problem loading PVRGeoPod plug-in for Mac Maya 2017

I’m trying to load the PVRGeoPOD plug-in for Mac Maya 2017. I’ve put everything in the correct directly and attempted to load through Maya, but get the following error:

// Error: line 1: Unable to dynamically load : /Users/Shared/Autodesk/maya/plug-ins/PVRGeoPOD_v2017.bundle
dlopen(/Users/Shared/Autodesk/maya/plug-ins/PVRGeoPOD_v2017.bundle, 1): Library not loaded: /Users/Shared/qt/4.8.6/lib/QtCore.framework/Versions/4/QtCore

What can I do to fix this?

Hi Adam,

I am sorry that there are still problems on Maya 2017. The documentation is wrong and the path where the plugin should be copied is: /Users/Shared/Autodesk/maya/plug-ins/
Sadly, I have found that the plugin we have released crashes. It was fully tested before release, but I think we might have introduced a bug in one of the last minute re-spins. I am having a look at this now.

Thanks.

Carlos.

Do you have any idea when this will be fixed? Getting Maya files into .pod format on Mac is crucial to our workflow - and suddenly it seems impossible?

Hi Adam,

I am looking into this right now, but I do not know yet what is the problem so I cannot give you an estimate. I will update you with a new version as soon as I’ve got it fixed. I the mean time, maybe you could export to FBX and from there to POD using our stand-alone exporter. It is not as convenient but it might unblock you in the mean time.

Regards.

Carlos.

Hi Adam,

I have fixed this issue. I have tested it on Maya 2017 and it seems fine now.
This fix will be in our next release. In the mean-time I have copied it here:

Followed instructions in attached file and although I don’t get any error messages now, the file doesn’t ‘load’ when I click on it in the plug-in manager.

Hi Adam,

The instructions are correct. Just copy the contents of PVRGeoPOD\Plugins\Maya\2017\OSX_x86
(PVRGeoPOD_v2017.bundle and the PVRGeoPOD folder)
in
/Users/Shared/Autodesk/maya/2017/plugins

I do not have any problem loading it.
Maya should give you a message if the plugin does not load. What does it say?

Thanks.

Carlos.

Pretty much back to original problem:

// Error: line 1: Unable to dynamically load : /Users/Shared/Autodesk/maya/2017/plug-ins/PVRGeoPOD_v2017.bundle

[b]As mentioned, I’ve gone back to following only your official documentation with this new update you’ve linked to.

Your computer however probably has a lot of the other fixes etc. mentioned previously in this topic being applied also. [/b]

Hi Adam,

That was my fault. The path to QT was wrong (as before). It works for me because I have QT installed.
I have fixed all paths and I have tested it removing the QT installation and now it should work fine for you (fingers crossed).
I have copied an new version here: http://cdn.imgtec.com/sdk/HotFix/PVRGeoPOD_Maya2017.tgz

Hi Adam,

Glad that finally it works for you :slight_smile:
I will put all the fixes in our next official release.

Regards.

Carlos.
