I am having a terrible time getting the Maya egging tools to work with recent versions of Maya. (Win7-64; Maya 2010 & 2011; 32-bit & 64-bit versions).
maya2egg2010 doesn’t seem to exist in any of the Windows builds. maya2egg2011 exists in recent snapshot builds but doesn’t work with the 64-bit version of Maya and crashes frequently with the 32-bit.
When I use the mel script, it crashes upon dragging it into the workspace (//Error: Controls must have a layout. No layout found in window:). When I use the command line tools, it goes into an infinite loop saying it can’t find a texture file (even when I pass the -ignore flag to ignore non-fatal errors). UPDATE – I fiddled around with my textures and got it to run successfully! I still don’t know why the Mel script crashes so badly.
