Maya2egg command not found

Hi everyone, my environment is MacBook 2019, Python 3.10 and Panda3D 1.10.

I read the document about converting from Maya(Converting from Maya — Panda3D Manual). When I type maya2egg -h in the Terminal, its response is bash: maya2egg: commend not found. Do I need to install something before I use maya2egg?

Thanks for your reading.

How did you install Panda3D, via pip or via the .dmg?

Which precise version of Panda3D do you have?

Which version of Maya do you have installed on your computer?

Are you able to run other Panda3D tools, such as pview, from the Terminal?

Thanks for your reply.
I use conda to create a python 3.10 environment. Then I use command pip install panda3d==1.10.11 to install Panda3D. I don’t have it installed Maya on my MacBook. I can run pview in the Terminal.

@caden_caden I want to warn you not to use the EGG, this format is outdated. Think about using gltf.

I don’t know why maya2egg isn’t found; I suspect that perhaps they are not included with the wheel. In any case, you can’t use maya2egg without a Maya installation.

The .egg format is not deprecated just yet; we do encourage use of glTF with the panda3d-gltf plug-in, but egg is not officially considered officially “outdated” yet.

There is only one problem, when it is officially announced, you may find yourself in an unpleasant trap.
