Hello everybody !

Has anyone managed to make the cgfx plugin work with Maya 6.5 ? I'm dreaming of a nice new plugin that could make the cg shader work like it used to in the 4.5 version.

I guess Alias is aware of that problem, so does anyone know if they made any comment or suggest any solution to make this plugin works.

I also find it strange that they released the plugin ( once more with the 6.5 version ) without testing it... so it must be working somehow.

thanks for your attention !


here are some links for those who would like to know more about cgfx in maya ( if are still working with maya 4.5 or 5.0 ) :

The key is finding the correct CGToolKit for the correct version of Maya. For 6.5 use CGToolKit v.1.2.1 ... if you have a ToolKit already installed, simply running this 10meg Cg_1.2.1_Setup.exe (ftp://download.nvidia.com/developer/cg/Cg_1.2.1/Windows/Cg_1.2.1_Setup.exe) should work.

This is documented in Alias's help under bonusTools menu.

cheers,
