add the path to your messiah directory to your MAYA_PLUG_IN_PATH environment
variable in your Maya.env file

to use the plugin you use the "messiah" MEL command......

messiah -ax // adds the messiahXform node to the currently selected
messiah -ad // adds the messiahDform node to the currently selected
messiah // launches the messiah interface

for maya4.5 catch the new file form the messiah-yahoogroups.....

That's pretty much all you need to do.

The may4 plug should be pretty stable, but I haven't used it since I got the 4.5 upgrade

a few caveats on the 4.5 plugin, though..

parent your camera to a locator. you can't attach xform to the camera directly just yet.

objects with Dform applied will come into messiah approx. 100 times bigger.

other small things, but it's useable right now, should you need to get a project going.

the Pmg people are constantly improving the connections. Just keep in contact with em and stuff will get fixed.
