When I start up blender, it loads the python software, all of the scripts that came with blender work fine, and life is rosy… but then if I try to run any other python scripts (e.g. The 3ds Max converstion script or Ter2Blend) Those scripts never fail to say “Python script error:check console.” :x %|
No, I’m not lazy…I’ve looked all over the internet for reasons why my downloaded scripts aren’t working; I’ve even seen multiple conversatioins on this forum about this problem, but I still can’t figure it out. Please help me. I would be eternally grateful.
The scripts were possibly written for an earlier version that used Python 2.2.2 or even as far back as 1.5.
But, if you look in the console, as the message suggests (in Mac and Linux you’ll need to open one from Applications) there will be an error message that will tell you exactly why it refuses. That doesn’t mean you’ll be able to decipher it, but someone here will.
The console is a black, DOS-type cmd window (in windoze it runs behind blender). What you gave us islines of highlighted text, not the error message. The error message will start with “Traceback, most recent call…”
Oh yes, And Topix and Flock won’t work (maybe on Blender 2.28) as they’re both proof-of-concept scripts (for coders). Ter2Blend must be Version 4, and you’ll have to give us a link to the 3DS script for anyone to know if it’s current.
Look @ blender3d.org for python scripts they should be up to date, as for the Ter2Blend, I had updated it so I could use, but like everything on my computer I removed it. Its not too hard to update script just know what changed where made in the python/blender api.
