Howto compile a Maya Plug-in on OS X? - webwarrior - Dec 11, 2004 03:24 PM

Hello,

I'm trying to write a simple tool that let me export something from Maya into my own file format. I'm new to Maya and I don't have a clue about how to write a plug-in for it. Searching the internet I found a promising site and I tried to compile an example. The author provides a Visual-C++ project and a Linux Makefile, but nothing for OS X of course. Can anyone help me adapt the Linux Makefile? Or does someone know how to setup a project for Maya in Xcode? (actually, I would prefer the makefile Smile. I just can't get it working, and I don't know where the libs and headers for the maya stuff are located.

Thanks a lot

Btw, the sources I'm using can be found here:

As this is not my own machine, I don't have the CDs, I just have what's installed here. At least I couldn't find anything. There are quite some docs, the API and stuff like that, but there's nothing to get you started. I consider getting a copy of Brian Greenstone's book, as someone told me that there is a part about writing Maya Plug-ins...
