How to open PAIE in Maya

Submitted by: Venneberg Venneberg

I have a feeling that this is a really stupid question but here we go anyway:

I have downloaded PAIE and put in the scipt folder and in Maya I run the "import paie;paie.GUI()" in the Python script editor and it runs fine and gives me the command; 
"import paie;paie.GUI()" 
# Result: import paie;paie.GUI() # 

But from then I dont know how to open it? Nothing happens and I suspect that its just a super simple button I have to click...
Thanks a lot in advance!

    Hi Karina, Actually it's supposed to open when you type the line: "import paie;paie.GUI()" What the line does is to import the tool: "import paie" and then launching it's gui with: "paie.GUI()" The semicolon separates the two commands so that you can write it all on one line. If it doesn't show the GUI after that does it give any error? What version of Maya and chat OS are you using? I admit that I haven't tested it on too many different combinations lately, but I'm working in Maya 2015 on Windows right now and it works flawlessly.

    I occurred to me that it may not be obvious that the (") is merely to show that it's a command and shouldn't actually be typed. So instead of writing: "import paie;paie.GUI()" you should write import paie;paie.GUI() Does that by any chance help you?

    Hej Simba, Does it give you the same output as Venneberg posted? Remember that the command shouldn't have quotes around it when you write it in the Python command line. Should just be: import paie; paie.GUI() If that still doesn't work try writing only import paie Does it give any error? If not try writing paie.GUI() Does it say anything? If you still cannot get it working then reply here with whatever it's saying when you write those commands. Hope it helps. Cheers
