How do I get a Python script to work in Blender? Answered
I am using Blender quite extensively right now, and I would like to be able to import and export md5 models. Unfortunately, Blender does not do this natively, so I had to find and download a Python script.
That's when the trouble started.
I am new to Python, so I have no idea where to properly place the scripts and how to run them. After some searching, I believe I located the correct folder: Blender/contents/MacOS/2.57/scripts
Within this folder are 5 folders. They are as follows:
There is also a python folder in the 2.57 folder which contains a library for scripts, but I believe these are for python itself rather than Blender.
The files I am trying to install are as follows:
I tried opening each of these in terminal to attempt to 'install' them, but got this message:
File "/Applications/blender-2.57-release-OSX_10.5_i386/blender.app/Contents/MacOS/2.57/scripts/modules/md5Import_0.5.1.py", line 33, in <module>
ImportError: No module named Blender
(I did not include some command lines because they contain my name and my computer's name.)
What am I doing wrong? Where do I put these files? Is there something wrong with the filenames? Do I have to do anything fancy to get them to run in Blender? Any help is appreciated!
I am running Blender 2.57 on Mac OSX v. 10.6.7
