Could they please fix this, I was working on a project, and would really love to stick to Blender 4.0, its causing me a headache, i thought i could use, rigify, but mixamo's offers a faster workflow for me. Even when installing it takes longer and halts for some reason now, and i have to click to the side or resize the window to show the addon, when i proceed to activate it, the error pops up.

please @Adobe fix this.

Managed to solve it

Pasted the error text in Chat GPT and it worked.

Aronsaur_05EE6_2-1701883369220.png

 

Used option 3 and tweaked the code a bit.

Aronsaur_05EE6_0-1701882598292.png

 

Found the file: 

Aronsaur_05EE6_1-1701882740270.png

Or by command line using cd:

/Users/aaronbl/Library/Application Support/Blender/4.0/scripts/addons

And using teh command "open ." to openning it on finder.

Opened the file in VS Code. Copied all the code there and give it to chat GPT....

Here is the whole conversation: https://chat.openai.com/share/4ca619f5-aecf-4ab5-a4fb-5357fb657255

 

 

Then copied and pasted the code he gave me, pressed command + s to save, went to blender and all worked fine. Cheers

it is working very well!

the fix is easy:

  1.  Go to the file ".../Blender/4.0/scripts/addons/mixamo_rig/lib/version.py" 
  2.  Line 7 is `_char = bpy.app.version_char`
  3. Replace it with `_char = getattr(bpy.app, 'version_char', '')`
  4. save and enable addon.

This worked like a charm. Nisim gave the info if you already had it installed after an update. If you're downloading it fresh:

  1. Download the plugin
  2. Extract the ZIP
  3. Go into the folders to 'mixamo_rig/lib/version.py'
  4. Replace line 7 with '_char = bpy.app.version_char', so that it fetches the new version number properly
  5. Save the file, and ZIP the mixamo_rig folder again. Then just add it in Blender as you would any other plugin.

    Quick fix, and works great.

Thank you very much. Keep in mind that if you got it off of blender market
then it's fully supported so it's not like the old times if you have
issues.... Like even uploading a character to Mixamo for rigging like if
the textures aren't attached ....then let me know and I'll work out logic
for that... And automate the process of getting your character ready....
because that's kind of a thing that Adobe left untouched in their add on is
making that part easier.... And if anybody reads this and has their tips
that they wanna throw in as a reply to this that would really help because
starting off I really know nothing about it

Hi, 

I encounter 2 more exceptions in the Python code when using the command "Apply Animation to Control Rig".

so to make it easier for all I fixed all the issues and packed them in the addon zip file. it support Blender v3 and v4.

Both the exceptions were in the file armature.py.

Sharing it using Dropbox:

One more thing about the addon for Blender v4.0.

I did encounter issues with some features when creating new characters and using the rigging action. However, the issue is not created when using Blender v3.6.x.

So what I did is create the complex flow in 3.6 and use/import it to 4.0. this is when you encounter too many issues.

Did you download the latest link that's under the video the one I'm
providing free there that's the latest updated version..... Did you attempt
to add a rig to a character you either rigged off the MIXAMO website or a
character you downloaded from that website specifically because that's the
way the add-on is supposed to work... If that's how you did it.... can you
email your blender file Or a link to your blender file that you get from
saving it on Google Drive and the error message... And for the character
that I could pull up in a blender and try and rig....

Just a heads up this doesn't work in Blender 4.0. When you go to 'create control rig' it just crashes.

Did you buy the version of blender market?   they're currently evaluating my page because they said I had missing images so you might not be able to get it for a couple days until they reapprove it but then that's the completely fixed version https://blendermarket.com/products/fast-animation-studio-tools  i'm selling it on my blender market page for $5 but it's fully supported.
