Note: As the plugins get updated, and there are new versions of Blender, the pictures will not be 100% accurate. Always use the version of Blender and the plugins mentioned on the download page even if the image shows a different version.
- Download the latest version of the plugin (io_s3py_animation .zip)
- Open blender, go to File>User Preferences>Addon
- Click “Install Addon” and choose the zip file.
- Find S3PY Animation Tools in the plugin list and make sure it is ticked
- File>Save User Settings
Having problems installing? Check these things:
- Make sure that you are using the correct version of blender. To
check in blender, click “Help>Splash Screen” and make sure it is at
the version or above that is named at the top of this post.
When adding the plugin to blender, make sure that it is a .zip file that you are adding and not a .py. If you cant find the .zip
file, your browser may have chosen to open the zip instead of saving
it. In this case you need to re-download it and this time right-click
the download link and choose Save As
If you still cannot enable it, try this method by Solvent here.
- If you are having trouble saving:
Make sure you are giving the animation a proper name. Sims animation
names must have a prefix such as “a_” for adult animations. There are
more details here.
- If you are still having problems:
Please post here and describe what happens. If you are getting errors,
it will be useful if you can post the error messages from the blender
console. To enable the blender console go to “Help> Toggle System
Console” and it will start a new window with the error details. You can
either take a screenshot of that window, or right click the title bar of
it and “Edit>Mark” and select the part you want to copy and
“Edit>Copy” and paste that into your post. Blender uses your user
folder for many things, so this console may contain your user name so
you may want to edit that out if you donâ€™t want that posted on the
