can someone please help me??

BTW the files i downloaded were


I tried the same file downloaded from Feeling Software web site, I found there are several things you need to do:

  1. You need to run the installation script from the folder where the script is.

  2. Edit the script to replace the ‘Output/Release/COLLADA_m2008.bundlet’ with ‘build/Release/COLLADA_m2008.bundle’. If you check the decompressed package, that’s where the bundle file resides.

  3. While I was editing the script, there were two trailing ‘carriage return’ at the end of the first two command lines. I had to delete them in order for the script to execute properly, chances are you’ll need to do the same. If you use ‘vim’ to edit, delete the ‘^M’ symbols at the end of the two lines. After this step, you should be able to see the plug-in copied to the right place.

Note: You might still encounter problem when you load the COLLADA plugin using the Maya plug-in manager due to Cg version incompatibility issue, I am still searching for a way to get around the problem.

we’ll provide an updated installer-version for the nextGen and the FCollada based COLLADAMaya plugins next week that are based on Autodesk uninstaller mechanism. Please stay tuned
