hello
i tried to render animation with this code but i got error
Code: Select all
    def renderAnimation(self):
        inPath = self.anim_input.text().toAscii().data()
        mxsList = getFilesFromPath(inPath, 'mxs')

        scene = Cmaxwell(mwcallback)
        for mxs in mxsList:
            scene.readMXS(os.path.join(inPath, mxs))
            #ok = scene.writeMXS(os.path.join(outPath, mxs))
            #outPath = self.edit_input_file.text().toAscii().data()
            outMxi = self.edit_mxi_file.text().toAscii().data()

            outImg = self.edit_img_file.text().toAscii().data()
            #outDen = self.edit_den_file.text().toAscii().data()
            choice = os.path.join(inPath, mxs)

You found another bug! pymaxwell module expects Maxwell 3 installed instead of Maxwell 4.

To workaround this, you can define your own "runMaxwell" function like this, is quite simple:

Code: Select all
def myRunMaxwell( parameters ):
	if sys.platform == 'win32' or sys.platform == 'linux2':
		try:
			mwroot = os.environ['MAXWELL4_ROOT'];
		except:
			print('MAXWELL4_ROOT environment variable not found!');

	if sys.platform == 'win32':
		parameters.insert(0,mwroot+'/maxwell.exe');
	elif sys.platform == 'linux2':
		parameters.insert(0,mwroot+'/maxwell');
	elif sys.platform == 'darwin':
		parameters.insert(0,'/Applications/Maxwell Render 4/maxwell.app/Contents/MacOS/maxwell');
	else:
		error;

	subprocess.call(parameters);

I detect some possible bugs:

Code: Select all
    def renderAnimation(self):

            ...
            
            self.myRunMaxwell(parameters); # this call must include the parameters as input
            
            ...


    def myRunMaxwell(self,parameters): # since you defined myRunMaxwell inside a class, you must have "self" as the first input parameter

this one give me error : self.myRunMaxwell(parameters)

i don't know why the render don't work ; i reinsatll maxwell and remove all files in the folder but the problem still happened.
i tried again with single scene and i got this error inpycharm :
