Installation and Licensing

Installing Unwrella

To install Unwrella on a machine you can just use the installer to put all required files into their corresponding default directories.

Before you can use the plug-in in Maya it has to be loaded in Maya’s plug-in manager.

Open the plug-in manager (Window->Settings/Preferences->Plug-in Manager).

Scroll down in the list until you find the entry for unwrella.mll (under the path section you installed unwrella to).

Enable the checkbox ‘Loaded’ to load the plug-in. Optionally enable the checkbox ‘Auto load’ to have the plug-in available on future runs of Maya as well without having to enable it manually in the plug-in manager every time.

License Management

The demo version of Unwrella requires no license and can be installed and used freely on any number of machines.

The full version of Unwrella requires activation before it can be used. The ‘About’ area in the Unwrella window contains a button you can use to activate your license and use the plug-in. You can also use this option to deactivate the license again if you want to use it on another workstation.
