Hello

We would like to try out the city engine for Maya plugin while we are evaluation the product on out 30 day trial.

The documentation only seems to mention how to get it working on a floating license, are we able to use our 30 day trial license at all?

Thank you.

Hello Sean

Yes this is possible. You have to set the parameters for the node locked license accordingly.

The default config (ESRI_CE_SDK_LIC_FEATURE=CityEngAdvFx) should already give the right configuration for the trail version.

esri-cityengine-sdk/README_windows.md at master · Esri/esri-cityengine-sdk · GitHub

  1. Locate the directory where you copied the plugin, let's call it PLUGINDIR
  2. Locate the Maya.env file in your home, usually its in "My Documents\maya\2016"
  3. Edit Maya.env as follows:
:: use CityEngAdv for floating license
ESRI_CE_SDK_LIC_FEATURE=CityEngAdvFx

:: uncomment for floating license
:: ESRI_CE_SDK_LIC_HOST=27000@my.flexnet.host

:: replace <PLUGINDIR> with the actual path
PATH=<PLUGINDIR>\plug-ins;%PATH%
MAYA_PLUG_IN_PATH=<PLUGINDIR>\plug-ins
MAYA_SCRIPT_PATH=<PLUGINDIR>\scripts
