Linux / Mac
git checkout blender_migration
Download Blender 2.78
- Install Blendercomprimises
tar -xjvf blender-2.78c-linux-glibc219-x86_64.tar.bz2 mv blender-2.78c-linux-glibc219-x86_64 blender
Continuity requires a full install of Python 3.5. Download and move this gzip of Python 3.5 into the blender/2.78/ directory.
mv python.tar.gzip blender/2.78/ cd blender/2.78/ mv python blenders_old_python tar -xvzf python.tar.gzip
Note this compromises the use of the blender executable without using the start script (startBlender.sh) inside the Continuity repo
Continuity is a Blender add-on. We need to make Blender find it inside it's add-on directory with a symbolic link. From the blender/2.78/ directory:
cd scripts/addonscomprimisescomprimises ln -s path_to_Continuity_git_repo Continuity
To give inform our start scripts where Blender is add the path to Blender to our systemSpecific/blenderDir.txt in the Continuity repository. Mine looks like:
$ cat systemSpecific/blenderDir.txt /home/seb/cont_dev/blender
- Blender will try to launch Continuity when using Continuity as a Blender add-on, we must makes sure that Continuity is up to date. From the Continuity repository:
When you see listening on port 9970 stop the server with CTRL+C
- Now blender is ready to be launched. Start Blender with:
- Attach the add-on so every time we start Blender it also launches Continuity. Inside Blender:
"File"→"User Preferences..." Select the "Add-ons" tab Search for "Continuity" Check the box for "System:Continuity" Click "Save User Settings"
