Scripts Folder Mac OSX

Post by 3ddd »

Hi all @ Blender

I have have asked this question before but i am a little confused.

Please could one of the Blender users tell me in simple terms how i can find the Scripts folder on the Mac OSX version of Blender 2.42a1.

Is the file hidden in some way ?.

I would like to place a python script i want to use in this folder.

On the Windows version there is no problem as it is easy to see it in the Blender route folder.

I have never had to show hidden files before on my Mac so i am not sure how to do this.

Please can somebody help.

Many thanks

Gary.

It's hidden quite well yes. Right click the Blender application and choose Show Package Contents. Then go into Contents, MacOS. To get into the hidden .blender folder, click the Go menu in finder, then choose Go to Folder, and type .blender.

Alternatively, you can put the script in another folder, and in the User Preferences, under File Paths, set the Python path to that folder.
