  3. Installation


  1. Unzip Folder
    The first thing to do, and it might sound a bit obvious, is to unzip the file you just got  ?
  2. Copy Files
    Place the “cosmos” folder in Maya’s script directory. Normally it’s here:
    Windows:  C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\maya\scripts\
    Mac:           /Users/USERNAME/Library/Preferences/Autodesk/maya/scripts/
  3.  Add start-command
    Add the following line to your userSetup.py in the “scripts” directory:
    import cosmos
    (If it doesn’t exist, use the one from the unzipped folder, or create a new blank text file with the above text)
    If you already have Maya open, you would need to restart it or run the previous code in the script-editor.
  4. You are ready to roll!
    Next time you start Maya you should be able to activate Cosmos with the shortcut:
    Windows: CTRL + TAB
    Mac: SHIFT + TAB

Ps. You can of course add Cosmos to whatever shortcut you want with the following code in the hotkey editor:
