My old and faithful Export Script has stopped working properly on Hype after a System Re-installation and I don't know why


(Carlos Eduardo) #1

After getting help from several people here on this forum, I had this perfect Export script for my workflow. And I still have it here. I had to format my Mac, but I had my export script saved.

Now, I’m trying to use it again and Hype is not properly working with it. Menus aren’t showing up like they should as well as actions.

Can anyone help me out here? DoubleClick DCM kdu V3.hype-export.py.zip (4.7 KB)

You may need to modify the script’s permissions. See this thread:

chmod 755 ~/Library/Application Scripts/com.tumult.Hype2/file.py

That did it. Thank you so much.

Is that High Sierra’s fault? Cause I never had to do this!

When I download your file and check the permissions (by running ls -l) I get:

-rw-r--r--@

Transmit has the best interface for seeing what this means:

24%20PM

So the file was ‘644’, aka: rw-r--r--

When Chmodding the file as 755, it sets permissions to: -rwxr-xr-x which means the Python interpreter can run it. Most of these symbols are rather greek to me, but the gist of it is that you want to allow the user to both read, write, and execute the file. Sometimes when moving a file from one place to another the execute part is lost, so Python doesn’t have rights to work its magic.
