So I want some simple perlin noise functions to add some noise (obviously) to stuff (a camera for example).
noise 1.2.2 package looks like it does exactly what I want
so I did these steps to attempt to install it for maya
downloaded ez_setup.py (I know pip is 'better' but no idea how to use pip within maya)
installed ez_setup.py using the command prompt "mayapy.exe c:\ez_setupt.py"
than in Maya ran
from setuptools.command import easy_install
All seemed good. But when attempting to use said package
I get an ImportError
File "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Maya2016\Python\lib\site-packages
oise__init__.py", line 12, in <module>
from . import _perlin, _simplex
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.
Not sure if this is because noise is incompatible with Maya2016, or more likely I'm doing something wrong.
