Run Pyside2 in Maya 2016(Pyside)



I being using Pyside2 for a while and all my scripts are done using pyside2
But in the studio Im working they use maya 2016
Is there a workaround tu run Pyside2 in Maya 2016


Sadly no.
PySide2 requires some version of Qt5 (don’t remember the minor version needed)
While Maya 2016 is still based on a version of Qt4.

So the bindings just aren’t compatible.

An alternative would be using a library that lets you write code compatible with both:


There’s now also a companion project for converting a PySide/PyQt project to for compatibility with all bindings.
