It's probably a stretch, but maybe someone knows the answer. I'm using Environmental variables in Blender to sync some paths between several machines. It worked fine between several Windows machines + a Mac with High Sierra but on a Mac with Catalina Blender sees my variables only if I run it from Terminal.
I suspect this has something to do with the fact that Catalina uses
zsh instead on
bash as a default shell but I'm not sure how to fix this. Anyway, when I open Terminal and echo my var I see:
sergeykritskiy@Sergeys-MacBook-Pro ~ % echo $BLENDER_SCRIPTS /*path*/blender_scripts
my variable is set in
If I run Blender normally by clicking the
Blender.app icon and try to get this variable from Python Console:
>>> import os >>> os.environ["BLENDER_SCRIPTS"] Traceback (most recent call last): File "<blender_console>", line 1, in <module> File "/Applications/Blender.app/Contents/Resources/2.83/python/lib/python3.7/os.py", line 678, in __getitem__ raise KeyError(key) from None KeyError: 'BLENDER_SCRIPTS'
However if I run blender using a Terminal from
/Applications/Blender.app/Contents/MacOS/Blender it sees the variable:
>>> import os >>> os.environ["BLENDER_SCRIPTS"] '/*path*/blender_scripts'
Is there a way for Blender to see the variable when I run it normally?
