I have a project I need Pillow for. Is there a way to install it into blender 2.77a? The pillow windows installer just finds a python version if I install one seperatly. If I can not install "pillow" directly, is there a way to use the pre-installed python 3.5.1?
I already tried to delete the python directory and to copy the site-packages.

Other solutions found on Stack-Exchange do not work for me, maybe they do not work for Windows, maybe not for blender 2.77a.


It's just a guess, but you might want to use a external Python 3 for using Blender scripts instead of the bundled one. Since the installer does automatically set the registry, Pillow'll probably recognize it.

  • $\begingroup$ With the solution there I can import PIL, but as soon as I try importing anything else I get another error: ImportError: DLL load failed: %1 is not a valid Win32 application. $\endgroup$ – schustudrai Apr 23 '16 at 18:43
