How can I install the magic uv addon? I have the zip file and I have unzipped the file What do I do next? Do I have to copy the complete unzipped file or just uv_magic_uv folder in blender addon folder? How do I activate it? I can't find the addon in the search also.

Addon download here

Can you please show me how to do this on a clear and detailed step by step answer? Thanks

  • $\begingroup$ No need to unzip the file. Just open the user preferences and select "install from file", select the zip file and enable it. $\endgroup$ – user1853 Jan 10 '17 at 5:03
  • $\begingroup$ @cegaton Yes i have done it but i cant find the addon in search to activate $\endgroup$ – atek Jan 10 '17 at 6:34
  • First unzip the file. You'll have a folder with .py files in it.
  • Then go to the "scripts" folder in your blender installation directory.
  • In the "scripts" folder you'll find another folder named "addons". Open that.
  • Then copy the folder you have unzipped in to this "addons" folder.

You're done. Now all you need to do is open Blender and go to File -> User Preferences. Go to the "Add-ons" tab and search for it and it'll be there. Make sure the "Community" supported level is turned on.

    $\begingroup$ Or you can click the Install from File button in the Add-ons panel and choose the zip file, and Blender will unzip it to the correct location. $\endgroup$ – user27640 Jan 10 '17 at 8:59
