Unhappy ZV Parent install

Hi

Im trying to get Zv parent open in Maya but i cant find any instructions on where to place the folder and how to open the plug in once i have Maya opened. I cant see itin my plugin manager. Ive tried to search several forums here but with no success. I believe ZV is a very popular tool, so maybe someone out there knows the procedure and can pass it on. Many thanks

Dave

Never heard of it, but it seems to be an animated constraint system.

Did you read the readme file? It says:

3. In Maya open the Script Editor and go to the Python tab, copy and paste these two rows below:

import ZvParentMaster
ZvParentMaster.ZvParentMaster()

4. Highlight it and click on "Save Script to Shelf...", specify a name and click "OK".
This should sort it out.
