Special Note For Vista Users:

Because of the different file structure use the following steps to install the YS Paint Scripts.

  1. Install Python and Blender (This works best with only one version of blender installed on your computer)
  2. Do a global search on your C:/ Drive for "3ds_export.py"
  3. This will bring you to the correct folder to deposit the paint scripts
  4. Follow the rest of the windows installation tutorial.
