MHX2 Import addon in Blender preferences

by DukeMargiris   Last Updated March 14, 2019 19:15 PM - source

I am having an issue with installing the MHX2 MakeHuman addon in Blender 2.76. Under my user preferences, no MakeHuman option is listed. I've extracted the MHX2 folder into the Addons directory, moved it there manually, taken the two main folders out and put them in separately, created a MakeHuman folder to place both in, and so far nothing is showing up when I run Blender. Has anyone had this issue and know how to work around it?

See the installation instructions at

You only need to copy the import_runtime_mhx2 subfolder to the addons folder, not the entire archive.

If the addon came zipped, in most cases you can just go to the Blender preferences, and click install from file. Just navigate to the .zip file and double click it.

Does this work with Blender 2.8?
