createStandIn doesn't work in MtoA 3.0.0.x

Hi,

We noticed that the function createStandIn (in mtoa/core.py) has switched from using pyMel to maya cmds. The problem is that the createNode function in pyMel returns a node, whereas the cmds version of the same returns a string. This makes the line standIn.dso.set(path) not working.

Thanks for reporting, I've logged it.

You'll have to workaround it in your script (or patch core.py) until we fix it. For example:

import mtoa.core
standin = mtoa.core.createStandIn()
path = "C:/Users/blairs/Documents/maya/projects/default/data/example_standin.ass"
cmds.setAttr('{}.dso'.format(standin), path, type="string")

Thanks, that's exactly what we did in our code :)
