I am willing to try and use ovito’s python package for manipulating atoms collections, especially for the render possibilities with ovito. That’s why I tried to install ovito and import it but I get this “(un)famous” error :
I am using spyder (eg. anaconda). It looks like the “conda install -c https://conda.ovito.org -c conda-forge ovito=3” command in the conda shell worked, and because I tried to import ovito afterwards and got for the first time the error message above, I tried after a “pip install ovito” (which confirmed ovito’s package was installed), always restarting the computer in between. I still get this error message.
After wandering on ovito’s forum, I found some problems related to this one and it looked like Ovito’s developper A. Stukowski implemented the conda installation not so long ago and that it should now be working.
It looks a bit weird because ovito’s python package looks like it’s well installed, I can find it and all the init files in anaconda3/lib/site packages.
