In this DVD, Instructor Luiz Kruel gives a comprehensive and applicable overview of scripting with Autodesk Maya.
Luiz starts off with the basics and goes through the UI, variables, arrays, commenting, and more. Luiz then goes into more complicated commands and builds a Mel script to zero out controls on a character. From there, he spends a large portion of the DVD on Python and shows how to write very practical scripts to use in production. Luiz walks you though creating a pivot script, combine script, x-ray script, separation, widgets, collision tool, and finally a renamer script.
The DVD is a must-have for those who want to learn how to start scripting in Autodesk Maya today.
