By learning how to script with MEL, artists can maximize the power of Maya and customize it for their own specific needs. Written from an artist's perspective, this book makes learning MEL scripting easy. It begins by introducing basic programming and scripting concepts, and explains how these concepts relate to MEL. Using practical projects, artists then learn to use the MEL language in animation, expressions, lighting, rendering, custom tool and interface creation, and file handling. A detailed appendix on the most commonly encountered vector and 3D math solutions is also included. This is the one resource for Maya users ready to master MEL.
