On Wednesday I was introduced to the Maya Embedded Language (MEL) script editor. While I had some previous experience with MEL scripting though controlling visual effects, this feels like a full dive into the world of programming.
I've been hesitant with coding in the past but in the case of MEL I get some enjoyment out of it. I might have to practice a little to get more confident but I am liking the possibilities that come from it. Maya is open to Python scripting, something that I've every now and again considered the possibility of learning.
