Who should read this:
Hello Maya artists, this is going to be place where i will post my learning experience with Python in Maya. There will be small scripts and hopefully one day, great ones. I will also post my experience and problems i may encounter. It will be a great reading for newcomers in Maya Python, but experienced TA’s and TD’s will certainly have a laugh reading it.(go on, i encorage you to comment my post with TD jokes. More than welcome!! :)).
I started learning Python one day, after a chat session with my Tutor Lee Danskin at escape studios, advised me to learn Python. I was at the time starting to learn MEL (Maya Embed Language) and i so excited with it. Lee Danskin said that MEL is great but Python or Pymel is the way to go. That and some Linux skills.
