MEL Scripting a Character Rig in Maya



With MEL Scripting a Character Rig in Maya, you’ll learn how you can build custom character rigs in a matter of seconds, as opposed to days or weeks.

In this detailed guide, you’ll learn:

• The techniques used to build a complex character rig in the software interface, followed by instructions for writing the equivalent MEL code for scripting the entire process.

• Fundamental concepts of creating animation controls in Maya, from the basics of creating, editing, and binding skeletons, to more complex rigs with controls that employ spline IK and channel connections.

• Important coding techniques such as using conditional statements, loops, variables, and procedures.

• How to create a character animation GUI (Graphical User Interface) that makes animating the character easy and fast.

• Important skills for building rigs using numerous hands-on exercises, all code examples and Maya files available on the companion Web site.
