MEL Scripting for Maya Animators

Mark R. Wilkins and Chris Kazmier

Scripts (Updated March 23, 2003)

These compressed archives contain the scripts used in the book.  When a script file is named Chapter<number>.mel, you should work through the example in the chapter using the .mel file as reference only.
The other scripts can be executed in full using the Script Editor's "Source Script..." command, though you may have to work through certain steps prior to executing the scripts to see what's depicted in the chapters.

These scripts include all of the corrections made in the errata listed below. MSMA_scripts.tar.gz

Example Scene Files

These compressed archives contain all of the scene files required for the examples in Chapter 16, Chapter 17, and Chapter 19. MSMA_example_scenes.tar.gz
Note:  Users of Maya 3.0 or 3.5 should use instead of mrBlah.mb for the character rigging examples in Chapter 19 © 2002-2020, Mark R. Wilkins
