Welcome to this tutorial designed to get you up to speed with MEL scripting. We'll start by learning basic MEL syntax for printing code for command responses and running Maya commands. We'll then learn how to create variables, and work with various types and concatenations. We'll even learn how to create arrays, 'for' loops, and windows so that we can get comfortable with building tools of our own that we, and other artists can utilize to be more efficient inside of Maya. By the end of this tutorial, you will have the foundation you need to work comfortably with MEL. Software required: Autodesk Maya 2014.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi, I'm Delano with Digital Tutors, an Autodesk authorized training provider. And I'd like to welcome you to this course that's designed to get you up to speed with MEL scripting. MEL is Maya's native scripting language. And it can help us work efficiently in Maya once we understand how to use it. And that's the goal of this course, to gain a solid foundation of learning how to script in MEL so we can use it to be more productive. We'll start by learning basic MEL syntax for printing code for command responses and running my commands. We'll then learn how to create variables, work with various types, and concatenations. We'll even learn how to create arrays, for loops, and windows so that we can get comfortable with building tools of our own that we and other artists can utilize to be more efficient inside of Maya. By the end of this course, you'll have the foundation you need to work comfortably with MEL. So let's get started.
