So, I am a mature student. Worked as a modeler and animator in the past. Almost completed a two-year game-programming course.
My final project is supposed to be an animation-export plugin.
Problem is, I’ve never worked with Mel, nor Python , in Maya before.
The documents seem to say “This is how to make a python plugin for a new mel-command to print Hello World”… NOW GO BUILD ROME!
But I keep running into issues whereby, half the OpenMaya commands I want to use are in different versions of the API! And something useful simply doesn’t exist in one version or another!
What language/version do I use and how do I even know, when looking at the docs, that I am researching the correct one?!
