So thank you for the replay Theodox. I must say it was very enlightening for me!
I think I will be able to learn mel better as I am getting a better understanding of each section impact on a scene.
As for python I have been wanting to learn it for some time now but I wanted to learn maya first so I kinda fell on mel as it seemed pretty straightforward, but I will be surely more motivated to learn python with Maya too. I have been looking at their differences now and I think I can see why python has a bigger impact, thank you for bringing it to my attention.
Gonna do some mel experimentations now
