maya Tutorial

This documentation covers coding for Autodesk Maya. It’s not meant for end-users of the Maya software. (To find out how to model or animate in Maya, try Autodesk’s introductory videos or an end-user site like CGSociety.)

Languages

Maya supports 3 programming languages: MEL, its built-in scripting language; C++, which is used for plugins; and Python which is common for integration jobs but can also create plugins using a wrapped version of the C++ API
