Default MEL Scripting for Maya Animators -- GET IT!!!

Just got my copy of Mark's book today. OMG, this rocks! I'm going to have to be careful that MEL doesn't take over my life. Nice job, Mark!

I went to the book store, and saw that book... but then i felt really intimidated for some reason. What skill level is that book for?

Beginner to intermediate (with the caveat that it helps if you know how to work with Maya without scripting.) Don't be intimidated. There are parts that you may find a little challenging, but most of it is pretty accessible and it takes the time to *explain* stuff. The preface suggests where you might start depending on your skill level and your interests.

BTW, you saw it in a bookstore? Which one? I haven't been able to find one that carries it!

I saw (and bought it) in Borders - I was really impressed with their CG section in general - a lot of books that I didn't expect to be able to buy anywhere other than online....
