Use MEL to specify directory for File Dialog
I am working on a animation short with a group of about 8 people and we have an area where all the master files are stored. I want to keep my project directory in my home area, but I often want to open files in directories in the shared area. Maya provides no way of bookmarking this that I could find. I thought maybe MEL would offer a solution, but there seems to be no way to specify a directory for the "OpenScene" command.
BTW, I am on a linux machine.
