I am relatively experienced in programming, I have worked with Basic, QuickBasic, Assembly Language, Visual Basic and C, most self-taught, then I started MEL.
With MEL, I decided I wanted to learn it because I saw the amount of time people were putting into just making a character walk was huge, and I was certain I could find a way to short-cut the process, so that was where I got the idea for the Walkerman program I wrote.

That program has some really interesting methods in it. Some of the methods I found through research, on the web or the MEL library, or, I created it myself. Probably the most innovative was a routine that searches for an individual joint - attribute combination, and then changes the code for it, all via MEL.

Maybe I'll post some of those methods as MEL tutorials for this forum . . .

That would be awesome. It would be great to learn from your skills in programming.

I am ready to learn!
