Maya 2020 fundamentals - modelling the real world
Get halfway through a model and find it's an unworkable mess? Can't add edge loops where you need them? Can't subdivide a mesh properly? If any of this sounds familiar check this course out.

load pre-made script

Hi. I need to load a free script that I have downloaded. Normally I would load the mel file into the script editor, highlight the entire thing, and save it as a button onto the shelf. With this particular script I get a button, but it doesn't do anything. The instructions for the script say:

It is a mel script only, therefore just copy it in the desired script location, source AxCrack.mel and run AxCrack.

I dont really understand this. Do I need to load the script in a different way? Any help much appreciated!

Some scripts will need to be executed manually.

Type AxCrack(); into your script editor and run that.

Imagination is more important than knowledge.

Do I need to put the script file somewhere special?
