  3. 3. Introduction ● ● ● ● ● [1]
  4. 4. What is MEL? [2]
  5. 5. Maya Api - Python C++ Application Programming Interface - The most flexible way to add features to Maya - Execute substantially faster than MEL - Must be compiled for new versions of Maya and for each different platform Python API - Wrappers for many classes in the Maya C++ API - Manipulate Maya API objects in ordinary scripts
  6. 6. Python v.s. MEL Python MEL Python is used by all kinds of software developers and with many types of applications More advanced scripting language and it can communicate with both Maya Command Engine and the C++ API Python can call MEL scripts Python handles complex data more gracefully (object-oriented) Can access files and system data much faster MEL has a very small userbase compared to Python because almost only Maya developers use MEL If you have tools done in MEL there is no reason to convert them into Python MEL can call Python scripts Try to imitate complex data structures
