From the Publisher"Reading and following the lessons of this book provides one of the best ways for a casual Maya user to elevate their skills to a professional level. The fundamental techniques developed in MEL Scripting for Maya Animators are critical for visual effects artists to learn."
— Scott Stokdyk, Visual Effects Supervisor, Sony Pictures Imageworks
"While the first edition opened the doors to MEL scripting for interested Maya users, this expanded and updated second edition delves deeper into important programming concepts, and new features in Maya released since the original edition."
— Doug Cooper, Visual Effects Supervisor, DreamWorks Animation
"The book is well written for both technical and non-technical animators. It is an essential tool in making sophisticated animation not only possible but also practical."
— Henry LaBounta, Senior Art Director, Electronic Arts
"This new edition is the very best of an extremely small number of books that even attempt to cover the subject of scripting animation. If you’re just getting started or are advanced enough to want the second edition's beefed up content, there's an empty spot for this book next to your monitor right now."
