Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This book shows readers how MEL is being used in high-end visual effects production by picking apart scripts written in the production of recent Hollywood blockbusters. The focus of the book is to illustrate how MEL is being used in feature film production

Synopsis:

Mayaa (TM)s Embedded Language is the heart and soul of Maya, the most powerful 3D application on the market today. MEL provides Maya with a versatility and adaptability unmatched in the CG industry. It is MEL that allows technical directors to customize Maya to fit each pipeline, to work around each limitation, and to write tools that expand Mayaa (TM)s already impressive set of capabilities. Mastery of MEL is as essential to a TD as a scalpel is to a surgeon. This book shows you how MEL is being (ab)used in high-end visual effects production by picking apart scripts written in the production of recent feature films. The exhaustive and in-depth nature of this book makes it useful for a broad audience: from the MEL novice who wants to learn MEL to the advanced scripter interested in developing strategies for production problems. A good book covering difficult topics with gentle hand holding and good humour. -Gary Noden, 3D World Magazine Click here to read the full review from 3D World Magazine
