Hello,

I am trying to find some resources that will help me with a projet I am working on. I am trying to learn facial modeling and animation from a book that focuses primarily on Maya and MEL scripts. The only catch is that I am pretty dedicated to using Blender. Since I have not ever worked with Maya directly I am having trouble taking the tutorials and MEL scripts and translating them into something I can use in Blender, I am reaching out for some help. Does anyone know of some good resources I can utilize as I figure out how to make this project a reality?

Thanks.

But aside form that even more importantly you need to understand the ndoes in question tahts defined HERE:

Simply because maya is about the nodes, and mel is nothing without them. Its just operating on those (the code does not make sense without nodes).
