Python for Maya: Overview

Did you ever sat in front of Maya and thought: "I did that 1.000.000 times before!"?! ๐Ÿ˜ญ Automate your processes and let Python do the "boring stuff"!

What is the Python for Maya masterclass?

The focus of this masterclass is to teach Python beginners how to use Python in Maya to automate daily processes. You will learn the fundamentals of scripting in Python from scratch, how to use Python to manipulate your environment and finally to automate and simplify processes in Maya.

After this masterclass you are able to

โœ… Create impactful Maya scripts using Python

โœ… Generate and manipulate scenes in Maya

โœ… Connect assets with shaders, textures, build groups and hierarchies

โœ… Save, load and import and export scenes

โœ… Use Python and MEL

โœ… Automate the "boring stuff" and support your project

What's inside?

The masterclass is a 8 weeks cohort which focuses on teaching you the fundamentals of scripting, lets you practice the newly learned topics weekly, gives you personal feedback, allows you to ask questions in the Q&As and be part of a community with other learners.

To achieve our goal we focus the first 5 weeks on Python itself: What are data types? How to loop through and change items? How to use code from multiple files? are some of the questions we will ask and answer. After these first 5 weeks you will understand how the scripting process works while writing your own helpful Python scripts.

In the final 3 weeks we move over to Maya and learn how to access the Maya API using Python. How can we use Python to access and manipulate the specific elements in Maya? Answering this question allows us to write impactful scripts, build complete scenes from scratch, manipulate the scene, reconnect nodes and automate repetitive processes.

The Python for Maya is an 8 weeks masterclass which includes

  • ๐Ÿ–ฅ๏ธ Create your own Maya Applications

  • ๐Ÿ“ผ 9 hours video training

  • ๐Ÿ™‹ 8 hours Live Q&A

  • ๐Ÿ“ Weekly assignments

  • ๐Ÿ‘ Personal code feedback
