Scripting and API

Create Maya scripts and write plug-ins in Maya Embedded Language (MEL) or Python scripting language to increase efficiency, customize features, and differentiate your work. Maya plug-ins and stand-alone applications can run from the Maya command line in C++, Python, or .NET languages.

  • Develop new types of Maya objects: file translators, hardware shaders, and surface shapes.
  • Create interface components for proprietary tools with Qt Designer or Pyside, and load them directly into Maya.
