Scripting and API

Create Maya scripts and write plug-ins in Maya Embedded Language (MEL) or Python scripting language to increase efficiency, customise 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.
