View Full Version : Where do you start?

Right, I have a programming background, and I'm thinking I could put it to good use by incorporating it with my graphics.. So, the next logical step is to start playing around with MEL a little.

However, I find it slightly daunting, and I'm wondering how you guys got to grips with it? I mean there are lot of examples of MEL scripts of course, I'm just wondering if there are any tutorials or anything on the basics.

Seriously, Brian Ewert's tutorials are a good place to start as well.

Buying a book would have to wait until next month however, although the table of contents of yours looks a'ight.
