Hello fellow MEL'rs

I'm in the process of writing a Matte painting projection aid script for maya. So far its coming along great EXCEPT for this..

AEinvokeFitRezGate ($projCamIP + ".sizeX") ($projCamIP + ".sizeY");

AEinvokeFitRezGate is a command that is run when a user clicks the "fit to resolution gate" under the image plane node.

Everytime I run my script the first time it gives me a error saying that AEinvokeFitRezGate procedure not found. I think re-run the script and it works like a charm.

I can't find any documentation on this procedure and dont have access to the scripts directory (damn school).

Maybe there's a work around for this? When I load in the image, the image placement sizeX = 1, sizeY = 1. When I click fit to resolution gate, it changes sizeX to 1.417 and sizeY to .847. Any idea on how it calculates this? The renderglobals is set to 800 x 478 as well.

Any help will be awesome!

the AEinvokeFitRezGate came from AEimagePlaneTemplate.mel. So just add "source AEimagePlaneTemplate.mel" before calling that function, and it'll be ok.
For this kind of wrapper function, whatIs command is terribly useful.
`whatIs AEinvokeFitRezGate` will tell you where this command/function comes from,but you'll need to have it sourced first by yourself or by maya (i.e by creating an image plane through hypershade and opening attribute editor , maya will source the AEimagePlaneTemplate.mel )
