I'm new to Maya API and I'd be thankful for some piece of advice.
I used to script using MEL and in further work it appears that I'll need more complex custom window with my own UI elements.
I have started to get to know with Maya API specification and OpenGL and as far, as I understood:
-In maya API I can only create windows and UI elements using MEL commands or Qt libraries
My questions is:
Do I really need to buy Qt commercial license (plugin will be used by a company in which I work) or is there another way to go with my problem?
I have created simple window by executing MEL commands in code:
DeclareSimpleCommand( ApiWindow, "", "2011");
MStatus ApiWindow::doIt( const MArgList& args )
MStatus stat = MS::kSuccess;
setResult( "ApiWindow command executed!\n" );
So, is it possible to achieve the same thing without MEL and Qt?
