Yes!

And please let the tut be cool. Making a window is easy. Making a window with complex formatting is PITA.

i'm trying to work out where to gauge it at the moment, I mean I don't want to shoot off into procedures and looping, if people have never opened up maya before, although I don't want to make it super boring. I could start simple, then get more complex.

Suggestions for a format or style you'd like to see.

windows, layouts, commands, functionality.

Sure thing man!
Cant wait anymore once you mentioned it.

I know a total beginner thing might be to hard, as people will have to know how to make mel scripts already.

Maybe intermediate to making cool windows then. I'll have to design a window with lots of controls in to show how to use them all, I take it for functionality you want the populating, querying, editing controls etc. Are we going all out and having script jobs, or not yet? I made a UI which I was going to use as a demo reel piece which I think is kind of cool, but don't know how "TECHIE" to make the video.

I guess you just listen your inner voice. Fact is, everyone should do his homework..and if he doesnt know where the script editor is. Chanches are that for most folks it will be boring. I am not trying to speak for some group of folks but I just think that there is stuff what some just pick up on the fly. And if they got questions and if they're interested they always know where to find the answer(manual of course)
Good point MunCHeR, cross platform all the way. Really sorry to see some kids left without fun cuz of that. Hehe sure I know it pretty well as I have experienced it first hand. Very exciting indeed.

great idea, i know that many of you know mel quite good, i don't, so it would be nice to make sth not very difficult just for start

This sounds great

I would say a intermediate level from start to finish would be appro

I'd say most people are familiar with MEL , but don't know how to make it work for them

and those that are really adv. don't really need a lesson....... I'm guessing


p.s. those not knowing anything about it, may indicate that there are some other things they should tackle before diving in to GUI editors
