sceneReport script question

Hi All:

I am trying to use the sceneReport mel script from Mel Companion:Maya Scripting for 3D Artists book and am totally confused. I run the script(the final one) and it prompts me to select a scene file which I do where upon it converts the file-without any warning to a small file and does not return an html file which I thought was the point....

Any help out there...or if David Stripinis is around could he please respond...I can really use this right now!!!

Wow. Looks like a paragraph went missing from pg 424. gotta have that errata'd

Because there is no built in facility to create a file using a file dialog, you need to point to a pre-existing file. the easy way to do this in windows or Mac is to right-click and go "new-Text document" and rename it to an html.

I just tried it out with the cd version of the script and it worked here.

Let me know if you have any more questions

Still Not Working

Thanks for the reply David!

I am doing as you suggested and my work procedure is as follows

1-I open up the maya file-filenamexxx I want a scene report of

2-I type in sceneReport

3-Open file window pops up whereupon I select filenamexxx.html

4-Maya freezes and nothing is created in filenamexxx.html

I am using maya5.0.1 on a network..windows2000

Any ideas?

ps-if you select a maya file...which is what I thought originally I was supposed converts the file -in my case from 11 mb to 538k...tried to save as html and open but kept opening up in maya...You should warn users about that I think ?
