plugin development

Does anyone know of a well collected resource for maya plugin development, which has source code (and maybe VC++ project files?) I can find all the MEL a man would desire, but plugin code is scarce...

you asked for a "well collected resource for maya plugin development" which may be a tall order... so! since no one else has replied, let me chime in with this:

i bought david's book "complete maya programming" and it comes with several complete (source, project files) sample plug-ins.

i had a fun time getting things to compile on my mac (but i eventually did).

compiling things on a PC should be *a lot* easier and the above might be a good place for you to start.

I have the same problem. I am looking for examples of simple fire/smoke plugins (or similar) and their source. just to get an idea how those things are put together. So if anyone knows any resources...?????

Meanwhile David Gould's book will do you well..

Sounds good. I will go to my nearest Barnes and Nobles and check the book out.
