Hello, im new in Maya Mel programming.
I have a question that i have not found the answer after wandering around.
Let say i have a lot of object, each has it’s own material with different names and types(lambert, phong, redshift)
i need to select some of the object and get only the lambert materials
i’ve tried some code from this forum like:
string $shaders = stringArrayRemoveDuplicates(ls("-mat" ,listConnections(listConnections("-type","shadingEngine",`ls -sl -o -dag -s`)))); print $shaders;
but, the problem with this code is that, it includes all the material type (lambert, phong) from the selection(i only need the lambert type).
what im looking for is a code like this but only from my selection of objects;:
string $shaders = `ls -type "lambert"`; print $shaders;
(above code get all the lambert material from the scene)
i dont know how to filter it based on my selection, so can u guys help me?
