Python itself, as a generic scripting language, is very powerful and easy to use. MotionBuilder gives the Python user access to hundreds of new classes specifically coded to control MotionBuilder elements.
The included documentation and sample scripts for Python in MotionBuilder are sparse, and many users cannot overcome the initial challenges of putting a script together. This course aims to illuminate the pitfalls and provide examples and sample code to enable users to write their own scripts tailored to their own workflow. This book shows you how to:
* Create objects
* Rename objects
* Transform objects
* Plot animation
* Do rigging
* Clean up
