I am trying to develop a script that will allow me and my studio to change projects quickly and easily. However the catch is that with each project, the image file directory changes. So I can’t just change the project directory. We don’t use Maya’s custom file directory system because of our pipeline. After looking through all of the MEL and Python documentation, I’ve only found a MEL function that will allow you to change the project directory. I want to change the IMAGES directory directly. I really don’t need to change the project directory settings. Our pipeline is to type in the absolute path for the images directory. I want to simplify this process by making a script. So I guess my question is, how do I change the Images directory for a project, using MEL/Python script? I’m able to code everything else. It would surprise me if Autodesk left out a function of that sort in Maya 2011. Any and all help is much appreciated.
I was wondering if you could help me. I am starting a personal short film and I need to set up all the shots, there are about 80 of them. I don't want to go thru Project/New/ and then use the defaults or type in what I want, that would take forever, and honestly, I would like to learn how it's done. I was trying to use the echo commands from the script editor, and try and script it out, but they is very little info given there. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
