pcitydesignScripting/ Programming HELP!!!

Hi everyone!

I am an intermediate 3D user and I currently work with Cinema 4D & Maya. I started off with C4D and recently began using Maya for more complex things that my job title requires. I've found a large amount of training for modelling, texturing, dynamics and things like that. One problem I do have is my scripting/ programming knowledge is extremely low. I like to use both apps, so I need to become familiar with both C.O.F.F.E.E & Xpresso (C4D) as well as MEL (Maya) for advanced projects. Im not sure exactly what languages are required to get an overall grasp of these functions. I am completely self taught up until this point, and have done very well for my self thus far. So I guess my question is, What languages do I need to learn to familiarize myself with the scripting/ programming for these 3D packages?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance (this has been driving me crazy for months!)

I'm not at all familiar with scripting, unfortunately, but as far as Cinema goes, I believe that COFFEE is a standalone language. You might want to check out this site for more help:

COFFEE is a language on its own, however it resembles java (script) a lot, the difference is that it only works with pointers instead of references only as in java. The syntax is however like javascript and C. There is no real comparison as it
