In the last three years, the pace of updates to Maya has accelerated. New features seem to appear every few months. However, the foundation of Maya, consisting of MEL and the dependency graph, remains largely unchanged. This second edition serves to bring MEL Scripting for Maya Animators up to date with the interface changes that have taken place between Maya 4.5, with which the first edition was written, and Maya 6. Certain regrettable omissions, such as a chapter on formLayout, have been corrected. Known errors have been fixed. Also, new chapters on utility nodes and Maya’s Web Panel feature provide some new ideas for how to use MEL in one’s applications. More than anything else, feedback from people who have used the book to learn or teach MEL has spurred us on. To the contributors of these thoughts and perspectives, thank you! Mark R. Wilkins is a technical director at DreamWorks Animation SKG, where he helped develop a production pipeline using Maya for effects and character

The ancient Maya city of Quirigua occupied a crossroads between Copan in the southeastern Maya highlands and the major centers of the Peten heartland. Though always a relatively small city, Quirigua stands out because of its public monuments, which were some of the greatest achievements of Classic Maya civilization. Impressive not only for their colossal size, high sculptural quality, and eloquent hieroglyphic texts, the sculptures of Quirigua are also one of the few complete, in situ series of Maya monuments anywhere, which makes them a crucial source of information about ancient Maya spirituality and political practice within a specific historical context.
