Python for Production

Python for production


Every show or project needs automation of tedious tasks, whether it’s as mundane as creating the correct delivery folder structure, or as surreal as building fractal backgrounds for Dr Strange. This two-part, Python for Production 1 & 2 class takes you through basic to more creative levels of understanding of how this powerful scripting tool is changing production for all genres of entertainment!

This course offers a practical introduction to scripting for those who are new to coding. Instead of learning via (lame) command-line guessing games and the like, from the first class we’ll be creating useful scripts for automating tasks in Nuke and Maya. All using the powerful and ubiquitous Python programming language.

You’ll learn how to build sophisticated code by leveraging other people’s code libraries. As a bonus, we’ll look at how to use your new-found programming skills to create an IOT (Internet Of Things) wireless device to rotate selected objects in Maya using physical dials for X, Y, and Z rotation.
