Python + Maya Experimentation mk1



This is my first attemt at cracking python script within Maya. I found that in order to render animations, I had to write a MEL script which ran the python script and then fired up the renderer on each frame. If the normal batch renderer is used, it doesnt run the script on each frame and so you just get the same scene rendering a few hundred times.
