For all the maya scripting grandpas: For when you import files and want to know whats new: There is actually a ! In former times (<v9) you had to code that all by yourself.. So there definetely wasn’t everything better! There^ you got it!
I just chatted about that with Nathan:
13:02: but when importing.. yea a success statement would be nice
13:02: or an array of imported objects!
13:03: THAT would be good
13:03: now that would be very good!
13:03: I had to write a function to do that
13:03: yea me too!
That was actually about me finding a candidate for more Maya stupidness: . That is you put something into it and it gives you back the same… bollocks.
(it fails somehow as there are lots of other commands that do it similar. But here it doesn’t even work! And there is no way of importing without a given filename. Contrary to creating a control for instance.)
