Commands in Python

The Ziva VFX Utilities are a set of open-source python tools for manipulating Ziva VFX scenes. The primary zBuilder project can save, load, recreate, and manipulate a creature rig. These utilities are included with Ziva VFX, in the scripts directory of the Maya Module, and the documentation is separately available locally or online. The latest version of the project is available online, where contributions are welcome.

The Ziva MEL commands do not have python analogs, but they can be easily accessed by importing MEL. For example:

import maya.mel
maya.mel.eval("ziva -s")
