Autodesk Maya MathNode – get Python expression in the Maya DG!

General Usage Instructions

The MathNode shelve button creates a new Math node in the Maya DG and selects it. Expression: An expression can be as simple as 'b - 0.5 * c * a' or more complex with conditional statement like '(b - 0.5 * c * a) if b - 0.5 * c * a >= 0 else 0' (in this last example, the formula calculates the Y position of a ball falling until the sphere hits the floor at Y=0). Input attributes: The (a, b, c) input attributes can either be set as a static keyable value, or connected using the 'Connection Editor'. Output attribute: The 'result' output attribute will contain the expression result and can be connected to other Maya nodes using the 'Connection Editor'. MathNode attributes are keyable. You can get/set MathNode' attributes using MEL or Python.
