quick select set by "type" quick tip

Was just discussing how to quickly get a set of all your lights in a scene and thought I'd try some fast mel code, and low and behold it worked.. 
 super easy and fast and works great. 

this is one for  "meshes" :

 sets -name "meshes" `ls -type "mesh"` ;

oh and in python it looks like this

import maya.cmds

maya.cmds.sets("mesh") ,name="meshes")

Customizing Maya 2016

Just a look into how I customize Maya. With the new Maya 2016 out, I decided to try and reboot some of my tutorials.  This is just an overview. as the 1 hour long "how to" is brutal.

Seton "Welcome to Humancare"

This was an interesting project for Seton Hospital in that it was all done in 3D with Maya.  so the shadows and cuts in the paper are all 3D rendered.   It created some interesting challenges to get the animation of paper to look right.
