Thesis Ideas

I wanted to ping everyone out there to see if there was any advice regarding a Computer Science Master's thesis using Maya Embedded Language (MEL)? I'm open to anything and really would only like to have MEL as the central theme to my thesis. Any ideas/suggestions?

I think you should be asking yourself the same question.

I think it's more important to figure out what you want to say and then figure out how to use MEL in the process.

What interests you?
What do you find entertaining?
Is there any statement or feelings you feel the need to get out there?
Is there any experience you want relate to others?

The best thing to do is to not even think about the MEL aspect and only think about the concept because the MEL element is going to cause you to second guess every idea you come up with. Once you have something to say then worry about the MEL. MEL in itself isn't going to hold a viewer's attention but a good story will.

Well said Ed.

I agree

I just settled on my masters thesis where my central focus is motion capture and AI. From that concept I then sat down and decided which tools I would be using and it turned out to be C++/openGL and MEL/python. Good luck on your defense.
