Querying Render Setup in Maya 2017

It seems Autodesk did not create a Render Setup documentation. This is me collecting code snippets and exploring Python functions.


Vendoring Qt.py

How do you know a user doesn’t have the wrong version of Qt.py when running your application?
– Simple, you bundle Qt.py with your application. Here’s a short write-up on how you could go about doing just that.


My Visual Studio Code setup

This is my Visual Studio Code (vscode) setup, with ambitions to create a custom Python IDE.

Docker cleanup

Quick and easy way to remove all containers (and their volumes) as well as all images:

# Remove containers and their volumes
docker stop $(docker ps -a -q)
docker rm -v $(docker ps -a -q)

# Remove images
docker rmi -f $(docker images -q)

ffmpeg and Homebrew

Quick note on how to install ffmpeg (using Homebrew) for mp4 format converisons.
