Introduction to MetaData with CG Monks

By Josh Burton

An introduction to building your own metadata tools on a foundation of red9’s superb libraries by CG Monks.

Note – “Introduction to MetaData” is a prerequisite course for Morpheus Rig seminars



  • Basic python


  • Maya 2011 or later (note – different maya versions have their own bugs and issues and may introduce new puzzles to solve)
  • Some sort of Python IDE is recommended. I use Wing but any will do. The script editor just isn’t a great place to do a lot of coding.

Course Topics

  • Red9’s MetaClass and Meta Data overview
  • Coding Setup
  • Overview of CG Monks implementation of that as a framework for your own expansion
  • Concepts to Learn
  • Making your own MetaClass subClass
