Hi Herman,

I never had to learn vex because I already knew Renderman Shading 
language (rsl). You have more chance to find learning material in RSL. 
Only a few function names or parameter order are different but at this 
point is just a matter of looking at the vex functions help page and 
figure out how to call your vex function instead of the rsl. This is a 
good start.


However if you just want to make things happen, you don't have to learn 
vex. Instead just use Vop. Once in a while you'll want to use an Inline 
Sop (a node that allows you to introduce a piece of code inside your 
node based network of functions). You can actually learn from the code 
generated by vex if you right click on a Vop Sop for example and click 
on View Vex Code.

Good luck.
