This week I’ve got a great episode that goes into how you can create floating dialog windows for your MaxScripts. I’ll even go into how you can create a “Random Selection” utility in MaxScript. Hope you enjoy it!
MaxScript Basics – Learn How to Automate the Creation and Manipulation of Objects Using MaxScript Within 3DS Max
I’ll be showing you how to do some basic automation in 3dsMax’s MaxScript scripting language. It’s a lot easier than you think and can give you a real edge! We’ll be looking at how you can manipulate some cubes using simple MaxScript operations, and I’ll show you how to use the Macro Recorder to automate almost any process in 3dsMax.
I created this tutorial after reading “How do I animate a pin art desk toy” in issue 106 of 3D World. It also reminded me of the really cool video for Nine Inch Nails’ “Only”. However the tutorial was setup in Maya, so I decided to take a crack at it in 3ds Max. This tutorial was the inspiration for the other two Pin Art Tutorials on this site. As I state later in the tutorial, this can be setup with any B/W image or video clip. I am just using a procedural texture to make things easier.
