Custom 'Attributes'
show user profile  jpedleham
Hi, in the same way you can define things like a tail in a biped with a simple checkbox, can you create your own systems similar to that for any max object?
Id like to be able to bring in an object and using a checkbox, define a specific piece height as one height or another as well as hide or unhide a mesh within the object depending on whether or not a checkbox was ticked. Is this possible?
Thanks
Jack

Ok so ive figured out the attributes and how to set them im just stuck on the parameter wiring.
Id like to set a checkbox that when ticked will increase a morph target to 100 and when its unchecked will set it back to 0. But i cant figure out the expression. Can anyone help me out?

I think your looking for something like this? Sometimes you have to use a bit of maxscript to get what you want. You can also change the morpher modifier spinner via maxscript using command: "WM3_MC_SetValue $.modifiers[1] 1 100.0" should want to use a slider/spinner for this effect rather than a check-box.

Happy rigging
