Dub's Maxscript Tutorial Index

Try this:
for s in $Sphere* do
unhide s
render vfb:false outputFile:("E:/Practice/MaxScript/render_" + + ".jpg")
hide s

In your script you specify the frame to render but you're not rendering an animation. Hence the files are not automatically numbered.
I used the sphere's name to get a unique name.

MaxScripting is so much fun. though if one gets stuck, it becomes irritated :)

You're welcome.

"MaxScripting is so much fun. though if one gets stuck, it becomes irritated :) "

When Dub releases his tutorial about using the reference, that'll get a lot of people started.

>though if one gets stuck, it becomes irritating

That's programming in general. Writing code isn't so hard. Figuring out why it doesn't do what you want it to can be much harder. When you get stuck, use a process of elimination to isolate the problem to its root cause.

Yep Garp .... i am eagerly waiting for that tutorial. I too didn't get much of MaxScript reference stuff.

Advance..... yeah thats true.
i use commands like Print , messageBox for debugging.... these helps a lot.

NEED HELP==> Hi, i am kinda new to 3ds max and I m currently working on to animate the movement of a pipe. Well, I have made the pipe by creating a cylinder then key in the position of the points(450 points) using the ffd method which I dun think is very effective. The problem now is that I have the coordinates in excel file and I wonder if there is a way for me to translate the points into max? I still need to animate a few more movement of the pipe and i would appreciate if i dun not have to key in the coordinate manually because it is taking like forever...thanks!!!!

Just thought I'd share a little macro I made for removing all wire connections of all selected objects :)

macroScript DeWirer category:"Tools" toolTip:"De-Wirer"


function DeepSub TopLevel =
if TopLevel.numSubs > 0 then
for i = 1 to TopLevel.numSubs do
DeepSub TopLevel[i]
if classOf TopLevel.controller == Float_Wire then
paramWire.disconnect TopLevel.controller

if selection.count > 0 then
for i in selection do
DeepSub i

if i.material != undefined then
DeepSub i.material

messageBox "No object selected." title:"Error"

I'm sure there's a better or more elegant way to do this (I'm looking at you, Garp...), but hopefully somebody will find this helpful.

This code looks perfectly elegant to me.
Only way to make it simpler would require a built-in unwire() method.
Well done, Mr.Burns :)
