Maxscript - Boolean
show user profile  donvella
Hey guys, just finishing a quick script I need to run however I'm stuck on one last piece - any help would be greatly appreciated

I want to edit the Corona Conversion script so I can have it override proxy if it already exists in that location, but I don't know how to enable Boolean function.

Proxy Converter:
< CoronaProxyConverter >.convertProxies() [location:< string >] [overwrite:< Boolean > ]

Currently I have:
CoronaProxyConverter.convertProxies() true

This works, but I want to add overwrite so it does not ask if it already exists - just overwrites the proxy

small success, no cigar...

I want to supress this dialogue...
Corona Proxy Export
One or more CoronaProxy files do already exist on Disk, do you want to overwrite them?

(If you press "No", the existing files will be used for the generated Proxies)
Yes No

This is what the maxscript tells me...
CoronaProxyConverter.convertProxies() "overwrite:true"
Generated CoronaProxy: X:\Proxies\AG11_4.cgeo
(interval 0f 100f)

It looks all blue and no errors woo! but still get the dialogue box that I have to confirm every time :S

Does anyone know where I can find the script function/parameter cheat sheet? Im happy to brute force my way through but I dont see how people find the information they are looking for if you cant access it through the MacroRecorder?

I want to know all Corona commands and tinker around with them in maxscript however I cannot find anything - how do people making plugins/additions do this without the source?

This is all I could find

I'm not sure I understand what you're asking. Are you looking for the inspector functions (showProperties, showInterface, etc)?

Im basically looking for the documentation reference/wiki where it lists all corona specific commands such as;

CoronaRenderer.CoronaFp.showVfb true

this was on the website I linked above and works - I can load that function from within the render settings. But... what about things such in VFB such as tonemapping/lightmix? I want to know how to write a small script to load a tonemapping settings .conf or lightmix .conf file - but there is less than 20 functions listed - surely there is more?

Sorry I can't help since I don't know a thing about corona.
Don't they provide a full documentation for their mxs api? Or a forum where the devs show up?

thanks Garp, I appreciate your time.,15441.0.html

This is the thread I have started over at Corona, Im also speaking to John Martini about Vexus (which is why I want the Corona references) and hopefully iron out some things in regards to render management. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

On that link above I have pasted the maxscript listener code for my thousand attempts at adding 1 renderelement lol.

I just want to add 1 renderelement, once I understand this i think it will help me read the documentation better

Sorry about sending you to another site - I tried pasting the code in here and it failed on reply :S
