Slider Controls?
show user profile  Hauksbee
I am building a small anthropomorphic robot. Is it possible, in Max 7, to make a slider control to open and close the hands?

It can indeed be done.

I Googled "max use slider to animate" and found several videos and pages that might help.

Oh man, I've not done sliders and controllers n'shit for yyeeeaaaarrrs, but if memory serves I would use both "Wire Parameters" and whatever the fuck the "Attribute Holder" is.

I think attribute holder is for when you want to make your own menu items when selecting an object? And wire parameters are just things that can say "when I do X, do Y to something else", so you could hook it to a menu item from the attribute holder, or an actual UI in the max viewport with splines n'shit.

I kinda miss all of that.

My language is atrocious, sorry about that. I got excited.

Ha! I've got a friend like that. Never give him a surprise or good news on public transport or near children because he goes into a dialect that would make sailors blush.
