Python scripting coming in 3ds Max 2014 Extension

Autodesk has announced an Extension for 3ds Max 2014 that includes support for point clouds, Python scripting & stereo cameras. Of particular interest to many of you on ScriptSpot - here's a blurb about Python support from the announcement:

"If you are a technical director or a developer, new support for the popular and easy-to-learn Python® scripting language can help you extend and customize Autodesk® 3ds Max® 2014 software, and more easily integrate it into a Python-based pipeline. You can execute Python scripts from MAXScript and the 3ds Max command line; in addition, you can access a subset of the 3ds Max API (application programming interface) from Python scripts, including the ability to evaluate MAXScript code."

The Extension is expected to be available in the fall - on or after September 30, 2013. Read more at the AREA - http://area.autodesk.com/products/features/extension3dsmax
