Call for Python tutorials

866 votes

I've been seeing a lot of discussion about using Python with 3ds Max for quite a while now... I'd love to get some resources up describing Python - 3ds Max integration / workflow / processes. If you've got or would write a beginner tutorial or even an advanced tutorial, please share it with the community!

Some questions to get the ball rolling... What is Python? How does it compare to MAXScript? Why should someone use Python? Is Python best for end users or developers? How do you create a simple "hello world" Python script?

10 Year Anniversary Celebration

10 years... What a ride! During the past decade artists & developers - people just like yourself - have come to this site to find tools that will make their lives easier. I've been honored to get to know many of you, to learn from your techniques and see thousands of artists find the tool they needed. I think one of the things that has amazed me the most over the years is how cross cultural ScriptSpot has become. This isn't just a site that people in Hollywood use, or for that matter a site that people in North America use.

SoulburnScripts Updated Sept 18th 2008

20 votes

NOTICE: I had to make some major changes to sLib to remove several recursion bugs that could cause max to crash. I've successfully removed the bugs, but it's possible I may have introduced new ones, despite a lot of testing to make sure all of the functions still work correctly. If you see any weirdness where scripts you know worked aren't working as expected anymore, please get in touch with me immediately. Thanks.

Updated several older scripts, here's the major updates:

MCG support added!

6 votes

Calling all MCG developers! ScriptSpot now features an MCG section where you can share & find procedural MCG tools. This is an incredibly exciting feature of 3ds Max 2016 and I'm excited to see all the tools you're able to create!

The new section is a clean slate so there isn't any content until you add it! Since MCG files are inherently visual I'd like to see more images / video examples of what people can expect when using them.
