I'd say that python+wxWidgets

I'd say that python+wxWidgets is equivalent to what dotnet can offer.

A true object-oriented language, builtin functionnalities for arrays/hash, xml, sql, threads and stuffs, that's for the python part.

The wx part brings you custom widgets to make better UIs.

this script is something that AD should have done for years :-)
I don't try it, I would like to know what python can make that maxscript or dotnet can't. No offense, just to know what the limitations are.
Thanks a lot.

Hello, You're right, that'd


You're right, that'd be a good thing, it's less easy to run than a classical mxs or plugin.
I'll work on it this week-end, stay tuned.

Hi, I have never used Python


I have never used Python in my entire life before so.....
This script seems to be very nice and I would like to test it out, but I do not know in essence whats going on when I try to get it started.

File "\\***MYCOMPUTER***\CameraMixer_v0.1\", line 4, in

Installation procedure


Here are the files I've installed to develop the tool :

- Python 2 (I tried on 2.6 and 2.7, the following filenames are according to 2.7)
- pywin32-216.win32-py2.7.exe
- wxPython2.8-win32-unicode-

And in the project's README, you can see that you need to run the file tools/ from 3dsmax before being able to use the mixer.
