Some times Max plugins do things in weird ways. I'll have to have a look at it with frost and the other thinkbox plungins.

Hi,
When I try to edit many frost objects at the same time with modifier zorb, it gives an error "--Unable to convert: undefined to type float." Any idea why?

Hi Jordan, thanks for your detailed response!

sorry about the late reply to your reply, think emails from script spot is being filtered by my email machine thing ; )

i actually tried your explained method as well, but had no luck.

however, what i realised (and now that i realise it, i can see how ZORB works lot better, and how much i love it!)

1. i actually thought i had to be on [modifers] tab to copy/paste modifiers.

however, i had to be on [base objects] tab to copy/paste modifiers, since i wanted to copy and paste to the base object, which actually makes perfect sense now that i figure it out.

thought i leave this comment incase others have similar questions as mine ; )

again! awesome script which i use alot of ; )

thanks so much for making my life easier!
