John Wainwright, the creator of MAXScript, has just released a new introductory video course on MAXScript. It comprises about 3 1/2 hours of 800 x 600 digital video, covering the fundamentals of scripting and presenting an introduction to the main features of the language. It shows how they can be used to perform tasks like scene generation, animation, material mapping, mesh export, etc. and how to build these into tools with custom dialog windows.
The course can be used by artists and animators without any prior programming or scripting experience to learn scripting from scratch, or by those experienced in other languages to gain a quick and practical introduction to MAXScript's features.
