Maxscript 101 - Free Online Training

Author: 
John Wainwright

 

The creator of Maxscript (John Wainwright) has made his previously commercial training DVD available for free on Vimeo! It's broken up into easy to watch chunks and even though it's a bit dated it remains one of the best introductions to MAXScript available.

A sincere thanks from the ScriptSpot community to John Wainwright for releasing his incredibly valuable training series for free and to our very own "Garp" for putting in the time to get the video split into sections & uploaded. Thanks!

MAXScript 101 is a digital video-based introductory course for MAXScript, the scripting language in Autodesk's 3ds max®, gmax® and VIZ 3D applications, designed and presented by MAXScript's creator, John Wainwright.

The course teaches the fundamentals of scripting and provides an introduction to the main features of the language and 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.

It 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.

The five parts of the course are:

  1. Introduction
  2. Script Building Blocks
  3. Scripting Tasks
  4. More Bulding Blocks
  5. Example Scripts
