Hi

I've recently created 3 scripts that create (almost) the same scene in 3 different applications (Maya, Max and Blender). They are intended to serve as a source of code snippets for future projects and examples of how to do stuff in those applications - something like Blender's cookbook.

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!

Rig / Animate tanks

1 vote

Hi everyone,

"Gearing" is a 3ds Max script, helpful by rigging and animating of tanks, excavators, dredges etc.
The new version supports automatic path following, acceleration / deceleration.
The script is commercial. I intend to add a demo to the new edition, however the 1 st version comes with a limited demo.
The next two tutorials introduce the script's basics.
If you take interest in this area you may watch them at:
1. (1 st version) http://youtu.be/LzhH0fY1Y0Q
2. (2 nd version) http://youtu.be/VPFjEXvReF4

Thanks for watching!
