Get external maxfiles fileproperties (Version No.)
For an open file:
s = fileProperties.getItems "General" s = s[s.count-3]
#("3ds Max Version: 17.00", "Uncompressed", "Build: 17.3.374.0", "Saved As Version: 17.00") "3ds Max Version: 17.00"
But I've tried for an external file this:
file = @"C:\Users\test file.max" for i in file do ( f = fileProperties.getItems[i] "General" f = f[f.count-3] )
I don't think that this is possible looking at the help here (http://docs.autodesk.com/3DSMAX/15/ENU/MAXScript-Help/index.html?url=fil...) but maybe I'm looking at the wrong solution. Maybe metadata is a better way?
