Hi there, my first day here.
I know scripting since much time but not MAX SCRIPTING and I need to make a script for this program.
It is a pretty simple (I think) script, here I explain what it should do:
- scan for all the objects in a scene (for/next cycle or whatever)
- write, for each object, in a ascii text file, object filename, position, rotation, size (world related)
- write, for each object, some stuff like referral number and such
- write the file with this list of objects and their datas on disk
I need to make it working with instances (I.E. must find which objects are instanced and refer them all to a single filename).
It would be nice to have the ability to save options (configuration) of this script on PER FILE base: in example it would be nice to be able to have as an option that in each file I can save the output text file into a specified directory, so I don't have to set it up every time.
So, a popup window is probably needed.
Well, anyone can help me sto start this up?
I don't want the script made, just tell me if there is a BASIC tutorial so I can find how to set up a popup window, how to write a line to a text file, how to find the full list of objects in the current scene, and how to write the text file to filename.map.
