Why are there no "maxscript in production' DVDs?

Hi

I am learning max script for some time now but the training material i found goes too much into details like changing the size of the spheres, growing spheres, controlling modifiers, and generally math stuff.

It would be great if someone recorded tutorial dvd with practical examples like adding a modifier stack with predefined mofifier parameters to objects in selection, or making a script that copies modifier stack from object and applies them to objects in selection, or adding spring controller with predefined parameters and wind control slider which affects every object's spring controller wind etc. i understand the tutorials available are recorded so that i have to use my brain and write this myself, but after watching the tutorials i still cant think of a way to write the things i need... seeing practical examples would boost the leraning process a lot.

PS: Has the scripting language changed in 3dmax 2013? i heard that a lot of maxscripts wont work in 3dmax 2013 and a lot of people had to rewrite their scripts.

Thanks for information about

Thanks for information about compatibility with 3dmax 2013, as for the dvds i could only find the cg academy fundamental and advanced course, as well as maxscript 101 which is available for free at vimeo

As for the vimeo movies, there could be more time spent on modifiers and controllers, but its ok for an introduction. I guess i will run through it again.

This is no true. If anything

This is no true. If anything more base maxscript functions are available and visible to maxscript allowing users to do more with maxscript than they could in 2012. One of those things being spline manipulation. As far as scripts not working anymore, that is not true. Just like miauu said. The only scripts/plugins that would have issues or not work are Plugins. Those have to be recompiled to match the latest version of 3ds Max. They would only not work if people are trying to install plugins for versions of max which they were NOT intended for, that's all.

Where you headt this? This is true for the plugins written in SDK, not for the scripts.
