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.</p> <p><em>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 &amp; uploaded.

I'd love to get some resources up describing Python - 3ds Max integration / workflow / processes. If you've got or would write a beginner tutorial or even an advanced tutorial, please share it with the community! </p> <p> Some questions to get the ball rolling... What is Python? How does it compare to MAXScript? Why should someone use Python? Is Python best for end users or developers? How do you create a simple &quot;hello world&quot; Python script? </p> <p><a href="http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/news/call-for-python-tutorials" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/news/call-for-python-tutorials#comments News Wed, 16 Jul 2008 07:28:14 +0000 Admin 4543 at http://www.scriptspot.com Para 3d on Sale! http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/news/para-3d-on-sale <p>Don't miss promotional offer to buy Para 3d licenses 30 percent off!</p> <h3><img src="/files/u8028/promotion.jpg" alt="" height="283" width="601" /></h3> </p> <p><a href="http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/news/para-3d-on-sale" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/news/para-3d-on-sale#comments News Sun, 02 May 2010 08:38:22 +0000 ali torabi 6022 at http://www.scriptspot.com Fountain Animation Tools (F-Tools) http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/scripts/fountain-animation-tools-f-tools <p>&nbsp;</p><p><img src="http://www.fountain-tools.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/fountains-mail-1.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="349" /></p><p>About FTools.script in English:<br /><span style="color: #af0000;">http://www.fountain-tools.com/en/service/ftools-script-info/</span></p><p>Manual in English:<br /><a title="Manual in English" href="http://www.fountain-tools.com/downloads/FTools.Help_.ENG_.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.fountain-tools.com/downloads/FTools.Help_.ENG_.pdf&nbsp;</a></p><p><a href="http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/scripts/fountain-animation-tools-f-tools" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/scripts/fountain-animation-tools-f-tools#comments Scripts Animation fountain ftools.script Mon, 15 Feb 2010 23:46:59 +0000 DIA-Doca 5869 at http://www.scriptspot.com Project Manager http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/scripts/project-manager <p><img style="float: left;
