Call for Python tutorials

866 votes

I've been seeing a lot of discussion about using Python with 3ds Max for quite a while now... 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!

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 "hello world" Python script?

NOTICE: I had to make some major changes to sLib to remove several recursion bugs that could cause max to crash. I've successfully removed the bugs, but it's possible I may have introduced new ones, despite a lot of testing to make sure all of the functions still work correctly. If you see any weirdness where scripts you know worked aren't working as expected anymore, please get in touch with me immediately. Thanks.

Updated several older scripts, here's the major updates:

Ty Loar Du for 3ds Max, a new coding way without writting a line of code.

0 votes

Hello everybody,
I'd like to introduce you "Ty Loar Du", a nodal programming tool that allows you to create programs without writting any line of code. It is a very new way of coding in any language like MaxScript and Python for 3DS Max.
The goal of this fantastic editor is to give the opportunity to create as many libraries of Blocks of code as you want in any language or script.
The main objective is to simplify the programming process thanks to Blocks that already contain routines, processes, methodes of code lines.
Every Block linked to each other will form your final coded program.

From the IllusionCatalyst site:

IllusionCatalyst is a brand new set of instruments designed to increase artistic expression and productivity in Autodesk 3ds Max.

IC.Shape: Instruments for organic polygonal modeling. Draw and erase mesh edges like tracing lines with a pencil on paper, then deform and relax the surface like shaping clay by hands.

IC.Face: Instruments for facial rigging and animation. Bring characters to life letting them express every emotion and mood with a full range of controllers. No more gummy faces allowed.

IC.Mime: Instruments for keyframing and animation. Take a step and get the other one for free, control the flow of the action and each pose more easily. Forget about motion brakes.
