ScriptSpot is a diverse online community of artists and developers who come together to find and share scripts that empower their creativity with 3ds Max or SketchUp. Our users come from all parts of the world and work in everything from visual effects to gaming, architecture, students or hobbyists.
"Here's a script to allow an object to follow the contours/etc. of another object. It's called 'Follow_Surface' and it will enable you to have an object follow a surface even if the surface is animated. You can also follow the surface with a time delay (like a buoy does when it's floating on water)."
This script throws up a menu of the objects under the cursor for selection - similar to right-clicking Photoshop's move tool to select a layer.
-Select a single object by picking from the menu. -Select multiple objects by holding down the control key while picking. -Use 'All -' with or without the control key - to add/remove all listed objects from the selection.
