Maxscript 101 - Free Online Training

818 votes

 

The creator of Maxscript (John Wainwright) has made his previously commercial training DVD available for free on Vimeo! 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.

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 & uploaded. Thanks!

Rig / Animate tanks

Hi everyone,

"Gearing" is a 3ds Max script, helpful by rigging and animating of tanks, excavators, dredges etc.
The new version supports automatic path following, acceleration / deceleration.
The script is commercial. I intend to add a demo to the new edition, however the 1 st version comes with a limited demo.
The next two tutorials introduce the script's basics.
If you take interest in this area you may watch them at:

Brick Wall Quick

3 votes

This is not a tutorial or script, just download the .max file.

Just trying out a brick wall with several scripts but sadly I have an old laptop so I thought why not try to make my own brick and then use the Clone Modifier (iToo) to clone it to two layers so that I could add more layers at a later date. It worked, I admit it's not brilliant but it might be useful to someone out there.

Made in 3D Max 2009

Added a Script made using Primitive Maker, it will be found under Wall and created a brick.

Maxscript tutorial: Abbreviations

Have ever wished for maxscript to have short cuts, So instead of writing a whole code like for loops ... or functions you just have to type (fordo) for example or (FN) and then press a Ctrl + Shift + A and it will throw you a full code that you pre defined, it's like magic and saves a lot of time. In this small tutorial we are gonna discuss how to do this using maxscript hidden technique (Abbreviations)

MaxScript 2012-2015 CHM Help

1 vote

After some time looking to get back the behavior of the MaxScript help previous to 2012, I couldn't find any information to do:

Press F1 to open the CHM Help file (not a combination of keys)
Open a single instance of the CHM file
Pass the selected word to the Index tab.

Finally with the help of a "lost" little utility, I got it working (mostly) as it used to be.

What do you need?

1. The CHM file
2. The little utility "KeyHH.exe"

You can download the CHM files from the following links:
