MaxScript 2012-2015 CHM Help

3 votes

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:

this is a very optimized solution to drive the behavior of particles by the deformation of a surface without to use script or complex rigs, this system can be useful not only to animate but just to model objects that have a large number of elements like tiles on a roof or to drive fractured objects to follow a deforming surface and so on, if you like this please let me know so I will produce more tutorials about the various implementations of this system
