|This Tutorial will teach you some
basic MaxScripting techniques for creating complex character animation.
The goal is to take a spider rig, and step by step have the spider walk
over a mesh surface. There are two MaxScripts that we will refer to; Spider_Simple.ms
which is the guts of the animation creation script and SpiderROF.ms which
is the simple script turned into a user interface tool with added features.
First, Download and open Spider_Simple.ms , SpiderROF.ms and SpiderWalk.max
Several important issues will be discussed;
1. Organization of rig
2. Animation variable creation
3. Time Table Number Array creation
4. Animation Functions
5. Surface alignment techniques
6. Object seeking
7. Interface creation
