Hi, a friend of myne told be to use Super lag for this particular animation that i wanted, but i can't get it to work.
I'm using max7, and i've downloaded the super lag script zip in michael J. Comet's site.

when i open max and choose Run Script, i believe this should appear, and it doesnt http://www.comet-cartoons.com/toons/3dfiles/superLag/superLag.jpg

i tried to put it in the plugins folder after that, it opens me the script dialog(like if i had chosen OPEN SCRIPT option in the maxscript rolldown), but i still cant get any menus.
I've tried it zipped and unzipped.
I'm a newbie on using maxscript so don't get upset if i'm doing / saying something that does not make sense ^^;

Please aid me.

Thanx in advance.

first, if u try and open the .mcr or .ms file on a notepad, u will notice stuff like this:


macroScript superLag
category:"Comet Cartoons"
toolTip:"superLag: Does nice lag/Overlapping Action stuff automatically"
Icon:#("CometCartoons",10)
(


ok, ill try to break down some of the important parts for you... this is what u'll most probably be looking for whenever you download some scripts.

macroscript superLag
anything after the word macroscript gives the name of the script as it would appear in the customize user interface list (see the attached image) , and in your 3dsmax6/scripts/macroscripts folder. In this case, the name superLag wud appear as the script name.

category:"Comet Cartoons"
when u open the customize user interface dialog, u'll also notice a couple of dropdown menus, one of them named aptly "category", drop it down and look for "Comet Cartoons" as indicated. Then, under that category, you'll see the script superLag

now there are a couple of things you can do once you found it, you could either create a keyboard shortcut for it, or add it to your menus and even place it inside your quad menus.:)


----
when you run a script:
- some wud run automatically (dialogs, rollouts, or executed)
- some are registered (macroscripts, callbacks..)
and
- some are installed

these are just "some" of them. I hope this helps! :thumbsup:
