hey bobo, does your kuper motion control capture script work in max 6? Also can it inport the kuper info on the fly?

Hmm, I don't know. It was written around Max 3 I think. Plus, it was hacky and it sort of worked with the setup the specific company had, but it might not work with other moco rigs... I have never used it myself in practice and cannot really tell whether it works or not...
Just use it as a starting point to hack your own importer.

ya figured it might be a good starting point for creating a custom controller or something that will sniff out a com port for streamed info. Unfortunately we aren't scripters...

My script was reading data files (and I assume the format was variable, I supported a specific version of the format I think). The moco rig came with its own MAXScript which was even worse...

I am afraid I cannot help much (in fact, I wouldn't touch that script with the proverbial pole 10 foot pole ;))

haha I dont blame ya. Though Ive been told this kuper device outputs an ascii txt file comprised of a fairly simple list out of rotation and translation data per frame.

Dude, rotations are NEVER simple ;) They just always pretend to be...
