Hi,

I am a very basic max script and trying to write a script that builds a CAT rig based on spline guide.
I am looking through the CAT.wiki
http://cat.wiki.softimage.com/index.php/MaxScript_with_CATRigs

but unable to find the command that gives you that function and the macro recorder is not showing me anything i can use.

Any help would be grateful,

Cheers,

Asa

Is the latest help file I believe.

MyC=CatParent()
MyC.AddHub()

Will create a CatParent and add a Hub to it but see my other post
http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=98&t=812138

for the issues I'm getting regarding scale of the created objects.

Thanks hotknife

that helped, but now I am looking of how to add the leg
here is what I have which also I think does the scale


CATParent ()
CATParent transform:(matrix3 [-1,0,0] [0,-1,0] [0,0,1] [1,1,0]) isSelected:on
$Character01.CATUnits = b
b =0.1
rotate $Character01 (angleaxis 180 [0,0,1])

$Character01.AddHub()
$CATRigHub02.Name = "Pelvis"
$Pelvis.AddLeg()

let me know if you have any luck with adding the leg, spine and then arm and head

Cheers,

Asa

<void> means that the function doesn't return anything.
