View Full Version : 3ds max 8 maxscript issue

03 March 2012, 10:44 AM
I just joined the forum cause I really need help about 3ds max 8 max script...
I have problem with editable poly operations, and this problem is only occure in 3ds max 8
(it work fine in 3ds max 7,9,2011)
for exemple face position...
lests say the model is a simple sphere (converted to editable poly) and I wanted to get the position of a face (for exemple face number 175) so I do this

polyop.getfacecenter $sphere01 175

this work fine but now , if I add edit_poly modifier and I moved the same face (175) then recall the same function as above (polyop.getfacecenter $sphere01 175 )
this give me the same position...even if I moved this face

maxscript alwayse return to baseobject and it didn't take in concideration edit_poly modifier
and I reapeat that this issue is obsereved only in 3dsmax 8. and this for all polyop operations
(polyop.getnumfaces, polyop.getfacenormal...)

my question is is there a way to fix this?should I do somthing to force maxscript to take editpoly (or any modifier above the baseobject level)
