View Full Version : Scripting?

06 June 2002, 08:41 PM
I hear people talking about scripting but I haven't been able to find out what you mean by it. Is scripting referring to the way the characters are animated? Or is it talking about writing up your own plug-ins to whatever software you're using? Any clarifications would be much appreciated, thanks.

In regards to your scripting question...around here when someone refers to "scripting" they are usually referring to the technical aspect of writing tools and functions for software application.

Almost all major highend 3D packages have some sort of custom scripting language [ Maya has MEL, 3DS max has MAXscript, etc.].
These embedded languages help artists and technical jockeys customise their workflow.

Look to the manuals or serach around the web for definitions on specific package's scripting languages.
