View Full Version : Can this be Scripted?

09 September 2005, 01:31 PM
If I had a text file the listed a time, position, and location of a object that looked a little like this:

Time: 0.0

P[0000]=092.150,010.8000 (005.49)in LOWER-LEVEL

P[0001]=180.700,011.0000 (010.15)in LOWER-LEVEL

P[0002]=187.350,010.9000 (141.28)in LOWER-LEVEL

P[0003]=085.500,010.8000 (084.41)in LOWER-LEVEL

How could I bring this information into Max, could this be scripted?

yes this can be done , look up the "FileStream" command in 3dmax help . also there are a number of posts that cover reading from text files in this froum.

I hope this was some help :)

I don't think I am capable of writeing scripts. Would anybody be able to write this for me? or at least get me started?

Basically I have a file that lists objects (p[0000]) and gives a x,y, and degress rotated at a given times, which is every .1 seconds.

I want to be able to import this file information and assign a mesh for each p[0000] listed in the file.

Can anyone help? I would have to email the text file.

It can be scripted. Do you need a freelancer or is this for a personal project?
