View Full Version : Simplemod Subobject Center position?

02-03-2008, 01:41 AM
I'm having a REALLY hard time finding anything in the maxscript reference...I would KILL for the autocomplete capability that visual studio .net has hehehe...if thats available for maxscripting do tell...

Anyways...I need to find out the actual position of the simplemod modifiers center subobject. is that accessible?

Cant you just do this:

This will show you all its properties:
show $.modifiers[1]

or this can show you some more:
getsubanimnames $.modifiers[1]

This is the other option I have from http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=98&t=648609 ...BUT...I don't think it will work because I'm grabbing a snapshotAsMesh and performing a scale/rotate on it...so the center subobject won't even be there right???

What about using a XForm Modifier to do the Scale/Rotate?

Well...I want the original objects to stay the same...they shoudl only be rotated and scaled as part of the export process (since the software I'm exporting to uses a different axis configuration and scale system.
