View Full Version : animation automatisation

03-11-2009, 10:22 PM
I have a selection of 70 helpers that I want to animate, they need to rotate on the local y axis, is there a way to do this quickly automate this with maxscript? Anyone got any ideas?

say you have all the helper selected then run this example code.

rotY = eulerangles 0 -22.5 0

startTime = 10

endTime = 100

timeStep = 10

with animate on (

for t = startTime to endTime by timeStep do (

at time t ( for i in selection do ( in coordsys local rotate i rotY ) )

) -- end t loop

)-- end with animate on context
