I was wondering if someone could code me a maxscript or point me in the correct direction. I want to save vertices on bones in a txt file in this format:

*SKIN_VERTEX_DATA 850 { *VERTEX 0 1 { *BONE "Bone03" 1.0000000 } *VERTEX 1 2 { *BONE "Bone03" 1.0000000 *BONE "Bone02" 0.0000000 }

It would be greatly appreciated.

I had a script that did almost exactly this, I edited a little to give that output. You may need to edit it some more since you format was a little ambiguous.

( --BOOKMARK SOME FUNCTIONS GetVertexWeightCount = skinOps.GetVertexWeightCount GetVertexWeight = skinOps.GetVertexWeight GetVertexWeightBoneID = skinOps.GetVertexWeightBoneID GetBoneName = skinOps.GetBoneName --FUNCTION TO EXPORT SKIN WEIGHTS fn saveSkin obj = ( --SELECT THIS OBJECT objskin = modPanel.setCurrentObject objskin --START A STREAM createms = "" as stringstream --GET NUMBER OF VERTS numVerts = getNumVerts obj.mesh format "*SKIN_VERTEX_DATA % {\n" numVerts to:createms --LOOP THROUGH VERTS for v = 1 to numVerts do ( --GET THE WEIGHTS weights = #() _bones = #() for b = 1 to GetVertexWeightCount objskin v do ( append weights (weight = GetVertexWeight objskin v b) append _bones (_bone = "$'" + (GetBoneName objskin (GetVertexWeightBoneID objskin v b) 1) + "'") ) --PRINT THE WEIGHTS numBones = _bones.count format "\t*VERTEX % % {\n" (v-1) numBones to:createms for n = 1 to numBones do ( format "\t\t*BONE \t\"%\" \t%\n" _bones[n] weights[n] to:createms ) format "\t}\n" to:createms ) format "}\n" numVerts to:createms --CREATE A FILE ON DISK AND SAVE IT skinFile = createFile ("$temp\\" + + ".txt") format "%" (createms as string) to:skinFile close skinFile ) for obj in selection do ( if isProperty obj #skin do saveSkin obj ) )
