run script between frames on backburner job?


I posted in the 3ds max forum about a problem I am having. I think some nodes are not using the pmap or fgm on my backburner job.

the problem:

I would like for each node to run a script between frames that ensures it grabs the pmap and fgm. I am familiar with maxscript but not when it’s applied to bb.

Is this possible?



What you can do is assign to your render a preRenderScript.

This preRenderScript will register a #preRenderEval callback with the function of your choice.

#preRenderEval: time
      Sent just before the renderer starts evaluating objects. 
      Returns the time being rendered

See General Event Callback Mechanism in the help file
