It’s true but not completely true.
I’m right know developping in C# SDK a complex program where I have needed:
- Lots of math (bisection, Newton-Raphson, Simpon’s integration, Hamilton paths…)
- SDK C# undo / redo
- SDK C# serialize/deserialize, keep dotnetObject in scene
- SDK C# node changed callbacks
- SDK C# lots of UVW mapping coordinates
- SDK C# splines over surface creation.
All these can be usefull algorithms for C++ SDK or Maxscript.
I have thounsands of questions that I’m solving taking hours and hours to get a solid answer. Why don’t I ask here? Really no reason or a lot of ones…
Basicaly, I don’t like users behaviour. As DenisT has said, the professional talking is absolutely gone. So, should I post my code just to help someone else to copy it? Because when I post my code with a question, there are just two possibilities: no answer or an answer from someone to whom I can ask the question directly by private. Why shall I do it public? Why should I give my work to those who do not deserve it?
You know, few months ago I was here helping directly someone in a a public thread. He was delighted because I give to him a solution to his problem (that took me days of work) so now he was able to go on with his C# SDK plugin. At one point of the thread, I got stuck in a point to go on with the plugin development. It was his time to help me. His answer was: sorry, it’s a professional work, I can’t give you the code, I will try to give you an snippet… till today. Of course, I knew from the first minute he wouldn’t help me.
So… what can I expect from people other than @denisT, @Klvnk, @PolyTools3D, @Serejah, @miauu, @Swordslayer, @Malkalypse, MZ, lo (and few others I forget, not more than five)? A B S O L U T E L Y N O T H I N G.
If we want serious help and implication, I think it is necessary to create a new forum restricted to trusted users:. people who don’t mind to share code with others and ready to spend their time for others. Perhaps not good programmers, but serious.
And leave this forum to help people whenever you want. By my side, every day I have less desire to help and share with strangers.
