Making Life Interesting—Your First Ten (or So) Words of MXS

MAXScript can take a big bite out of routine tasks. With a few simple commands at your disposal, you can frequently automate your way out of tedious clicking and even approach some problems from an entirely new angle. The goal of this section is not to make you a scripting whiz but instead to provide a few tools to help you automate tasks without involving a technical director or searching ScriptSpot.

Your tool for interacting with MAXScript is called the Listener (MAXScript > MAXScript Listener), a window into which you can type script commands that are immediately executed, and into which MAXScript writes its output (Figure 6.1). Your commands appear in black, while MAXScript's feedback appears in blue (for output) and red (for error messages).
