Should I use these MAXscript command ?
« on: March 21, 2016, 02:20:08 PM »
Hello everyone in iToosoft,
 I have a question about using these MAXscript commands.

For example, the forest is named "Fr",
--------------------------Script 1-----------------------
NewFr=copy $Fr

--------------------------Script 2-----------------------
select (all the nodes relatived to NewFr)
and use this code
savenodes selection "c:\NEWMAXFILE.MAX"

Will there be any problem that I merge this NEWMAXFILE.MAX in the future ?

Sometimes I'm not sure that the MAX CRASHES is caused by this method of duplicating the forest to another scene.

We are working hard in virtual effects in 3DSMAX. Welcome to our website in China.

Don't worry. You can use "copy" safely, it just replicates the behaviour of "Ctrl+V" in Max. Crashes cannot be caused by that.
