Global vs Graph parameters
« on: July 01, 2022, 05:31:52 PM »
Why is setting parameters by spinners in Global Parameters always smoother than the same parameter changed in Style Editor (Constant or Macro Parameters)?

Style Editor doesn't use 3DS Max native controls. It's implemented in a different toolkit, separated from the Max interface.
We had to choose this approach because Max didn't include any suitable option to create graph nodes.

We tried to emulate the behaviour of spinner controls in the same way that Max, but internally use different mechanisms to update the scene.

Ok, thank you, Carlos.
So I know not to think about that anymore and just accept the fact.  :)
