MAXScript Tutorials

Here is a few example scripted animations & PDF tutorials.
Some peoples find them useful and I decide to keep them online.


Example scripted animations

XviD's video clips are less than 5 MB, but if you use low-speed internet connection then it's better to download them to your disk, or watch them on alternative mirror links on Yandex or YouTube. Also you can download MAXScripts that are used to make the animations by clicking on the .MS icon. Note: Current host server has some file limitaions so any AVI files here can be deleted, but I'll reupload them as soon as I can.
