JASON_DORRISMaxScript: Importing XYZ coordinates from Spreadsheet
by on Apr 4, 2007 at 10:55:19 pm

I have been given a spreadsheet of thousands of XYZ coordinates, for an object over time, that I will need to plug into Max. The data comes from some abstract simulation software and I am looking for a semi-automated way of importing it.
I imagine the best way would be to assign a 'position script' controller to the object and enter in the data in a "at frame: 01 [0,0,0] at frame: 0s [0,0,0]" " sort of format. But I don't know anything about MaxScript. Would anyone be so kind as to help me out with the syntax on this?

Am I right in the assumption that this is the best way to import this data? I am open to suggestions. Thanks!
