Content (What we do):
[*] Starting with some simple boxes creation
[*] Adding a simple parametric animation (grow height)
[*] Testing and debugging
[*] optimizing the code
[*] check for technical trouble
[*] Adding ProBoolean to collapse all boxes to EditablePoly
(to reduce the number of polygons and objects)
[*] Adding MaxVersion() check (need for ProBoolean)
So here is the idea...
to make step pyramid from box primitive and animate it.
Note: This is not exactly "How To" tutorial, rather "walk-through" scripting procces, which will meet the most basic things in MAXScript.
