call shell script from max

May 21, 2010 | 1:06 pm

hello all,

do you know what is the best way to call shell scripts from max? I tried this shell external

http://www.maxobjects.com/?v=objects&id_objet=1194&requested=shell&operateur=AND&id_plateforme=0&id_format=0

but somehow I can´t make it to run in Max 5. Is this outdated?

greetz,
florian

hey ad,

there is no patch yet cause already the install of shell is causing headache :)
i downloaded the external here:

http://www.publicbeta.cx/maxx/

but somehow the install did not work.
I placed the shell folder in the Cycling74 folder.

I wonder why the shell file has no .mxo suffix.

I also tried aka.shell. That installed perfectly by dragging to the Cycling74 folder.

thanx,
florian

aka.shell works for me (Mac OS 10.6).

Here’s shell.ub…
It’s more powerful than aka.shell, but I don’t remember the case…

hello! thanx ad, shellUB works fine in general. It just doesn´t like my special command:

aerender -help

also

mate -help does not work (Terminal Usage for TextMate)

typing this directly to the terminal works fine. but not with shellUB.
does shellUB just like a predefined set of commands?
