Creating knobs/matrixctrl in max not working

hi all

following the instructions in this vid, i tried to get the knobs to work w/matrixctrl
http://cycling74.com/2011/09/06/week-33/
unfortunately the rotating a knob the entire box shifts to the left, not just the rotating knob

if anyone has an idea what i might be doing wrong, please do telL!
i can upload my script if thats helpful

cheers,
mrp

Have you set all the other attributes via the [matrixctrl] object inspector? It looks like you might have the “range” attribute set wrong, it might be worth double-checking.

Yeah it looked like this for me for ages until I figured out all the weird matrixctrl attribute settings.

Thanks for watching!

Edit:

Range = steps

thanks guys! but actually im finding it to work differently…
i have 16(x2) knobs
for some reason i thought that was how many were in the vid, so i was just copying
he set his range to 17, so did i

but looking back, he actually has 17rows
and i have 16!
so when i set my range to 16 it works!

can anyone confirm that thats right?
that our range should actually be the number of knobs we have rather than the “+1″

thanks in advance!

cheers,mrp

Yep , you’re right, it is the number of steps.

Oops.
