is there a global way to directly access values via scripting name like you can do with [pvar]?
nothing? or just a stupid question?
If you haven’t already done so, check out the objects in the "See Also" popup menu in the pvar help file.
there is only [send/receive] and [value], but the unique thing about [pvar] is that it can be scripted directly.
ok thanks, but i´m a bit sceptic about [pattr] in the speed aspect, as once running it seems to organize very much.
I think so, seems like it can do pretty much anything you want…though I don’t use it much in Max.
hm ok, thank you. i see there is stuff like "maxobj" to communicate labeled objects. thats promising ;)
i´ll take a closer watch when my time gives it.
i’m researching the same subject..
another very interesting solution is the FTM library, with FTM you can actually create variables and expressions as exactly as you said ( ;
before using FTM in all my patches i will try it a little bit more, any suggestions in this matter are more than welcome.
also i’m attaching a snippet i made using FTM. hope it helps you ( ;
ftm… the Max learning story never ends ;)
looks interesting indeed. A little bit I do hope that Code-Gen in Max 6 simplifies variable access as well.
