multi framed graphics

June 17, 2008 | 11:11 am

Hi friends !!!

Some of you might recall a previous discussion about making custom knobs ect..

for those of you who missed it , thanks to Dan Nigrin who directed us towards programs like ‘knobman’

Now my question is (I hope I don’t embarasse my self)

I have created several muti-framed graphics knobs (dial) ,

when loaded in max via ie:Pctcontrol

I get my graphic but with all the 32 instances (frames) of my knob

how do I get my graphic just to be 1 knob and responding correctly to the apropritae instance of the frame

thanks in advance !!!

Sebastian,

The most important parameters to get right (you can see all of these
in the Inspector for the pictctrl object):

Snap Size to Picture (should be checked)
Control Type (Dial in your case)
Dial Has Clicked Image (probably off in your case, unless you added
it manually post-Knobman)
Dial Number of Images (number of frames you rendered with in Knobman)
Has Image Mask (probably off in your case, unless you added it
manually post-Knobman)
Has Inactive Image (probably off in your case, unless you added it
manually post-Knobman)

Hope that helps,
Dan
