New to Max. Have questions.

January 25, 2012 | 9:38 pm

Hello,

Could a Max app be easily embedded in other software?

I have been programming with C#, a little C++, and Java, could a Max app be connected to (or embedded in) a separate custom application, such as a Visual C# windows app, etc.?

Could a "standalone" Max app be easily distributed to different user’s operating systems?

Thank you,
afuse

I’m not sure about embedding a standalone in separate applications, but I can tell you that standalones are platform specific.

A standalone build (at least on Mac OS X) is a combination of a collective file (.mxf) and a version of Max runtime running together and acting as a separate application.

you can at any time distribute or share a max application uncompiled, i.e. as patches. this way your work is cross platform.
