spray and floats

May 12, 2007 | 10:40 am

Hi all,
although the manual and the help file say that spray only deals with integers (or lists in list mode), it seems that now it can understand floats (see patch below): is it something we can continue to count on in future max versions?

TIA
Maurizio

Yep, I know and I mentioned list mode in my previous post.

The fact is that spray now accepts floats in non-list mode also, despite the manual and the help saying that in this case it will recognize integers only.

This is absolutely, totally fine for me: i love floats in spray.
I only would like to know if this is an official improvement that will be mantained and documented in future releases of max.

I’d like to see even more enhancements: why not symbols as well? A lot
of objects carry unnecessary restrictions for types from old 68000 days.
It wouldn’t break a single patch, but would make life easier…
