data visualisation

    Jun 14 2013 | 7:13 pm
    I am very new to Max / Gen. Actually a new user since just 10 minutes ago :-)
    I have previously worked with OpenDX for scientific data visualisation (grids, meshes, glyph, etc). But I am now looking for something more contemporary... and I am willing to explore/learn Max / Gen and possibly combine visual and sounds.
    Is there any tutorial about the following tasks:
    -importing data in the software (ascii sets of: x,y,z data1, data2, data3, ...)
    -creating grids from x,y,z and select the data to display and colour map them
    -creating colour bars to show the range over a grid
    -import a 3d mesh and use transparency / wireframe or even cut the model with an arbitrary plane
    Any pointer much appreciated.
    Thanks for your help in advance,

      built-in tutorials are the answer.

      yes, how to say, I figured much out...
      I was hoping for more focused tutorials.
      all I can find is very vaguely related but of course, with a little bit of work I should get there.
      so far I have "almost" cracked point 1 above...
