thanks for calling me-taking-the-time-to-reply crap.
The max community is one of most friendly communities I know of. Lots of knowledge lingers here.
You just have to ask the right questions. And ad relevant information (e.g. you searched and couldn't find anything)
It's a mystery to me how you could have searched the forum and couldn't find the info you wanted.
that were obviously not targeted at individuals, just an average of replyes i got.
thanks for your time and your links, i wish to use gen because i would need those externals and i guess gen is my silver bullet.
maybe WE are better if you DO look at something else as that attitude doesn't sit well with a lot of people in these forums....as I'm sure you have already noticed. Anyway if you do join you will be most welcome just be careful with your language not to put people off helping you and give as much and as clear as possible information on what you need help with.
Despite that I think that most of those things would be possible but some would require a large amount of effort and a thorough investment of time into learning MAX and gen also (gen is more similar to coding than MAX). Someone who knows more about these things will hopefully be able to guide you into what you might need to do. Other than that I would still get the demo and try it out first.
