Open Photoshop app from Max

Jan 20 2013 | 11:53 am

Hy guys…
I’m quite new to max, and I’m trying to build a patch to speed up my workflow in digital image processing. One of the steps that I need to solve is to open an application (in my case photoshop) within max, to be able to execute some scripts that I already create inside max implementing some variations in a standard original script.
This could allow me to choose some parameters when I start my work and leave max doing all the routines such create files, folders, links etc.

Sounds interesting?

Unfortunatly I cannot open the app. I’m working with the [shell] object, on an osx system. I’m able to open programs like Contacts, Preview or others, but not the programs of adobe. I’m getting an -666 error…
Programs are located in

/Applications/adobe creative suite 6/Adobe Photoshop CS6

Anyone could help me?

the strange thing is that I’m able to open the application from terminal (osx), but not sending the same string from shell inside max… it’s a kind of transmission problem between max and osx? maybe a codification of text that I doesn’t know?
