I was seekeing a way to automatically generate the numbering of escape pods and found an interesting option:
I´m a 3dsmax2016 user, so, I don´t know if the script works correctly in this version, but I tryed. While I don´t receive any errors when using it, the result isn´t what I was expecting... Maybe I´m a bit dumb, but I need some help here to make it works. What I did:
I put the autosignage.ms and splintint.osl_.txt in the 3dsmax root directory (i.e C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2016\scripts). Is it the correct place to put the files?
I created the dummy, linked to a plane and applyed (as a test) the bitmap provided in the link pointed above. After the rendering I got the number 0123456789 printed on the plane, but it don´t changes when I clone the plane, nor receive less digits when I reduce the size of the plane. I think I´m missing something here...
Why the number isn´t changing and how to put only 3 digits over the plane?
Or.... it just don´t works in 3dsmax2016?
In advance, thanks for any help.
** Figured it only works in 3dsmax2019 and newer versions. See post #2 **
Attached, the rendenring test.
