Explore MCG (Max Creation Graph) sample graphs in 3ds Max.
- [Instructor] The Max Creation Graph…is a visual programming environment…for authoring custom tools…such as object primitives, modifiers,…and animation controllers.…It's somewhere between a procedural content creation tool…and a plugin development environment.…And it's known as MCG.…Although MCG is a bit daunting for a non-programmer,…such as myself, it's still very powerful.…To use MCG, we need to understand it's file formats,…and folder directories.…
With 3ds Max 2018,…some new sample graphs are available…from area.autodesk.com.…And I've included those samples…in the exercise files for this course.…And they're here in the Exercise Files folder…under downloads, mcg-2018-samples.…And those are the files.…If you don't have the exercise files for the course,…you can download these samples from area.autodesk.com.…
