Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Wire parameters explained, part of Animating in 3ds Max: Constraints, Controllers, and Wire Parameters.
- [Instructor] For this final chapter…of our training course,…we're going to look at yet another way…in 3DS Max in which we can create relationships…between objects, one that opens up all sorts…of animation possibilities for us,…this being wire parameters.…Now on light constraints, wire parameters…give us the ability to link not just objects together…in order to create an animation system,…but to link parameters so as to allow the adjustment…of an option on one object to change something…on another in an automated manner.…
Going beyond that, these particular connections…can be set up so as to be both one and two way,…meaning we can create an animation relationship…that works in both directions,…with the linked parameters being capable…of affecting each other.…We can even control a number of objects at the same time…using wire parameters by having a dummy object…contain the desired controls.…Using wire parameters in this way,…we can essentially set up custom constraints…for ourselves without ever having to go to the track view…
