When you divide topFraction by this number, the result will also be a floating point number. 0 to achieve the same result. 8. Run the script. The objects are assigned colors that form a gradient from red at the bottom to yellow at the top. 9. ms. ms on the CD. Hint: A small shortcut you could have used is the objects array. This is a collection of all objects in the scene that is automatically generated by 3ds Max. count do 60 Conclusion ❚❘❘ Then you could replace all references to coll with objects, and remove the line coll = $*.

In the Listener, type the following: coll = $teapot* arr = coll as array The Listener shows you that the array consists of two teapots. The syntax as array is similar to as string, which you used earlier. The statement coll as array converts, or casts, the collection coll to an array. 4. Select and delete one of the teapots in your scene. 5. /teapot*. The collection variable coll was automatically updated when you deleted the teapot. You did not have to do anything special in your script. Likewise, if you create another new teapot, coll is updated internally.

This is a common scripting problem that many new scripters encounter. When you encounter errors, reexamine your script to ensure that variables are declared in the proper order. Global Variables A global variable is any variable declared or defined outside all blocks of code. In the previous exercise, all the variables you declared were global variables, because they were not declared inside a for loop, while loop, function statement, or other block.
