I am trying to develop a tool set for the automation of Maxwell scenes for an animation. I am very well versed in Grasshopper and have been using the scarab plugin to assign custom materials to various objects. Unfortunately, I can only output a single frame manually.
I’d like to develop some python tools to use within grasshopper, that allow me to:
- Assign custom materials from to objects (currently achieved using scarab plugin)
- Assign Camera and environments for the Maxwell render engine
- Export .mxs file to specified folder with sequential file name
There are other parameters that I would like to be able to control, but this is a good starting point.
