Enabling MaxScript Support in the Sublime Text Editor

By - - 3ds Max

In this short video, I step way out of my typical comfort zone to share an interesting tip and trick for the TD’s and scripting gang out there.  Sublime Text is a popular text-editor that accommodates lots of favored workflows in the industry.  This quick video shows how to add support to it for MaxScript.  The result is the ability to open, edit and execute MaxScripts from Sublime, which also has support for Python (as does 3ds Max 2015).

HUGE thanks to my good friend, Rogier Van Etten, for his work on this and also his patience while teaching me how to get this up and running!

The two lines of text that I copy paste for MaxScript hotkey execustion in Sublime are >

{ "keys": ["ctrl+e"], "command": "send_file_to_max" },
{ "keys": ["shift+enter"], "command": "send_selection_to_max"}
