Animation Beyond Keyframes

Another class by the legend Ted Boardman. Probably the BEST tip I got out of this class is a workaround to the issue of scaling/mirroring objects in MAX. If you've ever heard anyone that knows what they are doing in MAX will always tell you not to scale/mirror things since it will cause modifiers and animations of those objects to go haywire or just not work. The work around if you have to scale something is to make the scale and then apply an Xform modifier to the object (found on the helper command panel. This applies to objects that are scaled or mirrored in AutoCAD and imported into MAX as well.
