# Select random value from a given list

Posted in: All Tutorials, Random values- Apr 08, 2013 No Comments

Random controller generates random values in range of [min,max]. for example in range of 1 to 20 you can expect numbers line 2.45123 and 10. Now what if you want to pick a value which you defined previously in a random manner. let’s say you have a list of scalar values like {2,5,10,20} and only [...]

# Finding closest object in array to a given point.

Posted in: All Tutorials- Mar 14, 2012 No Comments

To find the closest item of an array to the given point P, we should sort the list of points based on the distance from -P-. in this sorted list the first item is always closest point. see the video to find out how to setup controller in 3ds MAX to do so.
