While it’s pretty well documented how to startup and run Maya standalone via
mayapy.exe I’ve been unable to find any similar documentation for how to accomplish the same with 3dsmax.
It’s easy enough to locate Maxs Python interpreter, eg
"C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2022\Python37\python.exe"
Starting a command prompt in the root Max install folder and running the interpreter does what I expect, but then crashes immediately after
C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2022>Python37\python.exe Python 3.7.12 (remotes/origin/adsk-contrib/3dsmax/cpython-3.7.12:a3244da8bf7, Oct 27 2021, 14:3) [MSC v.1916 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> import pymxs
Is this just classic 3dsmax shoddyness on display or have I missed critical documentation like something similar to Maya requiring
Any info appreciated.
