Maxscript is a programming language within the 3D animation and rendering software Autodesk 3ds Max. Maxscript allows users to automate tasks, create custom tools, and extend the functionality of the software through scripts that can be run from its interface. The language itself has similarities with JavaScript in terms of syntax but is tailored for manipulation of objects within the 3ds Max environment through scripting. It provides access to scene elements, animation controls, modeling functions and rendering options. Creative professionals use it to speed up their workflow by automating repetitive processes or creating intricate effects not directly supported by existing features in 3ds Max.
