Landscaping using free scripts
One of the major advantages of MAX is the plethora of free scripts out there.
There are scripts for everything, from painting tools to scripts that create weird shapes, and even some that allow for creating entire buildings parametrically.
One thing that I enjoy is doing the landscaping for projects. Painting on grass, trees, rocks, placing flower beds, growing ivy up walls and around tree trunks&call me crazy, but there is something satisfying about creating the ordered chaos of gardens for architectural renderings.
Two scripts that I ALWAYS use in this regard are the MOVE TO SURFACE script , and RANDOM SELECT, both of which are tiny, simple, and free.
