Title: About scripts
Post by: Gyperboloid on January 30, 2011, 10:11:39 pm
Ok, all these about give up Anim8or scare me, so I think it would be good, if I could learn writing scripts :P. And the question is : can I learn ASL without previous knowledge of any other programming language. I mean only by reading those that are on the site page and by other script examples ? From zero to hero, you know  :D

Yes, but understanding how any kind of scripting/programming works is a major bonus, along with a good understanding of math. Start small and play with the code, bend it to your will ;) There will be a lot of times where you can't figure out why the heck something doesn't work, and spend hours trying to hunt down the problem and solution. Search for some ASL tutorials, and look at the scripts already made. Many have comments in them to help you figure out what's going on.

When you're familiar with it, set a goal and work toward it.
