An MS file may also be a script saved in the Autodesk MAXScript (MS) format. It contains functions and instructions users can run, often to automate common processes, within the Autodesk 3ds Max 3D graphics program. Users may open an MS script with 3ds Max to edit its functions and instructions or execute it in 3ds Max to run its commands.
3ds Max is a graphics application that can create 3D models, images, and animations. People commonly use the software to create models and scenes for video games, film, television, and the engineering and architecture industries.
MAXScripts allow 3ds Max users to automate common and complex tasks. For example, if a user is applying repeated edits to a model, they may create a script and save it in an MS file, then run it when they want to apply the edits to a model.
How to create a MAXScript MS file
To create a new script with 3ds Max, select Main Menu → MAXScript → New Script. The Scripting Editor that opens allows you to edit and save your script. 3ds Max saves the script in the following directory by default:
\Autodesk\3ds Max [version]\Scripts
