Hi all I made a color macro that cycles through all the matcaps in the download section,
I have a stone cycle,shiny,metal ect.
For making a fullscreen movie trough all the matcaps,
But I have a question,I was wondering if you could pause the script en backtrack a script line by line
The way i have it setup now I have some delay's in there so if I have a nice matcap I use esc to end script,
It would be nicer to have like a script for backtracking the script and forwarding it.

No, I don't think this is possible. There is a command [Sleep] whch will listen for events such as pressing a key or mouse movement but it doesn't seem possible to use this to interrupt a loop.

Could I make a slider setup perhaps?
And make something simmilair like the Item info Slider,
And put all my matcaps in there and have a forward and back button?
Yeap. That method works pretty well. I did something similar.
Yes, as Nyx702 says (thanks Nyx702 ), this is possible - with some limitations: it's not possible to have the names of the materials in the slider, only numbers; and the maximum for the slider can't be updated on the fly, so if you (for example) wanted to load materials from different folders you couldn't update the slider maximum to reflect the number of files.
I remembered some years back doing a cycle materials script that may be useful for ideas (although I didn't use a slider). It uses the old version of the ZFileUtils dll. If you adapt it then I suggest that you use the new ZFileUtils available at the top of this forum. You'll need to change the code as the routines are a little different but your script will then work for Mac as well as Windows. The original post is here, and the code is included in the zip:
i´ll peruse through it today.

Guy´s is it possible to have a continuus loop with the DoAllSubtool
Like continuus loop through all subtool and put a material on it?
,and stop method (besides pressing esc)?

That script is perfect.
It's just what I needed.
