Manual Garbage Collection Light Option

MAXScript Language Improvements in 3ds Max 5

 

An optional light keyword argument has been added to the manual garbage collection gc() method. When passed as true, the undo buffer will not be flushed - any value that derives from MAXWrapper will not be collected.

The result is that less memory is released and gc runs a bit slower, but you can't corrupt the undo stack.

What does get collected with light:true includes rollouts, floaters, UI items, bitmaps, arrays, and bitArrays.
