simpler explanation, save an mb and an ma file. Try and open each one in a text editor. One will work Basically an ascii version is exactly the same scene (Although it may be bigger in size) but you can read it and make changes to it. We use them here so we can script stuff to happen and parse the files and make changes without opening the scenes up.

I see... I think I'll keep from the programming for now, but sounds interesting. : )

Thanks for the answers both of you!

no neither is paticularly better, they will do the exact same thing. Just that ma's are more useful for other stuff.
