The Assign Controller rollout assigns and appends different transform controllers to individual objects. You can also assign controllers in Track View.

Animation controllers are plug-ins that handle all of the animation tasks in 3ds Max Design. For a complete list of available animation controllers, see Assign Controller (Track View).
