Problem: The filesize of scenes suddenly increases dramatically. This slows down the workflow since every manual-save and autobackup-save takes long and it fills your fileserver with maxfiles that are very big.

Reason: 3ds max adds notetracks and reactor-collisions to the scene. A common workaround for this problem is ctrl+N (New Scene: Keep Objects and Hierarchy) or to merge your scene into an empty new scene.

Power Masker

The 3dsmax UI only allows you to set material effects ID up to 16 channels. The VRayMtl allows you to go beyond this using the effects ID override but other types of materials don't have any UI to adjust this. This tool using a backdoor into 3dsmax to set the effects ID beyond the 16 limit imposed by the UI.

This means you can create masks for every material in your scene. Using this tool you can either assign effects IDs by hand or just press to automatically create them and their mask render elements.

MCG Edge Length Display

0 votes

This MCG displays edge length of visible edges in your mesh. Will also work for spline, as in straight segments, ie. not the curve of a circle

ver 1.01: added unit display...with chicken foot symbol for feet...well it's my MCG and I can do whatever I want..

ver 1.02: added miles and kms

MCG Path Constraint a.k.a IncrCloneOnCurve

3 votes

This MCG constraints your object motion to a path. The motion can be repeated forever beyond the curve.

It can also be used to incrementally clone object along a curve and there is no need to adjust the distance

between the clones and count when length of curve changes.

 

Ver 1.01.00: You can now use a curve to control scaling of the clones.

santa Trajectory Limiter

4 votes

Sometime when we are working with complex animation scene we want to view a part of portion of trajectory for an animated object (as because the total trajectory line is showing us so much complex view) there we can use this script. Here we can mention the starting limit and the end limit of trajectory display. Then the script will show you only the trajectory of range given by you.

SUMMARY:
"Select From Scene" and other 3ds Max Explorer based dialogs introduced over the last few years, tend to always open on top/left screen positions. They simply do not remember any user set positions. This script fixes that using it's own database to save and restore those dialog's positions. This works across 3ds Max sessions..

Quad Cylinder

4 votes

Since I've written a few functions to make my life easier while working on the Gear primitive (plus one that I later discarded, intended to fill holes), I figured I could just as well make a quad cylinder as a much simpler example how to tie these functions together. Enjoy and feel free to rip the code apart and reuse it.

Quick Vray Camera for 3dsMax2016 and Vray 3.xx

0 votes

Very simply script which allows the creation of  "hidden" Vray Physical Camera in 3dsMax2016 with Vray 3.xx

qvc

In the last release of Vray 3.2 for 3dsMax, the Vray Camera does not appear; VRay uses the physical camera of 3dsmax. If you write in maxscript: " vrayCreateVRayPhysicalCamera() " we can create the "hidden" Vray physical camera.

Quick Vray Camera, facilitates the work for us.
