Skin Slide by Seigi Sato

Dual Quaternion finally landed on 3dsmax!

27 votes

3dsmax has linear vertex blending for skinning by default, this causes a lot of artifact during bones rotation, especially
the classic candywrap effect. Dual Quaternion skinning mantains volume a lot better, BUT it cannot be used alone as general solution. In some situations you still would like to mantain linear skinning AND with XrayBlendSkin YOU CAN!
You can even paint the amount of Dual Quaternions influence.
- Dual quaternion skinning to avoid candy wrap artifacts
- Interactive bind between linear and dual quaternions.

From the IllusionCatalyst site:

IllusionCatalyst is a brand new set of instruments designed to increase artistic expression and productivity in Autodesk 3ds Max.

IC.Shape: Instruments for organic polygonal modeling. Draw and erase mesh edges like tracing lines with a pencil on paper, then deform and relax the surface like shaping clay by hands.

IC.Face: Instruments for facial rigging and animation. Bring characters to life letting them express every emotion and mood with a full range of controllers. No more gummy faces allowed.

IC.Mime: Instruments for keyframing and animation. Take a step and get the other one for free, control the flow of the action and each pose more easily. Forget about motion brakes.

RenderFlow is a nodebased render manager. It allows you to setup your
render passes much like you would set up a composite in programs such as

MCG support added!

6 votes

Calling all MCG developers! ScriptSpot now features an MCG section where you can share & find procedural MCG tools. This is an incredibly exciting feature of 3ds Max 2016 and I'm excited to see all the tools you're able to create!

The new section is a clean slate so there isn't any content until you add it! Since MCG files are inherently visual I'd like to see more images / video examples of what people can expect when using them.

saving only visible object

32 votes

I'm thinking about a script to save only objects displayed in the camera field (like "save selection" but for the camera viewport)
the goal is to make my huge architecturals scene easier to render, because sometimes i just want to render a part of the project (my camera field) and not the total scene,i think this could make my render faster
I'm working on it, so if you have suggestion or if a similar script already exists, please tell me !
(Sorry for my poor english, i'm french! )
