MEM's Max2Maya - maya viewport navigation in 3ds Max

44 votes

Hello everybody. I want to share with you something I whipped up these past couple of days.

IMPORTANT! In order for all the controls to work, the pan and zoom hotkeys inside 3ds max must NOT be altered.

Also, make sure you close max before installing this, or it won't install.

It's basically an alternate viewport navigation inside 3ds Max that tries to mimic maya's Alt + Click viewport navigation to some extent. I am aware that there is at least one commercial solution out there that does this, but this one is free and I thought you might like that little detail.

Bubble Modifier

43 votes

Works like sculpt deform in Maya.

A SimpleMod scripted plug-in modifier which inflates or pinches
an object according to the transformation of the modifier's gizmo, the radius and falloff parameters.

The Radius is the length of the offset a vertex would get if it's distance
from the gizmo evaluates as zero. This parameter can be set to a negative value as well to create a pinch effect.

This is an external lexer for the scintilla based maxscript editor that ships with 3dsmax 2008 and later.

It adds syntax highlighting for C++, C#, Python and Ruby source code to the editor. This comes in handy if you are doing just-in-time compilation of external source through .NET.
