Multi Mesher

11 votes

This is a quick FREE tool.
it acts like the Mesher, but instead of picking only one source object you can have a list of them.
And with some boolean options to intersect or subtract the meshes.

there is a add list for the boolean addition objects
and another one for the subtract objects

it keeps the animation...modifiers, and the uv's.

and the Source objects remains separate, so it'll not collapse it in one, like the boolean does.

you can also pick splines

installation :
1 : put the file in your script, startup folder.
2 : restart max

Fast Animation Surface Tool Inspired by what Pixar showed on Presto, this tool will really speed up your rigging workflow, but most of all your animation efficiency. You don't need anymore to create additional object to control your rigs, everything is triggered by predefined mesh zones and your mouse movements. So the advantage here is that it doesn't slowdown your scene by adding more elements, and most of all, you can control your rig directly on the mesh, without any visual interference, painful Controller selection or separate UI. So everything becomes very obvious and intuitive.

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.
