OverMorpher WorldSpace

That’s a new 3dsmax plugin for animation.

It gives you all the freedom that even the best rig can’t.

You can sculpt your poses in animation at a specific time, and your corrective poses are blended on top of your mesh deformations.

ImpressObjects is a plugin for 3ds Max that allows two intersecting meshes to be pressed against one another so that their respective vertices do not overlap.

1) Use the "Select Node A" and "Select Node B" pickbuttons to choose two overlapping meshes.
2) Press the "Create Target" button to create a target helper. This determines the directions in which intersecting vertices will be moved.
3) Adjust the target helper as desired.
4) Click "Impress".

OverMorpher PoseSpace

OverMorpher PoseSpace is a 3Dsmax plugin dedicated to Pose Space Deformation.

It is pretty similar to the SkinMorph, Corrective poses driven by your Rig.

Except the poses interpolation is more reliable.

The SkinMorph modifier drives the poses depending on the angle between 2 bones.

OverMorpher Mesh Space is the release of what I showed a few years ago: http://hocuspocus-studio.fr/tools/overmorpher/

That’s a new 3dsmax plugin. It works like a morpher, but on top of an animated mesh.

It can be placed over a skin modifier, or anything like a point cache or an alembic…etc

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.

Multi Mesher

14 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.
