Tired of navigating to the autoback dir, selecting view as detail then sorting by date to find your latest autobak file. then comparing it to your last good saved file? This script will make it easy for you. Brings up a list of max files in your autobak dir, max hold files and your last opened file, sortable by date, size and name. Double clicking will load the file, right clicking will give you a delete option.Sort settings and files displayed are saved between sessions

Unzip to your Max root dir, will be available in macroscripts under "Zorb Tools", or run it as a script from the scrips directory

hello Jordan!

thank you very much for many data format options!
here i attach screenshots which illustrate what i mean by gamma isuue

regarding thumbnails - are there different thumbnails in recent and autoback files, so it is not possible to retrieve both? as for me more important to see preview of autoback file since it is nameless

thank you very much for your efforts)

@harumscarumIm glad you find

@harumscarum
Im glad you find it useful.
In regards to your issues:

- thumbnails not working for autoback files

Im accessing the thumbnails that max creates for the recent file list so there are no available thumbnails for other files. I have no plans to implement any other method of retrieving thumbnails at the moment, sorry!

- gamma issue for recent file thumbnails (much darker)
Can you tell me your settings in the "Gamma and LUT" tab of your preference tab so I can fix this. Thanks.

- switch betwenn am/pm and 24h mode
Ill see what can be done. EDIT: Done in version 1.30... let me know if this works ok.

Thumbnail support in 2010

Thumbnail support in 2010 only, so there wont be any ">" in 2009.
