Bippy is a tool for converting FBX bone data onto a 3ds Max Biped and offeres serveral tools to help optimize this conversion pipline.
Its perfect for motion capture data when the client needs the data in a biped format.

The Script's feature list includes:

3ds max 2014 and 2018

your script is the best, but it gives out hello and bye on line 1706. Something with a dotnet.
dotnet.loadAssembly (GetDir #maxroot + "\\Scripts\\Bippy/GTools 64 - Bippy.dll")

I have a problem

Since the direction of the bone is set differently, I made a dummy in the right direction
And I linked that dummy to the bone.
This works well
But no fingers are made. (only fingers)

Can not reproduce the error

Hello again, jgk1981!

Just've gotten Max 2016 and tried to use script there.
I got everything working with no errors.
So, sorry, seems that this problem is on your side :(

Will look into it

Thank you for your screenshot. Seems Max 2016 has some more differences (I currently use 2014 and 2015).
Will get the 2016 and look how to fix it.
