I also have the issue with TX files that are not seen by the script, i hope you'll be able to fix that soon :)

Dear antomor , first of all thank you very much for your great tool !
In a future update, could it be possible to add the possibility to collect also relatives paths files, as it seems it doesn't work right now ?
(For example, autodesk maps, or vray maps / tx files)

Kind regards,

In this file, the winds up 100% finds the virus and this file is not from the author of the script. Also, there are all versions of the script inside, but no version 2.1. Be careful

Не пашет в 22 максе

Архив мигает, но не создается.
PS выяснилось, что не работает в итоге версия 2.99B - 2.98 версия работает нормально.

The archive blinks but is not created.
PS it turned out that version 2.99B does not work - version 2.98 works fine.

3ds max Version

I need to make an archive where the max file is in a different version (eg from 2020 to 2018) but the script only saves in current version. Could you implement a version selector in future release?

I just moved to max 2022

I am using mostly vanilla max, apart form vray, forest pro and pheonix. But your script is amazing antomor. Are there any plans for an update to max 2022? Vray also added a bitmap with .tx file format (probably a tiff) related to their new material browser. They probably need to stay where they are in the vray global variable folder. Anyhow i am eternally grateful to you for the huge amounts of time saved gathering maps from weird locations.
