RE: Ресурс

Сделаю вариант сохранения сцены в папку, как если бы сделали Save as... в максе. А для выделеных обьектов будет аналог команды Save selected...
Думаю скоро добавлю эти изменения.'s picture


Здравствуйте. Пользуюсь Вашим скриптом почти каждый день. Просто вызывает некое неудобство при создании ресурса в новую папку сохранять туда максовский файл вручную. При создании архива проблем нет. Спасибо.
