New. Drop bitmaps with relative paths. DropToSlate respects “Convert local file paths to Relative” option in 3dsmax preferences. 3dsmax native drag-n-drop doesn’t :)
Very handy for Project Folders workflow.

Redshift Bitmaps are not being created without Vray installed

Hi, great script!

I am using Redshift 3.0.14.

RS Bitmaps are not being created unless Vray is also installed on the computer. Without Vray installed, maps are created as "bitmap" even when Redshift is the active renderer and "Use RS Bitmap" option is checked for DropToSlate Settings. With Vray installed, RS Bitmaps are created when active renderer is set to Redshift.

Thanks.
