Please send me the scene with the biped object

Hi!
I tried it again, and it works for me. Can you send me a scene file with the biped object you use? I'll try to fix it, but I can't reproduce the bug.

Useful tool!

Useful tool! Thank you for share it!

It seems it "zoom to selected frames" dosn't work with Biped :( Can you fix it?

>> MAXScript dotNet event handler Exception: -- No "">="" function for undefined <<
-- Error occurred in hpxtl_keyframes_click();

Also I think UI may be shorter in height (7pixels). I attached image with possible UI (red zone is unused space).

Answer for Massemannen

The script works with 3ds Max 9 and above.
Your idea is good. I will make it in the next update.

Great!

This script is so amazing, couldn´t live without it! Thank you
Just to make sure, the new version (1.5) is not 2013 only?

A cool feature would be to have a button that sets the timeline depending on the range of keys selected. Like if I have a bunch of keys selected that ranges from frame 345-554, pressing the button would make the timeline within those frames, make sense?

Take care
