Using the FilePathFinder you can be sure that you have complete control over external links into your scenes.

Asset tracking features include support for XREF files and easy linking with external files.

Using the FilePathFinder (and Batch Render&Relink), you can search for missing assets and relink external files.

In addition, files that are linked to selected objects are displayed in Interactive Mode, and bitmap textures can be toggled and placed within the Material Editor.

Also with this tool, you can easily make an archive a 3ds Max scene.

Note that FilePathFinder supports the highest number of asset types of any plug-in.


The Batch Render&Relink tool helps manage your asset files into the 3D model and material libraries in Batch Mode.

BR&R is capable of rendering thumbnails for 3D models, materials, and IES photometric files.

Batch Mode makes for an easy way to gather and compile many assets at once.

The new version of FilePathFinder is released with support to 3ds Max 2022

Hi, after searching long the there any possible way of unisntalling this script? would appreciate some info on this

Thanks. No antivirus


No antivirus installed on this machine, and I use UNC path names (\\server\x\y\ etc)

Again, it only seems to be happening with FPP. Asset manager and Relink Bitmaps do not seem to hit this slowdown. Any other thoughts?

Possible reasons: 1.

Possible reasons:
1. antivirus application.
2. The network path is specified on by ip-address (eg \\192yu168.0.1)

Maybe you should change your antivirus.
Or change the network paths to such \\servername ...

The super slow linking of

The super slow linking of network pathed images continues to be an issue. It can literally take 10 minutes to re-link an image that is on the same drive, but a different directory. Any clues? It's a great script in terms of functionality, but can be unusable for me like this.

(It's not always that slow btw - but not sure what triggers it since all jobs and my texture archives are all on the same drive in the same network location.)

I have emailed the bug

I have emailed the bug report. Noted in the email as well, but I am not sure what "non-standard programs" would include. There are many things installed on the system, but I have another script (relink bitmaps) which I also use and it doesn't seem to run this slowly, at least it hasn't in the past.

Open scene before relinking

Open scene before relinking and run FilePathFinder.
Open preferences dialog (menu customize) and generate bug-report.
Also write about not standard programs installed on your system.

Very slow re-linking of images

I found using the search/collect function, without collecting, was running extremely slowly, like 10-15 minutes to go through two folders and re-link maybe 20 bitmaps, so I tried using the manual option (f4 on a single bitmap). This took 1min 50 seconds to re-link, even though I pointed FPF PRO right to the image. The same process in Asset Manager is instant.

Is there some setting that might be causing it to run super slowly?
