For people who work often with Objects ID, this script may make it easier. It allows you to see which objects have ID, to select objects by ID, assign a ID and all this without entering in properties of the objects.

Version: 2.34

  • Add "Assign ID by Layers" button
  • Add Option to Assign Wirecolor by ID
Additional Info: 

Category "IllusionBoxStudio"

Working But not showing Viewport-ID 2020

Hi there,

Managed to get it working by installing it manually. But unfortunately "Show ID Viewport" Doesn't work anymore.

Would be nice if you find the time to update this super handy script. If i could buy an updated version i would.

Nice script!

It is a very helpfully script and i think it will be perfect if you could add a function to create corona masks from layers with the layer name, not just with the id name.

Not working

This doesn't seem to work at all in recent 3ds Max versions
By the way it is simply a macro script and that needs to be copied to the Macroscripts folder from Max. You can use the exe to extract it to any temp folder and copy it manually.
The menu will appear but does nothing.

I would like this tool but I do not understand why it is an executable. When I run it it claims I have Max 2015 for installation (which I do not).

Fantastic script.

I can't believe how over convoluted AD made the ID process, and how easy your tool makes it.
