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

Guess you mean a case that

Guess you mean a case that you use materialID, because the script is only intended to ObjectsID. I can think about your proposal but it is a different script.

Great script, but....

Hi Ivan
Could give I a few ideas? I am working a lot of with ID workflow. Your script is great, but I would add a few options.
1) Could you show the name of material for every ID?
2) Could you add some feature for moving up or down selected ID's? For example, At the start of texturing, I usually design a Multi-sub object material this way:
ID1 - Wood 01
ID2 - Wood 02
ID3 - Concrete 01
ID4 - Concrete 02
...

But then if I need to add a material Wood 03, then I have to add that material under Concrete 02(which is madding whole stuck a little mess) or I have to manually move down all concrete materials in IDs and in Material editor. Would be possible to add some feature to moving up or down ID's and Materials in Multi Sub-object material? Or just somehow solve that problem, If you would like to add a new material to your multi sub object material?

3) Show a list of material names of your selected material-object. For example. If you have an multi sub object material with 100 ID's, It is impossible to know every ID and name of material. So, would be great to see a list of names your multi sub object materials on one page with ID numbers.

I would very appreciate If you would add some of mine ideas.
Best regards
Tomas.

TOP!

Very useful indeed!

Would it also be possible to give all selected objects a diffent ID instead of a random ID? So if you select 40 objects, they will receive IDs 1 to 40!!

Thanks v much :)

Very useful!

One thing though. in 3dsmax 201 64 bit, the Hide ID on viewport doesn't work until you select any object.

Apart from that its great!

Cheers.
