Useful for previews - previzualisation and other non-final renderings - should work with any 3dsmax-compliant renderer. All parameters animatable.

  • Scene file name - optionally just the file name without path
  • Render date & time per frame
  • User & render machine name
  • Name of current camera
  • Frame number - optionally in SMPTE or seconds (new in 0.9)
  • Freely defineable user text with X/Y position (new in 0.9) - accepts generic MAXScript commands for custom frame information
  • Adjustable font size
  • Image Overlay (e.g. for watermarks) with different types of compositing modes and scaling
  • Display of safe frame
  • Center cross and 3x3 'Rule Of Thirds' grid

To install - unzip into your 3dsmaxroot\scripts\startup directory (if you haven't changed the startup directory setting) and restart 3dsmax. For more details - see header of the script file.
