Polygon Edge Summary


The info box will show when you press the corresponding button.

Here is a little script that displays how many x-edged faces you have in your editable polygon object, where x ranges from 3 to the maximum number of edges bordering a face that can be found in your object.


699 524

I made this tool to help me quickly crack up an object while maintaining material ids and uvs for the outside surface and inner fractures. it simply creates a series of planes with noise and probooleans them from the object. works pretty well, though i did add a backup button for incase a bad boolean operation happens.

Limitations include: this tool only works on one piece of geometry at a time.

V-Ray Proxy Tools

This is a very simple tool for controling the display of proxys in your scene. It is quite useful on large scenes with a great deal of proxys. 





 Joint Bend Rig Elbow Setup PreviewJOINT BEND RIG Shoulder Setup Preview

A Tool to greatly speed up and simplify the process of skinning the joints of characters,especially shoulders and hips which are notoriously difficult to skin. THE NEW VERSION 2 OF THE JOINT BEND RIG HAS A BIAS CONTROL TO CONTROL THE AMOUNT OF TWIST IN THE JOINT


Camera Rigger

Simple script that links a free camera of your choice to a hierarchy of dummy objects. I saw this little rigging example on a max tricks session at siggraph and I thought it would be good thing to script.

It will install as a macroscript under the mikes scripts category.

Material Converter

M-Converter UI

I made a Material Convert that converts Arch & Design materials to Vraymtl. I created this in my free time so its a BETA script. For now M-Converter only converts Arch & Design materials to Vraymtl. I hope you guys like this script.

Quick Include/Exclude Lights


Select your objects and lights, choose I/E ops and check "Transfer..."
(if you like) to move existing obj(s) into the new I/E List.
Works on all geometry + renderable shapes (as original I/E feature designed).


I renamed the script once again, you can find it here http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/scripts/subdivision-reversion

TurboReduce will recreate the subdividion levels of an already subdivided mesh.

Point Cache Lag Tool

Created by Chad Ashley and Tim Little

Working with hundreds of rippling objects that carry complex modifier stacks can be slow. Why not point cache the first object and then simply offset the timing of the rest? This small script was developed during internal animation tests at Digital Kitchen to expedite the creation of time-delayed animations.

Create an object and apply a point cache modifier to it.
Duplicate that object around your scene


Script looping through selected objects of your scene to hide unwanted edges in editable meshes (typically the middle triangles of surfaces).

This script was created to improve the visibility of models imported from Revit into 3ds Max via the FBX file format.
