Advanced Object Renamer

0 votes

Hi All,

This is a my first ever script. I made it to make my work easier.

INSTALLATION :- Just run the Script using the "Run Script" command in your 3Ds max.

Then go to Customize -> Customize User Interface -> Main UI -> nthScript [Category] -> Advanced Renamer

Set your shortcut for the script and RUN...

NOTE:- Keep the Script file and the TempMatLib.mat in the same directory.

Work only with Editable Poly objects.

The video show all that the script can do. Reference coordinate system must be "Screen", can align verts, edges or faces.

Select Every N-th-no UI

If you want to select every 2nd or 3rd or 4th, etc edges, just select the first edge, skip the desired number of edges and select the second edge, then execute the script.

If you want to see the time that script needs to make a selection, just start MAXScript Listener.

Instalation: Drag 'n drop two mzp files in 3ds max, then go to Customize - Customize User Interface. Under "miauu" category you can find "Gap Loop" and "Gap Ring" scripts.

On the video below the script works 3 times slower, because of Camtasia and my old, single core PC.

Modo selections style in 3ds max, but only for edges.

Grab Viewport (with alpha channel)

The script that grab the active viewport and include an alpha channel was requested in cgtalk forum.

So, this is my attempt. Note that the script is not very fast. Test it and if you like it - use it. :)

ver.1.1 - can take a screenshot that's larger than the viewport resolution. - idea by Bigjohn

Check for UVs outside 0-1 space

1 vote

This script was requested in this thread.

The script will apply UVW_Unwrap modifier to selected ojects, then will check for UVs outside of the 0-1 space. If there is UVs outside of the 0-1 space in the Maxscript listener will be printed the name of the objects with problematic UVs. In the end the script will dlete the UVW_Unwrap modifier.
