Reset XForm

PEN Reset Xform is designed to make the task of resetting xforms on objects easier. This is done by automating the process of locating objects that need to have their xforms orthogonalized and or normalized. Objects that have been mirrored at the object level or scaled at the object level in any way will result in a transform matrix that doesn't have all of its axes at right angles to each other or the axes are not one unit in length. 

Show Main Notes

This 'bean script' just open notes from text file.
May looks like as 'popup notes' kind of scripts,
but it not create or add something to the scene file.
Come in handy then you need quick access (to read/edit)
some major notes without opening the scene file.

-- What it does --
When open/load a scene file, it check for a text file
with the same name at the same dir, and if found it,
just open it in your default text editor (e.g. NotePad).

Substance Bonus Tools for 3ds Max

Substance Bonus Tools for 3ds Max

The Substance Bonus Tools for 3ds Max is a free MAXScript package that includes several very useful tools to enhance your experience of using Substances in 3ds Max 2011 Subscription Advantage Pack.

XRef Scenes update

I experienced problem with updating XRefs scenes during main scene load. I can hit "Update Now" button on workstation but I can't do this during renderfarm rendering. This script forces XRefs update during main scene load. It should be installed on every single render node. I expreienced this problem at 3ds Max ver 9, script was tested on ver. 2009 also (will propably work at v. 2008). Problem disappeared at 3dsMax 2010.

PolySelections

Lets you select polys by the number of verts that compose them. So - in an editable poly object - it is easy to select all the polys that have 4 verts - or all the polys that have more than 3 verts - etc...

Will It Finish? ... Render Time Estimator

This is a quick calculator for those of you with backburner render farms. It'll estimate how many frames your computer will render versus how many your idle backburner nodes will in a given amount of time.

For example - say you work at a small studio and have a dozen backburner nodes available. It's Friday afternoon, you want to go home but you're concerned that the new glossy objects increased your frame time to 20 minutes / frame on your workstation. But how many can you render on the farm? This tool will help you. For the type of work I do this tool works well - your mileage may vary.

Open Float Help (O.F.H)

This script allows the open Help and Tutorials file in floating windows.

Normally, the help max file is hancored to the working windows. If we closed Max, it's also closes the help. With script Float Open Help, the file help remains open no longer hancored to the Max. Is can also open file .chm, .pdf, .txt, htlm and Web page.

Visibility Manager

Visibility Manager is a very useful tool if you work with
visibility tracks. It's default controller is On_Off -
it is hardly configurable. VisiMan script lets you automatically
convert On_Off controller to Bezier_Float controller. Second part
of this script lets you quickly and easily add some fading effect
to object's appearing and disappearing.

FumeFX Presets Tool

A Simple Tool for speeding intial creation of fumefx. Also has some handing presets for the beginner and the casual effects artist.

Hope you find useful!

BUG: Creating Fumefx Containers via maxscript breaks the preview window, unfotuantly i cannot fix this bug :(. The work around however (and im sorry is a little irratating), is the restart max after you have saved the max file.

Enjoy!

Vegetation

This Script allow you to create a ground plant by setting some parameters.

I tried to make the controllers the most easy as possible.

Enjoy!
