– Overview

J3D Projector is a MAXscript that helps with the camera projection and matte painting workflow inside 3dsMax. It works together with CameraMapGemini, a free (for personal and commercial use) plugin by Markus Boos.
J3D Projector is currently in a beta stage, so you may find some bugs and a couple of features are disabled. Use it at your own risk

– Installation

1.- Download CameraMapGemini for the 3dsMax version you’re using
2.- Copy it into the 3ds max plugins folder (e.g. C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max\plugins)
3.- Restart 3dsMax (make sure you run it as administrator)
4.- You can either drag and drop ‘j3d_projector4max_install.mzp’ onto 3dsMax or run ‘j3d_projector4max_install.mzp’ from MAXscript -> Run Script… menu (if one option doesn’t work, try the other one)
5.- You will see a new top menu called ‘J3D’ from where to launch Projector

– Usage

1.- All UI widgets have tooltips, so that will help you to know what each thing does.
2.- Take a look to the videos in the download page(made in a very quick and rough way) to get an idea about the overall workflow

Version Requirement: 
Tested only in 3dsMax 2012, but it could work on other versions
Other Software Required: 
CameraMapGemini free plugin

Nice script

Have not tried it yet, but looks very handy from the tutorial. Great work.

Very cool script

Looks very cool, but I can't log in on your page (trying with G+) to download. After it tries to log in it shows a 404 error.
