Library Track / Relink... works with Multiple .MAX .MAT files without opening them.
Dedicated to organize, collect or relink whole new model library or all projects after moving them to new location. Just few clicks and they ready to merge / open !
Still beta / test version but most functions works already :
- Find all max, mat files in Selected folder + all subdirectories (eg Library folder). - Search in all my projects took 9s found 5200 max files.
- Get and change all asset paths in multiple files at once without opening them.
- Change / Rename paths (with paths history and rename path prefix eg. change only server/drive letter)
* Choose from path from history (already used paths in current project)
* Pick new path
* Change Drive letter
* Batch rename paths beginning ( drive letter or paths C:\sample\abc\ and rename them to Z:\3d\sample\abc\ )
- Rename selected files on HDD (copy with new name or rename + replace path in max file)
- Sorting files by name, image width, height, file size, path, gamma, texture name, status (Found - network, Found - local, Not found)
- File status ( OK -network, OK - local, Not found ) Status is based on real check if file exist in network or HDD, not from asset manager.
- Move / Copy local files to network with auto path replacing (for distributed / network render)
- Copy selected to one path with path replacing or just copy files - collect selected to project folder or quickly copy+change selected paths to not show your paths structure
- Collect all or selected assets with path structure - similar to max archive
- Collect all assets + root Max file -> creates archive without opening 3ds Max + changing asset paths to relative
- File status in 3 colors -> Found - network, Found - local, Not found ( eg.: easy sort and select all local -> copy selected to network)
- Supports files in IFL - sequence image files - resize / copy / path replace (not in demo version) + rewrite IFL to relative paths
- Script works with all kind of external assets VrayBmpFilter, VrayHDRI, VrayProxy, VrayIES, CoronaIES, Xrefs and much more
