Library Track / Relink... works with Multiple .MAX .MAT or XRef files without opening them. 

Dedicated to organize, collect or relink whole model library or all projects after moving them to new location. Just few clicks and they ready to merge / open !

Some of the options:

- Find all max, mat files in Selected folder + all subfolders (eg Library folder)
- Show assets status ( OK -network,  OK - local,  Not found ) Status is based on real check if file exist in network or HDD, not from asset manager.
File status in 3 colors -> Found - network, Found -  local, Not found ( eg.: easy sort and select all local -> copy selected to network)
- Show and change asset paths in multiple max files without opening them.
Sort files by name, image width, height, file size, path, gamma, texture name, status  (Found - network, Found -  local, Not found)
- Change / Rename paths (with paths history and rename path prefix eg. change only server/drive letter)
      * Choose path from history + 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 / Copy / Move selected files on HDD (copy with new name or rename + replace path in max file)
- Move / Copy local files to network with auto path replacing (for distributed / network render)
- Collect selected or all assets from multiple Max Files:
      * with path structure - similar to max archive
      * creates archive without opening 3ds Max
      * change asset paths to new location

- Supports files in IFL - sequence image files - resize / copy / path replace + rewrite IFL to relative paths
- It works with all kind of external assets VrayBmpFilter, VrayHDRI, VrayProxy, VrayIES, CoronaIES, Xrefs and much more
- Track, Auto-Relink, Collect all Assets inside of Xref files.
- Find and auto relink assets
Resize bitmaps
- Batch Re-save Max files -
to clean or convert scenes to Corona or FStorm, It has also option to use your own custom scripts (see screenshot below)

Re. Re-Save issues

Yes, sorry, v1.77 is newest BTR version and v1.04 is the newest LTR version, so you are using correct one.

Can you also send me screenshot of your Re-save window (to see your settings there)
Please send it to [email protected]
Will try to reproduce this error here and fix it.

Re gamma. simple changes can be done with custom scripts, Let me know what kind changes do you want to apply with batch gamma.

Thanks for quick reply as

Thanks for quick reply as always. Sorry I am bit confused of version you talk about. I have Library track/relink v.1.04 (this update has been realeased in 22.3.2022)...

You might talk about Bitmap Tracking / Resizing - update v1.76? ...confused

I have checked emails but 1.04 is the latest update I have by you. Might I am missing something?

Anyway thanks for those two addon scripts, I will use them. Actually...coud be done similar addon script for a gamma? I asked first time, If can your gamma organizer works as batch sript directly, but on the other hand, why not do this as batch addon script in the resave option of LTR?

Re Re-save issue

Hi Tomastnt,

Are you using the newest version v1.77 ? Similar error during Re-Save process used to happen in older version but it should be already fixed.
If this is v1.77 - please send me a screenshot of your settings in Re-Save window.

Thank you for new suggestions. I'll put all on the list to do. But most of those can be already done with simple 'Custom scripts' used in Re-Save max files dialog. Please see screenshot and 2 attached custom scripts.

Let me know which changes do you want to do with batch gamma. I can take a look if I can do simple custom script for that too.

Hi Pixamoon, I have quite

Hi Pixamoon,
I have quite often random issue when resaving. I use max 2020, win 10, and in resaving, I use only: convert to units and prefer vray render as default rendner. I don't use backup files so I rewrite-replace them. The issue is every time the same and appear randomly on files. I am not using any cloud service on these files.

999 - -- Known system exception
-- ########################################################################
-- Address: 0x2ec23978; nCode: 0x00000000C0000005

Would be great to have option to zoom-fit the perspective or prefer camera view as preview screenshot. I also looking for a way to convert corona files in to vray files by scene converter in your script. You also have your gamma organizer, that I love to use to fix some trees models, anyway it is not working as batch. That be cool idea to implement as batch!
Anyway, thanks for...just insane scripts that saves me tons of my time! Really. The most used scripts are your ones

Awesome Script

Initial hiccup (for 3ds Max 2020) got corrected by Pixamoon within just a few hours at my personal request - can't say enough about how great the script works and how great Pixamoon is!
