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
      * chang 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)

Must have script

I've been using library track relink since 2 years and I don't know what I would do now without it. Pixamoon constatly updates it and it saves hours of tedious works !

Thanks a lot for your support !

1. backup files are stored at same folders as original files but with new extension ..ltrbak (.ltr001, .lrt002... etc)
2. Other people already ask for that. For now it way slower process than just changing paths or relinking because each file has to be opened in max, checked and resaved. Anyway, Its on "to do" list and will try to add this in future :)

And a q from me: What do you mean by combine it with Bitmap Tracking / Resizing ? Just to add similar options to Library Track / Relink ?

Script Works Great

I just bought this script. It works great. It saves me lots of time to relink my library files. It will be nice if you can combine this with your other Bitmap Tracking / Resizing script.

I have few question,
1) Where do you save the original backup files after relinking the asset path?
2) Is there a way to remove the unused textures and renderoutput path for multiple max files?

Thanks for your excellent script.
