AdjustRenderWidth for Vray

1 vote

It is a script inspired by the script of Martin Breidt "overscan" http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/scripts/overscan and explained by Peter Guthrie.

It is useful when you have a vray camera and you want to extend the view for example a bit to the left without changing the perspective. The calculation is pretty simple but you can save time and confusion using this script.

This script will change the bump value of those material that has VRayEdgeTex on their bump slot. and enable and disable them completely.
It was wrote to help somebody on chaos group forum, but feel free to use it.
...the default value is 100 ...
It will run on all object materials (multimaterial as well) and check the bump texture to be an edgetex and then change its value.

Maxwell Light Lister v2.0

This script finds all missing assets in the scene and allows you to replace the paths of these files. Users can omit the notification or replace the path.

Batch Camera Render

248 votes

This script aims to replace standard 3dsmax's Batch Render and imitates Houdini Output Node workflow. Using it you can specify rendering parameters - frame size, frame number, output path - directly to camera object, so every camera in scene 'knows' what it intended to render. Additional functionality is Lighting Assignment - you can specify which light will be turn on or off for selected camera during the rendering.

1.9.22 Bugfix:

  • Net render not starting after cancelling during local rendering.

Previous updates:

  • Improved performance with scenes with lots of cameras
  • Added support of Vray RT as a production renderer
  • Added support of using MFRender script to render scenes through BatchCamera script.
  • Bugfix - Error was popping up sometimes during drag-n-drop
  • Bugfix - Render elements didn't render in certain conditions
  • Bugfix - Pre-render/post-render scripts didn't work on network rendering
  • Bugfix - Select All and Toggle All buttons didn't work properly

DesignToolBox

Design Toolbox is a collection of tools designed to accelerate and simplify basic modeling tasks of  architectural, urban or interior scenes tools: Standard transformations by reference, like the ones usually found in more precise work oriented applications; Fast measurements, speed up positioning of reference coordinates and workplanes. It also includes some other useful tools for quickly apply and manipulate uvw maps, for paneling simple surfaces; plus some others useful time saver tools.

DesignToolBox is packed with our previous tool, refGuides:

refGuides includes a set of tools intended to improve and facilitate accurate modeling, particularly helpful for modeling architectural scenes. This tools allows to create construction lines guides, for accurately position and model objects. They can also be used as rulers, displaying measurement units in the viewport. Other great added feature is the ability to snap to intersection points.
