A list browser used to display maxfiles using one of three methods which you can open or merge from:
# SCENE Method; displays maxfiles in the currently open maxfile folder path.
# FOLDER Method; displays maxfiles based on user defined folder paths stored in an INI file.
# TEXT Method; displays maxfiles based on a list of user specified maxfiles (full-path required) stored in a text file.

Simply select a maxfile from the relevant list and click Open or Merge down the bottom.
