2013-05-10: Small bug was fixed that caused the script to fail in Max 2014.  Grab the latest if you are having problems.

2012-04-16: I made a small bug fix that clears up a problem with some uses of multi-sub materials.  If you've already installed it, download and run it again to clear up that problem.

As my very first publicly released script, I’m happy to add back in the light lister functionality for Maxwell lights! It includes the ability to change most of the significant parameters for a light, and if you press the button on the far left, it will select all the objects using that light, just like the traditional light lister.

Installation is easy, just run the script and it will be added to the “Customize -> Customize User Interface” dialog under the category “EM Tools”. If you aren’t sure how to install a script, I wrote up a quick explanation.

Note that this is not a replacement of the standard light lister (although it does keep all the capabilities of the standard light lister). It is called as its own Macroscript, so you don’t lose anything or risk breaking existing functionality.

As always, let me know if you come across any bugs or have suggestions for ways to make it better!
