3ds Max | Scripts

Cleaner

Problem: The filesize of scenes suddenly increases dramatically. This slows down the workflow since every manual-save and autobackup-save takes long and it fills your fileserver with maxfiles that are very big.

Reason: 3ds max adds notetracks and reactor-collisions to the scene. A common workaround for this problem is ctrl+N (New Scene: Keep Objects and Hierarchy) or to merge your scene into an empty new scene.

Outliner

 The Outliner 2.0 is a fast and easy to use scene management tool. It has a wide range of features, including selecting, hiding, freezing, linking and grouping objects in the "Hierarchy Mode". In the "Layer Mode" you can organize your scene by dragging&dropping objects from one layer to the other. What's more, the Outliner offers support for nested layers, to manage scenes more efficiently. The interface is nimble enough to keep it open constantly.

GTVFX-MSH_detachElementByMatID

Explodes a mesh object creating single objects for each material ID.

Mega 'Sweep'

Particle script operators

 


Two script operators for pFlow.

Biped Helper

A supplementary panel for use with Biped.

Main features include:
- Supports multiple Bipeds in the same scene
- Selection of core parts
- Hiding/unhiding and trajectory toggling
- Adding or toggling sliding/free keys for limbs
- Setting TCB values on a selection at current slider time, or over the full time range (if keys exist)
- Key all and delete all keys

Time Range Manager

Allows you to edit and save a collection of named time ranges and access them via a dropdown list to change the scene time range based on their time settings.

Ranges are stored as a collection called sets. Multiple sets are then stored as a collection called projects.

The data is stored in INI files and so makes it independent of any maxfile.

There's also a compact option by clicking the thin bar above the ranges list.

Bake Objects

Allows baking of keys for selected objects while providing options for how parental linking is handled depending on requirements.

Features include...

- Time range or limited range with step option.

- Baking to existing parent with an unlink option.

- Baking to a new parent while following exiting parents.

- Baking to a target object with options to unlink from the current parent or link to the target object.

- Baking of constrained objects that utilize position/rotation constraints or link constraint.

 

Controller Manager

A composite floater containing tools for adjusting controller or key settings.

Features include...

- Setting object locks (same as the Hierarchy panel)

- Set keyable tracks

- Convert controller types or remove constraints

- Adjust XYZ Bezier tangent types and TCB tangent types

- Settings can apply to multiple selected objects at once
