please bring back folder type

in your previous project manager we can easily assign folder for each type of files and was very convenient, but now we have to do one by one and sometimes I do mistake in typing folder or maps were saved in other folder for example. please bring back this feature, It is very handy and make our work very fast.

Hello,I' ve tried the demo

Hello,

I' ve tried the demo and i've met with the following issues:
- when i save a material and the object has multiple modifiers, it save only the bottom one
- doesn't saves the vraydisplacement if that is applied to the object

Had anyone else met with these problems? (using max2014)

Thanks!

Project Manager can display embedded thumbnails

The Project Manager can display thumbnails embedded into max file.
Also you can render preview for your scenes with "Batch Render" utility or from selected files in Project Manager.

id like to buy this script,

great script, just purchased!

is it possible for you to implement .max scene files as an asset with HIGHER RES images of viewport and notes for scene settings (even associated viewport animations that could be played with the browser (or opened) would be cool)

it would be great to be able to view higher resolution thumbnails, plus associated videos (i noticed when trying to rightclick render thumbnail, it will only render orthographic and not actually what is in your viewport perspective) this would be VERY HELPFUL!

highres thumbnails could be in a folder maxscene/_preview
and viewport video previews could be there as well, that would help make this a 3dmaxscene project manager!!!! would be superawesome

cheers
ian
