3rd version of Project Manager gains a lot of new features for management 3D Assets. 
There is most unique from them – the ability to assign custom previews to materials, associate files with materials, and create a gallery of files associated with any type of assets including materials. 
You can also write a description for material and, of course, add materials to categories.

preview of model

does Project Manager make preview of model? or U have to prepare images by your self>?

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

The 'Favorites' feature

Hi, I love the 'Favorites' feature in the PM, but is it possible to create more than one 'Favorites'? Let say 'Favorites #1', 'Favorites #2', "Favorites #3'..... or even rename it like 'Favorites - Table Lamp', 'Favorites - Floor Lamp'...? I think that way will make categorizing even more flexible.

Also, If I drag 3dmodel that has same material name
in my scene into the viewport,
the "Duplicate Material Name" dialog box will appear but 3dsmax will freeze.

Thanks!
I solved this issue...

But sometimes, when I drag the same model into the viewport,
I got this message
"MAXScript dotNet event handler Exception --
Runtime error: Attempt to access deleted scene object".

But not find any problems with this. Next time after you get this message
please generate the bug-report (Menu "Project Manager"==>> "Create Support request") and send to me.

Error message in version 1.63.11

Hi, I just updated to v.1.63.11. I love the "Merge as xRef Objects" new feature. However, sometimes, I have no problem drag my 3d model into the viewport. But sometimes, when I drag the same model into the viewport, I got this message "MAXScript dotNet event handler Exception --Runtime error: Attempt to access deleted scene object".
Also, If I drag 3dmodel that has same material name in my scene into the viewport, the "Duplicate Material Name" dialog box will appear but 3dsmax will freeze. (I am using 3dsmax 2009)

Can you verify the problems? Thanks.
