[ "scene_01.jpg" + "scene_01\scene_01.max" ] as item

Hello Track,

I have been testing and old PM version i have a  suggestion that will make exploration much better than it is ...Not sure about its current state.

Project Manager should also treat [ folder\file.jpg+file.max ] as item.

example:(big image)

Drag ProjectManager.mzp file

Drag ProjectManager.mzp file into viewport, check "Uninstall" and press button "Next" for uninstall.
Or manually delete CacheStart.mse from "scripts\startup\" directory and "ProjectManager" folder from "c:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3dsmax\2011 - 64bit\enu\scripts\TrackScripts\" directory.
The "Project Manager"does not make any changes to the scene, you can open the same scene as on a computer without "Project Manager" as with "Project Manager".

I'm scared

So it appears that once you build a scene with PM installed that scene is tide to PM.

I used the PM mzp to uninstall. My scene opened fine before uninstalling PM. But now I get an error looking for PM related things. Also the render freaks out.

-Can you TOTAL uninstall PM?
-Dose PM write to the .max scene file?

Thanks for any help.
