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.

There are only a commercial version of PM.

You can use the Demo version of PM for unlimited time.

No problem after uninstall.

You can open your scenes exact same as always.

"xref objects" in 'Model Merge Options'

Hi thanks. But your method is "xref scene". What I want is "xref objects", is that possible?
