3rd version of Project Manager gains a lot of new features to manage 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, assign categories to materials.

Share xml files

There are some difficulties to implement it.
For example, multiple users can simultaneously change the directory tree.
In the file will be written information from only one.

But in the future I will do it.

thanks. but there is no

thanks.
but there is no "automatic" way to share the xml files?
now the way to do it is: person1 is adding a new path to to his local library, then he has to copy his xml to the other C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3dsMax\2010 - 64bit\enu\Scripts\TrackScripts\ProjectManager manually?

best would be a *:ini file with all *.xml paths then you could add a network path and share it with others. like the plugin.ini in max!

can this be done in a next update? it would be very handy for us, I hope for others too. :)

thanks in advance

Batch Render for 3ds Max 9.0

The compatibility problem the "Batch Render" with 3ds Max 9 has been solved.
Wait for the next version.
P.S.

The new version of the FPF will be pleasant surprise for users 3ds Max 9 and 2008.

Network access to libraries

Yes it is possible.

Make network access for necessary folders (Models, textures ...) 

Add these folders with network paths to the "Project Manager"  (For example \\server\Maps and etc.) 

After you add to Project Manager your folders,  close the "Project Manager". 

Go to the folder C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3dsMax\2010 - 64bit\enu\Scripts\TrackScripts\ProjectManager

Copy all files with extension ". Xml" to the same folder for other network users. 

In the future I plan to make possibility to use the common database for network users. 

P.S 

Very convenient to use network drives. 

Menu windows explorer Tools>> Map Network Drive. 

Of course the network drive letter on each computer should be identical.

Hi. Check the permissions on

Hi.

Check the permissions on the folders 

C:\Users\Turhan.arun\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3dsMax\2010 - 64bit\enu\scripts

C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max Design 2010

After reinstall Project Manager.

If the problem is not resolved, perform one of the following steps:

The 3ds Max 2010 has a problem with non-unicode languages

Possible solutions :

1. Move user settings to a folder 3ds Max (by default C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max Design 2010)

Close 3dsMax and change the next parameter in the file InstallSettings.ini

useUserProfiles=1

to

useUserProfiles=0

Then run 3ds Max, and in the menu Customize>> Configure System Paths change paths to your path to the installed program 3ds Max.

Copy all folders (but not files in the root folder enu) from  C:\Users\Turhan.arun\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3dsMax\2010 - 64bit\enu to the folder 3ds Max (by default C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max Design 2010 )

2.Write the system user name Latin letters.

3.The easiest way: Go to another version of 3ds Max
