Good news for everyone! From version 2.9.0 removed version dependency.

In future all scripts on 3DGROUND will be shareware and will have permanent license.
Now you can buy any license and enjoy full support and new updates always.


Why Prune Scene better then other cleaners/antiviruses:

  • Continuous workflow (install then Clear or Disinfect without reopen 3Ds Max or external program install)
  • Multi language interface
  • Auto register menus interface
  • More virus signatures (now available 7 signatures)
  • Selective scan for viruses (without open files; scan whole partition as C:, D:; you can continue work when scanning)
  • Protect startup scripts folder from virus injection
  • Batch disinfect files (find viruses with Selective Scan then disinfect them all)
  • Silent notifications (log only). Best for render-farm nodes. Other scripts appear modal notifications that stop the render process
  • Instant updates from script
  • Client support


  • Clear Track Notes
  • Clear Retimers
  • Clear Mixers
  • Clear Garbage Collection
  • Clear Memory
  • Clear Reactor Collision
  • Clear Animated Layers

  • Clear Corona Renderer Missing Assets (HDCache.hdc, LUT (*.cube))
  • Remove Empty Layers
  • Remove All Animated Keys
  • Remove Missing Objects (LinkComposite, etc.)
  • Remove Invalid Objects (ParticleView, etc.)
  • Remove Viruses (ALC, CRP, ADSL, DesireFX, AlienBrains (mscprop.dll), PhysX Plugin Mfx, etc.)
  • Fast Selective Scan Viruses
  • Instant updates
  • Multi language interface
  • Batch Disinfect files from viruses
  • Active Protection from viruses (also protect startup scripts folder)

Thanks for the script, a long time looking for some consistent cleaner that works in new 3ds max.
Anyway, the UI seems to me not best designed. The button "start" does what? Searching for stuff, deleting stuff? all together? for me, this is not a good idea of UI. Do two buttons - better way. One for check the stuff and second one to delete all marked stuff. Also, by clicking to status on each stuff cloud be deleted only that one.
