Rotation Axis Snap

3 votes

Simple script but very useful script that switches active viewport to the view closely aligned to the screen axis (camera view). The analog of behavior of constrain angle snap in ZBrush (activated by holding shift key).

Good replacement for internal switching between viewports hot keys (t/l/b/v), allowing you to rapidly switch to the top, bottom or side views while modeling. Instead of 5-6 keys, now you will have only one, that is more sense and intuitive.

new in v1.10: press hotkey again to switch back to the previous perspective view

Maya-like Time Slider

0 votes

I've always liked animating in Maya and missed the time slider toolbar you have there. I quickly recreated something similar for 3dsMax. It's not identical or perfect, but it works. I would love for it to lock and scale to match 3dsMax own Timeline/slider, but it sticks to the bottom of the screen and should work for most resolutions.

 

v1.1 Fixed a bug with a function not being declared

Spliner

2 votes

GuideLines

Spliner is a tool for flatten splins on one axis and conform the spline on mesh.
The script is working on a copy of the selected shape so you can always tweak
your base shape and run the script.
Spliner works only on shaps with no modifiers on top(stability reason).

The script is base on a script made by Klaas Nienhuis – www.klaasnienhuis.nl

Viewport Snap

0 votes

Viewport snap scripts snaps to the orthographic viewport that's closest to the current orthographic, perspective or camera view. It also frames current selection to fit into new view. If viewport that is snaps to is closest to the bottom or top orthographic views script will also try to detect the orientation of the current view and orient new view correctly.

This script is meant to replace repetitive task of switching to the top, side, bottom etc. views while modeling.

Spline FFD

19 votes

Spline FFD is a tool that allows you to move multiple vertices at once, moving the points of a spline.

New 1.1: Added mode that preserves the original distance between vertex.

With Spline FFD you can select a number of points on a mesh and creates a spline that passes through these points. By moving the points of the spline, the original mesh vertices move properly.

Animate street moving and racetracks in 3ds Max

Trajectory

The script "Trajectory" animates a single vehicle on the street or racetrack.
It updates the bodie's z_rotation, front weels' z_rotation, wheels' y_rotation and
car's position.
Supports acceleration (acceleration control), time control, creation of custom car rigs,shortest distance or higher speed moving path, engine audio.
The audio need to be tuned and maybe improved in next editions.
In newer versions of 3ds Max you need to click 2 times in the viewport, when you create the 1 st vertex of the shapes (arcs and lines - watch the video).
