Smart Camera View 2.92 — Full Sticky, Rounding Resolution, Padding Suffix, Performance Settings

Amajor upgrade from Smart Camera View 1 (fomerly known as D95 Camera View), with many important additional features. This script is intended to replace the default Camera View (C) in 3dsMax with some cool functions. It will save you a lot of time when setting camera, especially in scenes that has multiple cameras with different aspect ratios.

CHANGELOG (LASTED VERSION)

2.92 | 06/12/2021

Full Mode:

  • Renamed the “IV” button to “I”.
  • Renamed the “LT” button to “L”.

Lite Mode:

  • Fixed an issue where some options in settings could not be applied to Lite Mode (fixed in version 2.85, however there are still some unfixed features).
  • Fixed an issue where the state of setting button does not display correctly with the open state of the setting.
  • Fixed an issue where Lite Mode could crash when switching between Full Mode and Lite Mode.

Setting:

  • “Camera Name Setting” group will be merged with “Auto Repair Name” group in Script System Settings. Its two options “Remove Space” and “Replace with underscore” will also be moved here.
  • Shorten a few option names to fix interface errors when used on Full HD screens.
  • Added new “Auto hide camera and light icons” option in “Grab Viewport Settings”: auto hidden all camera and light icons if it’s not hidden when use batch grab viewport function.

Script System Settings:

  • Improved “Avoid duplicate” & “Fix broken names” performance.
  • Added new “Full sticky mode”: glue all the windows together. If this option is disabled, all sub-windows (Render Output Preset, Setting, System Setting), will be tied to the main interface of the script (Full Mode, Lite Mode), but not vice versa. Note that this feature can make moving the script window on the desktop very laggy. You should only use this feature when you have disabled the “Show winddow contents while dragging” option in Windows (System Properties > Advanced > Performance Settings).
  • Added new “Reset” button for “Dialog Gap” spinner.
  • “Camera List Height” group has been redesigned in the layout, and has a separate “Reset” button for each parameter.
  • Added new “Rounding resolution” option: rounding up the camera’s resolution. For example, with “Round to 10s” option, 1691, 1692,… will be rounded to 1600, with “Round to 100s” option, 1691, 1692,… will be rounded to 1700.  Note that using this function can cause your aspect ratio to be lost. Make sure you know what you’re doing.
  • Added new “Padding suffix” option: by default, in the script and in 3dsMax, the camera suffix number will be 3 digits (001, 002…). With this option, you can customize to 1 digit (1, 2, 3, 4…), 2 digits (01, 02, 03, 04) or 4 digits (0001, 0002, 0003, 0004…). However, 1 digit is not recommended, as it may affect how the camera list is sorted. You should only use it when your number of cameras is usually less than 10.
  • Added new “Performance Settings” group with “Disable callbacks” and “Refresh by button” option: with “Disable callbacks”, the performance of the script will be greatly improved if you are doing heavy tasks. Note that it will also disable the script’s camera list auto-refresh, selection sync, and auto safe frame function. “Refresh by button” will help you manually refresh camera list without restarting the script by right-clicking the “A” (Select All) button in the script main interface (Full Mode). Note that it will replace the right-click function of this button (select only cameras that are not hidden).
  • Added new “Script Installer” group with “Remove / Reinstall Script” button: from now on you can reinstall, or remove the script with the built-in installer right in the script, exactly like you drag and drop the mzp file into the 3dsMax viewport.
  • The setting panel will no longer be closed when the “OK” button is pressed.

Other:

  • Improved script install / uninstall function.
  • Continue adding and fixing script tooltips.
  • Improve camera list refresh performance.
