OutFiler file browser

7 votes

I have always been not happy with the endless movement through Windows folders to save and load scenes and models. It really takes 20-30% of the working time. Neither Windows nor 3dsmax can provide recent paths and easy folder navigation. I'm tired of this nonsense.
And then I wrote the OutFiler.

Script that has the ability to quickly find the necessary folders, save the history of movements along them with back/next buttons and recent list and the favorite paths for quick access to working scenes.

Relink Bitmaps

500 votes

 2.11 Changelog:

  • Fixed bug where Relink Bitmaps wouldn't launch
  • Fixed bug with 'Search Max File Path' option
  • Resizable missing bitmaps window (finally)

2.10 Changelog:

  • Added support for FStorm Render - Bitmaps/Lights/Proxies, thanks to Nikita Gushchin!
  • Fixed the "$directory not recognized" error
  • [NEW] Option to automatically search the Max scene directory

2.09 Changelog:

  • CoronaBitmap / CoronaProxy / CoronaLight support added (this didn't get added to 2.08 even though I meant it to).
  • Changed the functionality of the read-only browse (because I didn't like how I did it last verison)
  • Fixed the stupid error with the "RemindMe=" bug that users experienced when they pressed "Remind Me in a week"
  • Octane render is still impossible for me to support at the moment, they handled filenames strangely.  Contact them if you want support added, my forum name on their forums is colinsenner.

2.08 Changelog:

  • Corona Render fully supported
  • Browse buttons are Read-only share friendly
  • Attempted to support Octane Render, but the way they are exposing their custom map types like Image_Texture are not in line with any other plugin I’ve seen, if you want Octane support, it’d be best to contact them on their forums or email directly to help me resolve the issue, they were unhelpful when I attempted to contact them to resolve this.  My forum name on Octane forums is colinsenner.

2.07 Changelog:

  • Point Cache files are now supported
  • Fixed ‘directory not recognized: $’ error
  • Long overdue change to the way missing bitmaps are displayed, they are now displayed filename first, as requested by 100s of you.  Sorry this took so long.

Relink Bitmaps is a script to easily relink all missing files (Bitmaps, VRayMeshes, Mental Ray Proxies, VRayHDRI, IES, etc) when they change directories or when you move computers, check out the short video tutorial below for more detailed information.

Unlike some other scripts of its kind, this is free!  There is a small donation link within the script if you choose to donate, I will remove the nag.  It is a simple licensing system, that does not force you to transfer network cards or be connected to the internet and will work with all versions of Max that are supported by the script.  If you choose to donate I'll be more than happy to license multiple computers as well.

incrementalSave

57 votes

This macroscript is a replacement for the save function. It saves incremental file versions while keeping the name of the latest - most-up-to-date version always the same as the original file. This is good for XRef'ing because the filename does not change. Just add it to your File menu and/or define Ctrl+S as shortcut.
New: Old file versions will now be saved to a subdirectory
v0.61 update: Bug fix to handle non-standard number prefixes; small improvements to the UI and error messages
