Relink Bitmaps

487 votes

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.

File Organizer leaves an object ready to save in the library. With this Script, the next time you merge some object to your scene it will be perfect.

OK, tell me that you use TotalCommander. I can not work without him. With this script I made contact with a TotalCommander. This is RightClickMenu which has quick access to the locations of key files (loaded maxfile, render file location, material maps). The script search only for x64 version of TotalCommander. You can find the script in "IllusionBoxStudio" category (Customize/Customize User Interface/IllusionBoxStudio)

Save Increment

This code saves, and find the LAST SEQUENCE number in the file name to automatically increment.
This works especially with names with suffix after the sequence number.

3DS Max File Version

2 votes

This VB-compiled tool serves just to test which version of Max was used to create the saved Max file. Since 3DSMax doesn't do a good job at writing its version in the file's properties - I use this tool to find out what version it was created in so I can go back to the proper 3DSMax to edit the file.

If you have multiple versions of Max installed and want to know what version you used on an old project - use this tool to find out.

Maxfiles Browser

1 vote

A list browser used to display maxfiles using one of three methods which you can open or merge from:
# SCENE Method; displays maxfiles in the currently open maxfile folder path.
# FOLDER Method; displays maxfiles based on user defined folder paths stored in an INI file.
# TEXT Method; displays maxfiles based on a list of user specified maxfiles (full-path required) stored in a text file.

Simply select a maxfile from the relevant list and click Open or Merge down the bottom.
