FilePathFinder Pro & Light versions

410 votes

Using the FilePathFinder you can be sure that you have a complete control over external links into your scenes.

Asset tracking features include support for XREF files and easy linking with external files.

Using the FilePathFinder (and Batch Render&Relink), you can search for missing assets and relink external files.

In addition, files that are linked to selected objects are displayed in Interactive Mode, and bitmap textures can be toggled and placed within the Material Editor.

Also with this tool you can easy make an archive a 3ds Max scene.

Note that FilePathFinder supports the highest number of asset types of any plug-in.

 

For example, FilePathFinder is the only plugin that can display and relink Vray Lens effects, even with missing bitmaps. In addition, scenes may be archived and easily sent to render services such as RebusFarm.

The Batch Render&Relink tool helps manage your asset files into the 3D model and material libraries in Batch Mode.

BR&R is capable of rendering thumbnails for 3D models, materials, and IES photometric files.

Batch Mode makes for an easy way to gather and compile many assets at once.

  • Adds support to 3ds Max 2020.
  • Speeds up the relinking of asset files for complex scenes up to 5 times.
  • The option "Remove unused materials" now supports the Slate Material Editor. [3ds Max 2014 and above]
  • Fixes some minor issues with renaming items in the listview.
  • Fixes some minor issues with comparing external files with same name but different content

IES from Caustics Generator

The script for easy render of the caustic from the lamps. Calculation of caustic takes a long time.

I have decided that you can bake a caustic in IES-files and thus make the caustic effect it deceptive for a large number of fixtures in the scene.

Relink Assets

37 votes

Hi this is my version of a tool for relinking (missing) bitmaps which can not be found for whatever reasons (changed paths, moved files etc.). It is pretty straightforward and works with almost any type of asset (maps, HDRIs, IES files) as long as it can be referenced and seen in the asset browser. Due to copyright restrictions I can not publish the code right now but I hope that it can help you anyways until max itself has a better management for assets.
