gizmoControl

gizmoControl UI screenshot
This macroscript (to be found in the "MB Tools" category after executing the .mcr) will allow you to link the transformation of a modifier gizmo to some other scene object. Afterwards, the gizmo will always be fully aligned to that other scene object, which can be freely animated by any kind of controller and linked to any other scene node. In some way this is very similar to World Space Modifiers but it works for any kind of modifier gizmo.

This tool can be very useful for creating complex modifier animations, for example animating a Slice modifier's plane along a path, attaching a UVW Map modfier to some animated helper object, transforming a Displace modifier with some other object, or having an extra node control the- symmety plane of a Symmetry modifier.

Lights Switch

0 votes

This is a small macro script I created that will search for all the lights in a 3ds max scene and will turn OFF any light that is ON. In case all lights are OFF clicking on the Button will turn them all back ON. I created this script for myself to avoid going through all the lights and turn them off in case I wanna do some tests using one or few selected lights. I know there is a light lister but it's not that practical. this script can be placed as a button on the toolbar, it's always there.

Most MAXScripts are available in .ms format and if there is a .mcr file included, it often requires rigid path structure to work. This little script creates macroscripts to run .ms or .mse files, the files themselves can be placed basically anywhere and you can define how they show in the interface.

FumeFX Dimension Copy

FumeFX Dimension Copy

This macroscript takes a selected Box and then copies it's dimensions and creates a Fume grid with the same area. I got sick of having to drag out a real-world scale Box and then dragging out a fume grid to match. This just takes the extra step out of it.

Auto-Link

3 votes

This macroscript adds an "Auto-Link" mode and allows to link objects very quickly when using "Paint selection region" method in the main toolbar. But it works with any selection method and "Ctrl+click". This mode is helpfull if you often need to link a lot of objects together.

"View and Zoom Extents Selected" macro buttons

0 votes

Simple macro buttons to set active view and run "Zoom Extents Selected" command. (If no object selected, "Zoom Extents" instead.) So you don't lose track of objects while switching views.
