Advanced UV Normalizer

6 votes

Advanced UV Normalizer (AUVN) is a tool for normalizing the Texel Density across different objects.

It has a comprehensive set of features to calculate, get, set and modify the Texel Density of your models based on different parameters such as Geometry Area, Texture Area, UV Area as well as the Geometry/Pixels and Geometry/UVs Ratios.

The Texel Density can be set using a fixed texture size, or you can assign different AUVN textures and normalize them all at once using their texture size.

Advanced Sweep

6 votes

A curve-controlled scripted sweep modifier. As of now, both the Interpolation and Profile animation rollout UI items are just placeholders for non-implemented stuff. Using curve controls this way is pretty much experimental and as such, I wouldn't advise using this in production - better collapse it or make a pointcache and use that instead.

Vray Mat Lister

3 votes

Hi everyone,

I'd like to share a script I have made.
It's for Vray and it makes a list of all your VrayMtl (and of the main parameters) you have in your scene.

UPDATE Version 0.5 for vray 3.xx

This tool allow you to modify all your vray materials parameters quickly. Globally it works like the Vray Lightlister

Copy Paste DWG

25 votes

 New - Dropdown list with default group names
 New - S button - Import Settings anytime
 New - Create Selection Set
 New - A button - Automatic Paste
 New - Auto Paste on start

This is another simple script to speed up some everyday modeling work....

Just to simply Copy Paste selected from AutoCAD or DraftSight to 3ds MAX 

It copy only selected, so its easy to split dwg to separate objects (elev from plans etc)

Function Sculptor

3 votes

zOffset = x^2-y^2

Function Sculptor is a scripted plugin that deforms meshes, polys or splines according to an arbitrary, user-input function. This allows easy creation of an endless variety of smooth, precisely curved surfaces. It also enables the mathematically precise curving of splines for extrusions, path-deforms and lofts.

It uses the world-x, y, and z coordinates of points to displace those points in world-z.

Editable spline shape with 2 sub-splines, before and after sculpt:

Select Hidden, Visible or Occluded Objects

5 votes

Select only visible objects! Delete all objects hidden inside other objects!

If you are working with object heavy CAD models you probably know that often 90% of the objects are hidden internal components of the rig. Stuff you usually don't need or want. Object count that make 3dsMax crawl.

This script lets you either select what is visible or hidden from the current view - or let you scan the whole scene. 
It's a very efficient way to clean up your scenes with a high accuracy!

FumeFX Grid Settings Deep Copy

0 votes

This script copies settings from one grid to another. It does not touch output paths, size etc, but it'll merge the other parameters from one grid to one or more other grids. Handy if you have a lot of grids, do a change in one and need to apply the same changes to all the other grids.

Current version has a couple of limitations. It does not support copying all effectors and keys from colors.


V-Ray MultiMatte / Object ID Manager

1 vote

V-Ray MultiMatte and Object ID Manager.

Handling ObjectIDs in Max can be a hassle. This hopefully simplifies life for you. You can:

- Easily set IDs on all selected objects.
- Select objects by their ID.
- List all IDs in the scene
- Clear IDs
- Automatically clear out old MultiMatte Render elements and recreate only the ones you need in the scene!


- Refined UI
- Added incremental add and use next available ID option
