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.

Strip Paths from Bitmaps

1 vote

Removes current paths from all bitmaps in the scene. Primarily for getting rid of irrelevant paths on files recieved from users on other systems.

This functions in a similar way to stripping paths manually in asset tracking, but when doing that I've found that it can lag a lot and sometimes fail to strip some of the paths until you do it multiple times.

Bad paths can cause lag when Max tries to search for the missing textures, especially when they're pointing to a nonexistent network location.

A CMD utility to externally re-path 3ds Max files

0 votes

This is a simple tool I wrote in IronPython and compiled to a usable .exe program for re-pathing or examining 3ds Max (.max and .mat) files without actually running 3ds Max.

It's pretty useful for batch re-pathing before rendering on render farms, for example. Or just to view what type of files are being linked in your .max and .mat scene files and material libraries, respectively.

ZOA Path Editor

Simple Path relinker application for maps, ies, hdri and vrayproxy objects. Features are: path text replacing and copy functions. The two text fields below each section are for "original" and for "future" paths. $ stand for string. Use it to copy a map path of a selected map to the desired text field.

User interface for the maps section. Others look the same.

TronoTools: Animated Gravity Helper / Projection Path

0 votes

How would your object be projected with gravity? Nothing is more annoying than to see basic physics being broken!

This little helper creates a help path for your object to show you the most realistic path it will follow when falling from it's initial path. Keep your objects to the right scale and speed, and this script should be 99% correct for almost any object. (Feathers excluded ;))

ProTrajectoryHandles

ProTrajectoryHandles (PTH) creates in-viewport handles on trajectories. Now freeware!

Trajectory Tracker

This simple script was created in 3ds max 2013.

I do hope it will work with previous versions... 

What it simply does is to map out the trajectory of an animated object... 

USAGE:

Run the script -> Select the Moving Object & Click on "Track Selected"...

splineRig

61 votes

A spline based rig. An alternative approach to using PathDeform with more control over twist and scale.

1. Create a straight Spline - every vertex on that spline will be a helper to control the position
2. Run Script
3. Pick Spline
4. Adjust X Y Z to align the orientation of the box to your spline
5. Adjust width and length
6. Set twist helpers - this controls the amount of helpers to control twist and scale
7. Subdivisions - this controls the final resolution of your mesh
8. Press Go

Hi,

This script animates a parented wheel, it's rotation along travelling path, and a steering rotation.
