Batch Camera Render

260 votes

This script aims to replace standard 3dsmax's Batch Render and imitates Houdini Output Node workflow. Using it you can specify rendering parameters - frame size, frame number, output path - directly to camera object, so every camera in scene 'knows' what it intended to render. Additional functionality is Lighting Assignment - you can specify which light will be turn on or off for selected camera during the rendering.

1.12 New Feature:

  • Deadline support.
    Very basic imlementation, it allows you to submit your jobs on a deadline server. Enter deadline repository address and check "Use Deadline" checkbox. Other checkbox doesn't matter in this case ("Net render", "Show Submit Dialog").
    Probably it requires Deadline 3ds max Submitter installed. I didn't have a chance to check it on a clean machine.

1.11 Features and fixes:

  • State sets support added
  • "projectname" keyword added which resolves to project's folder name
  • other fixes and improvements

1.10.3b Fixes:

  • Crash when vray ir/lcache maps are set to auto-save
  • Region render was not set properly during the rendering

This is major update of the script, so it may not be as stable as before. Backup scenes or cameras at least before running this version. More information can be found here - 1.10b Multiple presets for each camera

Previous updates:

1.10.2b Fixes:

  • Problems with render elements paths
  • Copy/paste of render region settings
  • Properly convert render region values when change resolution

New features:

  • Multiple presets for each camera
  • New keyword %presetname% to support multiple presets
  • Distributed rendering checkbox added to vray common settings
  • Bugfix - Net render not starting after cancelling during local rendering.
  • Improved performance with scenes with lots of cameras
  • Added support of Vray RT as a production renderer
  • Added support of using MFRender script to render scenes through BatchCamera script.
  • Bugfix - Error was popping up sometimes during drag-n-drop
  • Bugfix - Render elements didn't render in certain conditions
  • Bugfix - Pre-render/post-render scripts didn't work on network rendering
  • Bugfix - Select All and Toggle All buttons didn't work properly

V-RayMtl Converter - the very useful professional tool for automating such a time-consuming process as converting of materials and other scene components (lights, cameras, proxy etc) from different renderer engines (currently supported: Standard, Raytrace, Autodesk Material, Architectural (Revit), mrArch&Design, Corona Renderer, NVIDIA iray (unofficial), fr-Advanced, Brazil Advanced) into V-Ray, as well as to reverse the conversion of V-Ray materials into standard materials (which is very useful for game developers, 3d modelers, etc)

Bitmap Tracking / Resizing ....

33 votes

New  -  ++ All Assets ++
New - External Bitmaps options - drag and drop external images to Resize or Convert to Tx, Exr or Jpg
New - Support for XRef files - drag and drop XRefs to Library Track Relink to Repath assets in XRef
New - Remove Selected Assets
New - Resize to Nearest Power of 2 (256, 512, 1024, 2048 etc)
New - Set Path dialog
New - Favorite folder list for Auto-Relink dialog (just drag and drop)
.

Bitmap Tracking / Resizing... is tool similar to Asset Tracking. But it gives more possibility to work with bitmaps:

- Support for All Assets now
- Sort files by name, image width, height, file size, path, gamma, texture name, status (Found - network, Found -  local, Not found)
- Resize to JPG selected bitmaps to specified size or to Nearest Power of 2
    - can be used to resize and repath selected bitmaps (by size) before sending to external renderfarm,
    - resize bitmaps in large animation sceens to reduce memory ussage,
- Convert... see below
- Change / Rename paths (with paths history and rename path prefix eg. change only server/drive letter)
      * Choose path from history or scene paths
      * Pick new path
      * Rename paths beginng ( drive letter or paths C:\sample\abc\ and rename them to Z:\3d\sample\abc\ )
      * Find and Replace part of paths - supports Regular Extension
- Multi-threaded Auto-Relink with progress dialog
- And More...

Populate:Terrain

34 votes

Populate:Terrain assists in creating and optimizing terrain surfaces from contour lines or from existing meshes. The quad based output allows for easier later remodeling, for example using push/pull painting. The regular face size reduces rendering issues (GI, displacement) and you can use Turbosmooth on it.

SteamRoller

8 votes

Steamroller unwraps every objects in a selection using Max's built-in flatten function based on the specified parameters. Steamroller is mainly intended as a quick and dirty method of quickly unwrapping lightmap UVs on large sets of objects, similar to the automatic unwrap in Render to Texture.

Rotation Axis Snap

5 votes

MUST HAVE very useful script that switches active viewport to the view closely aligned to the screen axis (camera view). The analog of behavior of constrain angle snap in ZBrush (activated by holding shift key).

Good replacement for internal switching between viewports hot keys (T/L/B/R/V), allowing you to rapidly switch to the top, bottom or side views while modeling. Instead of 5-6 keys, now you will have only one, that is more sense and intuitive.

new in v1.10: press hotkey again to switch back to the previous perspective view
