Kenzors Mirror Ball

5 votes

This maxScript generates a mirror ball. I wrote it for fun, as part of some project related RnD.

There are a few parameters for you to play with, and it's a lot faster than building one by hand. But be warned things can get a little slow with a lot of mirrors. You can download it as part of my maxScript pack.

This will dismantle that wall of motion captured key frames into something more manageable. It’s not the most sophisticated of algorithms. But, it gets the job done and leaves you with nicely lined up key-poses. To use simply:

Camera resolution tool

5 votes

Frankly the default 3dsMax render settings bug me. They don't deal with modern cameras. The proxy settings are hard coded and can't be changed. There's no easy way to create over-scanned frame without a calculator. So I've written my own tool to fix these problems.

Tweak Camera Dialog

There several rollouts in this tool, each dealing with a separate task.

Advanced Sweep

5 votes

A WIP curve-controlled scripted sweep modifier. Both the Interpolation and Profile animation rollout UI items are not to be used yet and mostly work as placeholders for future options. But first I would like to solve the garbage collect issues that can result in system exception and max crash in the long run. Now it's more of a proof of concept than anything else.
