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.

Gets the distance between two objects. Returns the value in your current System units. 

Automatically copies the value to your clipboard so you could, for example, past that distance value into your ZDepth distance.

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.

removeMissingPlugins

This is a small script for completely removing all references to missing plugins from your 3ds Max scene.

Use with care (!) and do not save the results under the same file name!

The script will replace any missing plugin object with the first usable alternative object of the same class it can find. I cannot give any guarantees this will not mess up your data, your machine or your live.

This tool will change the color of bones based on their squash/stretch amount, providing the user with feedback if they have gone beyond a desired threshold. It will live update as you move around and animate in the viewport.
