removeMissingPlugins

105 votes

This is a small script for completely removing all references to missing plugins from your 3ds Max scene. For more details when running the tool, make sure to also read the info printed to the MAXScript listener.

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 (e.g. a missing render effect will be replaced by the first available render effect). I cannot give any guarantees this will not mess up your data, your machine or your live.

MB Collapse

30 votes

Macroscript (without user interface) that will accurately collapse (bake) any transformation (position, rotation, scale) into keyframes (one keyframe per frame for the current animation range). Unlike the built-in tools, this works for any kind of controller as well as for parented objects (which will be unlinked afterwards).

v0.3 update:

LOD Creator

64 votes

Here's my version of LOD creation script, it uses multiRes modifier. It works on multiple geometry and retains the geo type. It retains the skin modifier too, so you can run on a skinned character as well. Feel free to use this script and lemme know if you want me to add any feature to it or if it has any bugs.

gizmoControl

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.
