Best Viewport Shading

This script automatically changes the viewport settings to the best possible quality. If you happen to use 3ds Max 2010, you will also notice that some unsupported/hidden features have been activated, like real-time indirect lighting.

Put the file in your startup folder.

ViewPort Preview

Capture Viewport animation to any output video/image format that 3ds Max support, with an access to the I/O bitmap setup (quality and compression settings), with a few (similar to the renderer) timing options.

    - version 1.4 change log:

  • Now custom-built sequence support negative ranges
  • You can use interval (space sign) in custom-built sequence


This script makes switching to another viewport when maximized behave like pre-max2010. It prevents a reset of the view so when you switch back and forth you get the view back as you left it.

Turn Viewport Maps On/Off

This is a very simple script for turning Bitmaps on and off in the view port. It has been very popular in the studio that I work at work so I though I would upload it. Its funny how the simple ones are the ones that every one likes. Anyways it will let you turn view port maps on or off, it works with Standard and V-Ray materials. It also handles multi sub materials with no troubles, you can also choose to display Bump or Reflection maps. If you have any troubles or ideas for new features please let me know.

Features new since V0.6:


animBoost is a set of maxscript that boost viewport performance for animated mesh.


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.
