miauu's Mini Transform Type-In

3 votes

  Script for 3dsMax 2009+ that changes the default Transform Type-In dialog to mini TTI. The miniTTI is placed over the title bar of the default TTI. The script file can be placed in maxroot/scripts/startup folder so when you run 3dsMax the default TTI will be automatically transformed to mini TTI and will be placed at the last used position of the TTI(default and mini).

In the video you can see how to use the script.

Special thanks to Denis Trofimov for his help.

Find identical geometry and instance it

34 votes

Everybody who have imported large amount of data from any cad system know that it normally kills the instancing. The intention of this script is to find geometrically identical nodes and instance them. This script will of course work if someone have used copy instead of instance in a scene and wants them instanced instead.

Added 2015:
I'm happy to see that so many have tried out my Sunday hack that I made 5 years ago...but as it was only something to do for a Sunday its not really something I support. I would love to, but my daytime job takes all my time ;-)

Atom

Atom is a new geometry plugin for 3dsmax.

It creates similar effects as you can see in After Effect's Plexus. Atom uses Particle Flow to generate lines, points and faces between the particles.

Flaps

Flaps simplifies animation of flipping planes. You select one edge, let Flaps generate a new plane which then will be rotated around that edge. Finally Flaps generates a spinner you can use to control and retime the whole animation.

Problem: The filesize of scenes suddenly increases dramatically. This slows down the workflow since every manual-save and autobackup-save takes long and it fills your fileserver with maxfiles that are very big.

Reason: 3ds max adds notetracks and reactor-collisions to the scene. A common workaround for this problem is ctrl+N (New Scene: Keep Objects and Hierarchy) or to merge your scene into an empty new scene.
