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.

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

Bake Animation to new Object

This simple MaxScript is extremely useful for copying animation from one object to another.

The script is free as part of my scriptpack. Instructions to download all my scripts are here.

To use

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.

This script will place objects according to the normal of the face you place them on.
You can add multiple objects in a list and let the script random pick one of those, or disable the random button and choose yourself.

DesignToolBox is packed with our previous tool, refGuides:

refGuides includes a set of tools intended to improve and facilitate accurate modeling, particularly helpful for modeling architectural scenes. This tools allows to create construction lines guides, for accurately position and model objects. They can also be used as rulers, displaying measurement units in the viewport. Other great added feature is the ability to snap to intersection points.

This version includes several fixes and improvements, along with some new tools and functionality, for example, orthogonal tracking has been implemented in scale, redimension and measure tools. read the changelog to see the major changes.
