1 vote

V-Ray MultiMatte and Object ID Manager.

Handling ObjectIDs in Max can be a hassle. This hopefully simplifies life for you. You can:

- Easily set IDs on all selected objects.
- Select objects by their ID.
- List all IDs in the scene
- Clear IDs
- Automatically clear out old MultiMatte Render elements and recreate only the ones you need in the scene!

v2.0:

- Refined UI
- Added incremental add and use next available ID option 

Copitor

86 votes

Copitor allow you to quick copy/paste selected objects to another Max scene or in another Max if you have 2 3dsMax open. I also like to use it like as a "quick backup" for try something, and to be sure to loose nothing :)

Installation: Drop The file in max viewport and go to Customize ==> Customize User Interface ==> Category: zOffTy Tools ==> Copitor

How to use Copitor

V-RayMtl Converter

152 votes

A simple MAXScript to automate otherwise time-consuming tasks regarding converting some types of materials (currently: Standard, Raytrace, Brazil Advanced and fr-Advanced) to VRay Materials - and also fixes some parameters of materials of previous versions V-Ray (1.09.xx) in view of changes in new versions V-Ray (1.46.xx and 2.0 SP1).

Skip Every N-th

61 votes

Skip every vert/edge/face. In Loop mode, you can skip edges and polygons. In Ring mode you can skip vertices,edges and polygons. To make poly loop select 3 faces(the middle one is starting face), check PolyLoop checkbox, set "Skip V-E-P" spinner to value greater then 2 and start skiping. You can't skip one face, only 2 or more. Ring mode does not have this limitation. "For Steps" spinner works only with edges. If you want to skip every 2 edges five times, set "Skip" spinner to 2 and "For Steps" spinner to 5. Instalation: Drag-n-drop SkipEveryNthVEPRingLoop.mzp to 3ds max.

Flatten_Spline_XYZ

24 votes

This script comes in 6 macros - rolled into 2 script files. The script flattens splines to an X - Y or Z snap point. You select the spline - select the verts you want affected and then use the command. The script creates 6 commands - Flatten_Spline_X - Flatten_Spline_Y... Fatten_B_Spline_X and so on. The non B version moves the verts to the proper location but will not adjust Bezier Handles.
