Cleaner

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.

Render Node Monitor

Render Node Monitor could help you save time and frustration:

  • If you have a smaller inhouse render farm(2-50 machines)
  • You are rendering with Backburner™, V-ray™ or Corona™
  • If it is hard to see and manage which spawners are running on which nodes, and you are using remote desktop for it

Delete UnRemovable Layer

0 votes

It may happen to you that you wanna remove an empty layer that you created before but delete option is grayed out in layer-manager and you no longer able to remove that layer. just remember that 3Ds Max never let you delete a layer while it contain some nodes nor default layer called “0”. but in some rare situations even an empty layer that you created and then you have done with it and want to delete it, but 3Ds Max not let you do that. It’s happen because of some unclassified nodes that came with your imported models from other programs, so you can’t see them in viewport and not in layer manager too. The only way to get rid of them is to select that Nodes from MaxScript and delete them manually so layer’s delete option will back again.
