The Man Scene Lister

This script is created to quickly load scene for each camera with each settings.

Loading Frame, Camera, Output, Hide - Show objects, all in 1 click. 

Additional Info: 

 

How to use:

1. Create a Scene Set by hide or unhide objects or set object properties in the scene, make it ready to render in that view and click '+' to create new Scene Set. (Scene Set is just saving / recording the current state of your scene).

2. The rest is simple, just type in the Frame, choose Camera, type in Output Resolution and even choose the output location if you want.

 

** Note for those who's still unclear about the step one,

Let say that you have object A, B, C. Open the file, Hide object A and click "+" type in name 'Scene1'. From now when ever you unhide all and load 'Scene 1', it will hide object A. The '+' button is to record the current state of your scene.

Features:

  • Make a list of setups that you want to have in each camera.
  • Load each of them very easily with the load button
  • If you've ever used 'Vray Light Lister' or 'Forest Lister', you'll be familiar with this script.
  • The Man Scene Lister Tools give you easy information of Vray Render Settings. Green = Good, Red = Warning!.

 Things you might need to know:

  • Your file need to be saved somewhere before using the script
  • This script will create a folder called '_TheManSceneLister' in the same directory as your 3Ds Max file with INI file inside.
  • If there's any issue with the script, try removing the INI file. 
  • Please don't manually edit the INI file.

The script is tested with 3Ds Max 2017 and Vray 4.1. It hasn't been backtest with previous version, so , no promise, it might work, but probably won't work.

Feedback:

Any issue using the script, bug, crash, please feel free to contact me directly at : [email protected]

Known Issue:

If you hide / Unhide everything, click '+' and nothing is saved, your 3Ds MAX built-in SceneState function is not usable. Try close and open 3DsMAX, go to Tools > Manage Scene States...  If the Scene State dialog doesn't pop up, close and redo this again at lease 6 times (I'm serious) until the 'Manage Scene States' dialog pops up.
