Edge Loop Regularizer EditPoly

7 votes

Edge loop regularizer for Edit Poly. This script is an extended version of the well known edge loop regularizer script. This version has a ported part of the original script that can handle edit poly objects. The only drawback is that it can be slower when you are planning to use it on an edit poly object, because how max is handling edit poly modifiers. If you are planning to use it on an edit poly modifier, it might better to detach the part you want to regularize, and than attach it back when you finished the modification.

Batch Camera Render

251 votes

This script aims to replace standard 3dsmax's Batch Render and imitates Houdini Output Node workflow. Using it you can specify rendering parameters - frame size, frame number, output path - directly to camera object, so every camera in scene 'knows' what it intended to render. Additional functionality is Lighting Assignment - you can specify which light will be turn on or off for selected camera during the rendering.

1.10.3b Fixes:

  • Crash when vray ir/lcache maps are set to auto-save
  • Region render was not set properly during the rendering

This is major update of the script, so it may not be as stable as before. Backup scenes or cameras at least before running this version. More information can be found here - 1.10b Multiple presets for each camera

  • Added support of Vray RT as a production renderer
  • Added support of using MFRender script to render scenes through BatchCamera script.

Materializer

4 votes


Materializer (materials equalizer) is the fastest way to create materials mixing different templates. It works like equalizer but for materials!
Example: To make glossy wood press the 'Wood' button and then add a little bit of plastic.

Every time you hit 'Set' selected material will be updated without removing of maps.

Currently only V-RAY supported.

Collapse Geometry

19 votes

I wrote this tool as I was sick of the default collapse tool crapping out when trying to collapse large amounts of objects. So far this has tool has been pretty rock solid. I mainly use it when I need to work with CAD files that I have imported. It is pretty self explanatory.

SteamRoller

2 votes

Unwraps all objects in a selection using Max's built-in flatten function based on the specified parameters. Intended mainly for texture baking.

Rollout Screenshot

Some minor additional functionality is planned for later releases. I'd like to keep this very simple and straightforward, but I'm open to feature requests.

Installation:
- Run the script using MaxScript -> Run Script
- Go to Customize -> Custom User Interface
- It can be found in a category called "# Scripts" under the group "Main UI."
