Thanks a lot

Thank you for your script, it help me a lot to create my own, so much, finally is just un new UI design of your script.
You can find it here, if you are interest in it, is may be not so optimized than yours, but I work more on the use interface.
If anyone have some new idea, for interface of optimized the code.

thanks

Thanks Triff!

I am happy you like the script!
To be honest the other version isn't ready. It's been a bit on hold while I'm trying to learn Houdini and get a freelance company up and running. If/when it's released I'll let you know!

Sooooo handy!

Hey, just wanted to say a quick thanks for this tool, it's sooo useful when dealing with/updating huge projects and comps you're not familiar with.

Quick question, your site says "This free version only supports ObjectID, not MaterialID." - where can I get the MatID version? I use a couple of free scripts at the moment but it'd be good to have both in the same place. Also, some clients frown on using third-party scripts, your UI is small and easy to hide ;)
