Wireframe Render Version 3.0

This script simple takes the max scene and renders wireframe, in either black or white. It does not alter your scene in anyway. Your scene will remain untouched with all of its settings and materials.
Enjoy!

This script is a small part of a larger script I'm working on for 3ds Max.

John

Additional Info: 

I have uploaded both the Macroscript as well as the MaxScript file to my website.

Installation
It's a macroscript, so just run the script and then you will see the available script in the Customize Toolbar section up JokerMartini.

Version Requirement: 
Max 5 - Max 2011
Other Software Required:

Wire frame size

Seams that 0.7 is the lower limit on wire frame size. Rendering in MR @ 800x600 that is

WOWre

This is so COOL. No scanline to get a wireframe render. Again the joker delivers!

what card dose he have up his sleeve next? Hope it's an ambient occlusion option?

Missing Lines

Very nice scripts. Great for dim-witted clients who can't understand whats going on in the viewports :) How do I prevent missing lines in the wire frame render without increasing Wire Size parameter? I tried switching to scanline and increasing AA in MR but this only renders the viewport. Thanks.

Extras

Are there any extras or things anyone would like me to add to this script?

Below someone mentioned hidden edges. What exactly do you mean by that?

It's no longer a Macro, is just a straight up script. You just run the script and the dialog will pop up. I'll work on getting it to render hidden edges. Update will come soon.
Thanks!

This is great for previews,

This is great for previews, setting up finaltoon for wireframe can be a pain, this is a one click fix.
Is it possible to render hidden edges ??

ps...I too can't find it in "customize" (Max 2010)

I've removed the macro part

I've removed the macro part of the script so it runs just as a stand alone script. No more installation issues!
Enjoy
