Noors Simple Average Normals

4 votes

This is a simple script similar to Zoffty and Anubis average normals scripts.

At some point I think they used to work for me but i can't remember how !

This it not like ByteHazard face weighted normals ! This script doesnt look for the face area influence hence it's not fully automatic. In fact i scripted this before discovering ByteHazard script, but anyway, somebody may find it useful.

3DS Max File Version - 2013 update!

3 votes

This VB-compiled tool serves just to test which version of Max was used to create the saved Max file. Since 3DSMax doesn't do a good job at writing its version in the file's properties - I use this tool to find out what version it was created in so I can go back to the proper 3DSMax to edit the file.

If you have multiple versions of Max installed and want to know what version you used on an old project - use this tool to find out.

Wacom Holy Grail

1 vote

If you are like me and use a Wacom with 3ds max, you have definitely encountered this issue with selecting objects!

Scenario:
You select an object and it moves it!!!!!!!!!!!! this is no good!!

So what i wanted was to use Q to select an object, move it with W then go back to Q when deselected. So with some hardcore googling and experimenting i found a solution.

Behold the holy grail for all Wacom users!

Usage:
if max is opened, close it.
Copy the script to your scripts/startup folder
run max

or if max is opened.

FilePathFinder Pro & Light versions

410 votes

Using the FilePathFinder you can be sure that you have a complete control over external links into your scenes.

Asset tracking features include support for XREF files and easy linking with external files.

Using the FilePathFinder (and Batch Render&Relink), you can search for missing assets and relink external files.

In addition, files that are linked to selected objects are displayed in Interactive Mode, and bitmap textures can be toggled and placed within the Material Editor.

Also with this tool you can easy make an archive a 3ds Max scene.

Note that FilePathFinder supports the highest number of asset types of any plug-in.

 

For example, FilePathFinder is the only plugin that can display and relink Vray Lens effects, even with missing bitmaps. In addition, scenes may be archived and easily sent to render services such as RebusFarm.

The Batch Render&Relink tool helps manage your asset files into the 3D model and material libraries in Batch Mode.

BR&R is capable of rendering thumbnails for 3D models, materials, and IES photometric files.

Batch Mode makes for an easy way to gather and compile many assets at once.

  • Adds support to 3ds Max 2020.
  • Speeds up the relinking of asset files for complex scenes up to 5 times.
  • The option "Remove unused materials" now supports the Slate Material Editor. [3ds Max 2014 and above]

  • Fixes some minor issues with comparing external files with same name but different content
