Chain Rigger


Tool for creating a rigged chain along a spline.


* create a chain of 1 or 2 different chain segments along a spline
* spline can be animated or linked and the chain will follow
* when spline is closed chain drive can be animated by an objects X-Rotation
* chain drive speed can be ajusted by a radius (of the rotation motor-object)


* create a spline and 1 or 2 chain elements
* run script and select objects


Do you ever get the "Missing Map Coordinates" window popping up while you're trying to render?

We all do.

This script will add simple UV's to all Editable Poly and Editable Mesh objects that either lack UV's or have corrupted UV's.

Please, use caution when using this script. It may screw everything up. So, save a copy of your scene before use.

Modifier Modifier Zorb

v2.7.05. Added support for parameters with no entries. Works with Thinkbox Frost again

v2.7.04. Added support for Corona Renderer Materials

v2.7.03. Dosen't save size and position if closed when minimized. v2.7.02. Added Maxwell material support

v2.7.01: A few UI bug fixes so the window will open the correct size and have valid settings on the first open

Edit ALL modifiers, ALL objects, ALL Materials, All Controllers, ALL Shadow types and ALL atmospherics/Render Effects. Work in max from a "Class-centric" way rather than a per object way. Edit thousands of object's perameters, randomize thousands of seeds, enable thousands of modifiers and more with a few clicks!

General Features (applies to all modifiers, controllers, materails, shadows, atmos and render effects):

MASS EDIT: Mass edit one property on all nodes at once, You can specify an absolute value, a relative value or apply an absolute value to modify

MASS RANDOMIZE: Randomize one property on all nodes at once

SELECT/DELETE BY CLASS: Select all objects with a meshsmooth, or all spheres or all objects with a path constraint etc

FULL INSTANCE/REFRENCE TOOLS: Make all objects/modifiers of a class or selection instances. Make Base object refrences. replace base objects with another obj (eg make all selected boxes an instance of a vrax proxie.) Available for Modifiers and Base objects only ATM.

LOAD/SAVE PRESETS: Load and save presets in xml format for modifiers, objects, etc.

Specific Features (Can be done to All or selected):

Modifiers: Enable, Disable, Enable in viewport, Disable in viewport.

PointCache Modifiers: Set ranges, Set path, Flush path, Reload, Record.

FumeFX: Simulate, Load settings

Lights: Turn all, selected, selected classes on or off. Multiply all light vlaues.

Xref Object: Merge object

Materials: Show/Hide In Viewport:  Shows the material in the viewport. Doesnt work with texture maps yet.

Spring Controller: Modifyspring controller settings (Needis its own section as springs are controlled differently with maxscript.

Merge Xref Controller:  Merges All/Selected controllers

Batch Camera Render

You can also try new beta of Batch Camera Render 2 - multiple setting for one camera and new render submit procedure.

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.

This bug fixed - http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/scripts/batch-camera-render#comment-15090

Quick Naming

A simple script, useful when your scene have a lot of objects and you want to match the material name to your object's name.

install: Simply run the script once,and the script can be find under the "isdesign_tools" category.

3DS Max- Freestyle Rigging Toolkit

I created this script for my Masters project at Bournemouth University. It allows you to create almost any rig in a modular fashion by simply drawing points and creating rig modules in between them.

It also has features for space switching, animation geometry and some hard coded deformation systems for the hip and shoulder.

MaxScript 2012-2015 CHM Help

After some time looking to get back the behavior of the MaxScript help previous to 2012, I couldn't find any information to do:

Press F1 to open the CHM Help file (not a combination of keys)
Open a single instance of the CHM file
Pass the selected word to the Index tab.

Finally with the help of a "lost" little utility, I got it working (mostly) as it used to be.

What do you need?

1. The CHM file
2. The little utility "KeyHH.exe"

You can download the CHM files from the following links:

Batch Render Wizard

Batch Render Wizard is a Scripted Floating Modeless Dialog that allows the quick setup of Batch Render combinations of Cameras, Scene States and Render Presets. It leverages 3ds Max built-in Batch Render system which allows saving Command Line Batch files, Net Render, and also saves everything in the scene so that other users don't even need this script.

Batch Render Wizard Example

Maxfiles Browser

A list browser used to display maxfiles using one of three methods which you can open or merge from:
# SCENE Method; displays maxfiles in the currently open maxfile folder path.
# FOLDER Method; displays maxfiles based on user defined folder paths stored in an INI file.
# TEXT Method; displays maxfiles based on a list of user specified maxfiles (full-path required) stored in a text file.

Simply select a maxfile from the relevant list and click Open or Merge down the bottom.
