Relink Bitmaps

495 votes

 

2.10 Changelog:

  • Added support for FStorm Render - Bitmaps/Lights/Proxies, thanks to Nikita Gushchin!
  • Fixed the "$directory not recognized" error
  • [NEW] Option to automatically search the Max scene directory

2.09 Changelog:

  • CoronaBitmap / CoronaProxy / CoronaLight support added (this didn't get added to 2.08 even though I meant it to).
  • Changed the functionality of the read-only browse (because I didn't like how I did it last verison)
  • Fixed the stupid error with the "RemindMe=" bug that users experienced when they pressed "Remind Me in a week"
  • Octane render is still impossible for me to support at the moment, they handled filenames strangely.  Contact them if you want support added, my forum name on their forums is colinsenner.

2.08 Changelog:

  • Corona Render fully supported
  • Browse buttons are Read-only share friendly
  • Attempted to support Octane Render, but the way they are exposing their custom map types like Image_Texture are not in line with any other plugin I’ve seen, if you want Octane support, it’d be best to contact them on their forums or email directly to help me resolve the issue, they were unhelpful when I attempted to contact them to resolve this.  My forum name on Octane forums is colinsenner.

2.07 Changelog:

  • Point Cache files are now supported
  • Fixed ‘directory not recognized: $’ error
  • Long overdue change to the way missing bitmaps are displayed, they are now displayed filename first, as requested by 100s of you.  Sorry this took so long.

Relink Bitmaps is a script to easily relink all missing files (Bitmaps, VRayMeshes, Mental Ray Proxies, VRayHDRI, IES, etc) when they change directories or when you move computers, check out the short video tutorial below for more detailed information.

Unlike some other scripts of its kind, this is free!  There is a small donation link within the script if you choose to donate, I will remove the nag.  It is a simple licensing system, that does not force you to transfer network cards or be connected to the internet and will work with all versions of Max that are supported by the script.  If you choose to donate I'll be more than happy to license multiple computers as well.

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.


New Features & Fixes for FilePathFinder Pro

  • 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 renaming items in the listview.
  • Fixes some minor issues with comparing external files with same name but different content
  • Fixes an issue with annoying message of Archvision RPC plugin at start
  • Fixes an issue with selecting Vray Proxies by file-name.

tree shop

31 votes

with tree shop you can easily plant trees (plane mashes with opacity-mapped bitmaps) into your scene.
each tree is an 'intelligent' object which allows later interaction - like changing/randomizing size - aligning it to the ground (gravity) - changing orientation and map (tree type).

Photoshop tool. Open image maps in photoshop

30 votes

Hello,

This is an update for an oldie but a goodie,

 

This is an oldie but a goody. Put simply, it is a script that will open 3ds Max material maps in photoshop. I use it in my quad menu. If photoshop isn’t open, then it will open it for you. The previous version used a hard old school search for image maps used
in your materials, before opening them in photoshop. This version uses
the max class dependencies to get all bitmaps used in a material.

BitmapPath in MatLib Relpacer

25 votes

This script can replace all bitmap texture pathes in selected matlib file. You select Matlib file,select directory you want to set, select the bitmap texture directory path you want to replace and thats all. This my first script.

BE CAREFULL. It does not make backups, but uses A LOT OF MEMORY, so if it crashes your matlib maybe damaged. Example: replacing All Evermotion ArchShaders Vol.1 + Vol.2 pathes (in one file for all maps) takes near 2,5GB! Any help and suggestions how to solve this will be accepted. This my first script:)

P.S. sorry for my english

Hello,

I would like to invite you to take a look at our new pipeline tool:
PSD2Mat - a pipeline tool

PSD2Mat is a production proven connection between Adobe PhotoShop® and
Autodesk 3D Studio MAX®. This maxscript converts layered PSD Files into
a Scanline or VRay, Brazil and Mental Ray Material. Named layers are converted to bitmapfiles
and assigned to their respective material slots.

RH Check ATS Maps

This script goes through all the .max files in a given folder and checks if all the assets in the Asset Tracking System have their status set to "Ok". Once its done it pops an info box thats shows how many files where checked, and then gives you the name of the .max files that were wrong.
