Overview:
A simple tool to render out top down maps from 3dsmax. An ideal way utilizing the tool would be in creating tilable textures. Besides tilable textures, this will help in overlaying additional small scale details on already made in-game meshes in a much more straight forward fashion.

How to Install

UI:

Align Pivot to Direction

7 votes

 Align Pivot to DIrection(vector) allows you to align the X, Y,Z or XYZ axis of the local pivot of each of the selected objects to the direction(vector), defined by two picked in the scene points. SNAP will be turned ON automatically.  If the Shift key is down when the axis is choosen the pivot will be moved to the first picked point.

Version 1.1 should works properly with Pen(tablets).

This script will transfer the normals from a source object to a target object, based on distance.

Transfering normals might have several uses : fix shading artefacts, enhance foliage cards look, toon shading...

Pick the source object, select the target object/faces and press steal !

  • Works with any geometry object.
  • Keeps the stack.
  • Adds an Edit Normals modifier.

Script will be found in the customize UI under category "Noors"

Average / Copy Border vertex Normals

By Marc Robert / Trebor777 ([email protected])

Tool to fix seams between 2 objects by averaging or copying the normals from one another's borders.

The user needs to select the same number of vertices on both mesh with an EditPoly modifier named "VertSelect". It's created automatically when the meshes are picked if they don't already have them.

The tool will compute the closest vertices from each other and uses those normals.

AutoPlace

This is a script like autogrid. You can move, instance and copy objects all over the place! ShiftPress the button for options (move, instance, copy, lock rotation and lock scale)

How it works: select an object and press the button. click and drag (left-right = scale, top-down:rotation)

If you select multiple objects it will choose a random one.

Ccom Map Baker-Auto Render To Texture

If you have high polygon file and low polygon file finished UV mapping process before,
this tool can  extract Normal, Diffuse, Ambient Occlusion, Lighting map in one single image within 3DS Max.
So you don't  need to use Photoshop to collaborate all these map images in a single image file.
Baking process will be easily done in a minuite by using this tool.
