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.

removeMissingPlugins

105 votes

This is a small script for completely removing all references to missing plugins from your 3ds Max scene. For more details when running the tool, make sure to also read the info printed to the MAXScript listener.

Use with care (!) and do not save the results under the same file name!

The script will replace any missing plugin object with the first usable alternative object of the same class (e.g. a missing render effect will be replaced by the first available render effect). I cannot give any guarantees this will not mess up your data, your machine or your live.

It retains the skin modifier too, so you can run on a skinned character as well. Feel free to use this script and lemme know if you want me to add any feature to it or if it has any bugs.
