Copitor

101 votes

Copitor allow you to quick copy/paste selected objects to another Max scene or in another Max if you have 2 3dsMax open. I also like to use it like as a "quick backup" for try something, and to be sure to loose nothing :)

Installation: Drop The file in max viewport and go to Customize ==> Customize User Interface ==> Category: zOffTy Tools ==> Copitor

How to use Copitor

Incremental Save

50 votes

It's a my super slim version with similar functionality to the Martin Breidt script, that saves incremental file versions while keeping the name of the latest - most-up-to-date version always the same as the original file. This is good for XRef'ing because the filename does not change.

Grab Viewport Plus

A requested script that add a few options to the standard Max screenshot tool:
   incremental save in given folder and prefix name,
+ forced toggle to Expert mode and maximize Viewport.

Save & Restore Views

6 votes

A simple script that is pretty similar to max's own "Save active perspective view" and "Restore active perspective view" functionality just that there are 5 slots with preview images. Un-comment the first 2 lines to install it as a macroscript. Click the little lock symbol to save a view, click the image button to restore it.

This macroscript is a replacement for the save function. It saves incremental file versions while keeping the name of the latest - most-up-to-date version always the same as the original file. This is good for XRef'ing because the filename does not change. Just add it to your File menu and/or define Ctrl+S as shortcut.
New: Old file versions will now be saved to a subdirectory
v0.61 update: Bug fix to handle non-standard number prefixes; small improvements to the UI and error messages

If you're tired of 3dsmax Auto-saving and freezing when you are working, this script is for you.

It's based on an idea of Vincent Lacour.

installation :

Put the file in the Scripts/startup folder of your 3dsmax installation.

Restart 3dsmax How it works :

When you start 3dsmax you'll notice a new tool at the bottom left of your UI.

If you right clic on the biggest button, you'll see a few options :

Camera Aspect Lister

18 votes

This little script is for people who makes numerous still image camera views with different image aspects. The script lets you choose a camera and modify the aspect on the fly and store this as a postfix the camera name.

This way you dont have to remember what aspect you used for a certain camera.

Script is only beta version - and my first ever script, so be warned. 

I am thinking of expanding to also link up a scene state with each camera, for easy storing of per-camera lights etc.

Save and restore up to 5 views in the current scene.

I am working on a bit more usefull version but I have some issues to be resolved. The idea is like in AutoCAD - you save up to 5 views in the current scenes - for now you can't save or name them but I hope to resolve that. This helps in working in the viewport without the need to create cameras.
