This is the perfect script to transfer your models from 3ds Max to ZBrush/Unity/UDK/...
Basically it batch exports objects to multiple files.
Supported formats : max, obj, fbx, 3ds, ase, dwf, dwg, dxf, dae, nif.

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.

Tape Measure

This script started out as a reply to the question of how to assign a shortcut to the tape measure, :)

Macroscript Creator

Most MAXScripts are available in .ms format and if there is a .mcr file included, it often requires rigid path structure to work. This little script creates macroscripts to run .ms or .mse files, the files themselves can be placed basically anywhere and you can define how they show in the interface.

3DS Max Plugin Rename Modifiers

0 votes

In this video i will present you with two small scripts i created. one of them will reset the modifiers names to their default names. The second one will add the default names to the custom ones.
this is useful in case you have objects with many modifiers applied to them and these modifiers have custom names.

You can check my demo video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/ijK_BhxBAf8

gizmoControl

gizmoControl UI screenshot
This macroscript (to be found in the "MB Tools" category after executing the .mcr) will allow you to link the transformation of a modifier gizmo to some other scene object. Afterwards, the gizmo will always be fully aligned to that other scene object, which can be freely animated by any kind of controller and linked to any other scene node. In some way this is very similar to World Space Modifiers but it works for any kind of modifier gizmo.

This tool can be very useful for creating complex modifier animations, for example animating a Slice modifier's plane along a path, attaching a UVW Map modfier to some animated helper object, transforming a Displace modifier with some other object, or having an extra node control the- symmety plane of a Symmetry modifier.

Simple tool that mimics Maya procedures (Search and Replace, Jason Schleifer´s hashRename) to easily organize naming conventions in scene nodes.

MiniListener Focus

6 votes

Sets keyboard focus to the MiniListener input field. If you want to use it, run the .mcr file once via Scripting -> Run Script or by drag&dropping it to the viewport. It creates an item in the Shortcuts category under Customize UI, which you can then assign a shortcut to.
