Delete UnRemovable Layer

1 vote

It may happen to you that you wanna remove an empty layer that you created before but delete option is grayed out in layer-manager and you no longer able to remove that layer. just remember that 3Ds Max never let you delete a layer while it contain some nodes nor default layer called “0”. but in some rare situations even an empty layer that you created and then you have done with it and want to delete it, but 3Ds Max not let you do that. It’s happen because of some unclassified nodes that came with your imported models from other programs, so you can’t see them in viewport and not in layer manager too. The only way to get rid of them is to select that Nodes from MaxScript and delete them manually so layer’s delete option will back again.

Power Masker

The 3dsmax UI only allows you to set material effects ID up to 16 channels. The VRayMtl allows you to go beyond this using the effects ID override but other types of materials don't have any UI to adjust this. This tool using a backdoor into 3dsmax to set the effects ID beyond the 16 limit imposed by the UI.

This means you can create masks for every material in your scene. Using this tool you can either assign effects IDs by hand or just press to automatically create them and their mask render elements.

CAT Pose Grabber

1 vote

A panel to support CAT rigs which allows temporary storage and retrieval of a single or muliple poses. Poses are not named and there is no management of them. The idea is that you simply want to grab a pose (or several) and use it immediately, without dealing with names or folder structures for fluid workflow. Poses saved are stored as files and are thererfore persistent unless overwritten using the script store functions.

Features include:
- Supports multiple CAT rigs in the same scene. You can even transfer poses from one rig to another.

Finally 3ds max 2015 introduced nested layer and Scene Explorer based new Layer Explorer.

 

I think it is one of the the most important update for years. Of course being the first version. it has some rough edges. I hope this script smooth out the rough edges a little bit.

 

Some of scripts are for old layer manager functionality. Some of scripts are for nested layers. Some of scripts are for frequent user request items.
