FumeFX Presets Tool

A Simple Tool for speeding intial creation of fumefx. Also has some handing presets for the beginner and the casual effects artist.

Hope you find useful!

BUG: Creating Fumefx Containers via maxscript breaks the preview window, unfotuantly i cannot fix this bug :(. The work around however (and im sorry is a little irratating), is the restart max after you have saved the max file.

Enjoy!

Create Animation Bounding Box

15 votes

Script I built to work with Fume FX, but can probably be used for many other things.
The idea is that I wanted to roughly work out the entire dimensions of a characters animation, so a bounding box - of the entire animation.
Lets say I have a character running, and jumping, and falling over - and I want him to be on fire, this tool will track all of the dimensions of the character for the entire animation duration and build a bounding box representing the exact area he's covered.
This way I can create a fairly accurate Fume FX container that isn't wasting space.

FumeFX Grid Settings Deep Copy

0 votes

This script copies settings from one grid to another. It does not touch output paths, size etc, but it'll merge the other parameters from one grid to one or more other grids. Handy if you have a lot of grids, do a change in one and need to apply the same changes to all the other grids.

Current version has a couple of limitations. It does not support copying all effectors and keys from colors.
