Relink Assets

37 votes

Hi this is my version of a tool for relinking (missing) bitmaps which can not be found for whatever reasons (changed paths, moved files etc.). It is pretty straightforward and works with almost any type of asset (maps, HDRIs, IES files) as long as it can be referenced and seen in the asset browser. Due to copyright restrictions I can not publish the code right now but I hope that it can help you anyways until max itself has a better management for assets.

Vray HDRI Light

A new tool useful for those who often use VrayDome Light with a VrayHDRI texmap pluged-in. You simply locate the HDR map on your computer, and the script generate a VrayDome light with your HDR file. The HDR is also display in the viewport and you can rotate it by rotating the VrayDome light. There is an additional parameter on the VrayDome light that allows you to enabled or disabled the HDR in the viewport.

 

Vray HDRI Viewer

Vray HDRI Viewer is a simple and quick way of getting your HDRI's into your scene. Please note that for every HDRI the viewer requires an equivalent jpg file sized at 1000x500. I will be releasing a photoshop action to make this a little easier.

To intstal, use the maxscript menu > run script. You will then find it in "Catagory > shawvfx"
