Using the FilePathFinder you can be sure that you have complete control over external links into your scenes.

Asset tracking features include support for XREF files and easy linking with external files.

Using the FilePathFinder (and Batch Render&Relink), you can search for missing assets and relink external files.

In addition, files that are linked to selected objects are displayed in Interactive Mode, and bitmap textures can be toggled and placed within the Material Editor.

Also with this tool, you can easily make an archive a 3ds Max scene.

Note that FilePathFinder supports the highest number of asset types of any plug-in.


The Batch Render&Relink tool helps manage your asset files into the 3D model and material libraries in Batch Mode.

BR&R is capable of rendering thumbnails for 3D models, materials, and IES photometric files.

Batch Mode makes for an easy way to gather and compile many assets at once.

Mass rename links and files

Current version supports to rename only one file and external link using the menu-item "Rename Link&File" as on video below at time 25:10.

But  3rd version of Project Manager ( and later the FilePathFinder) will have ability to mass rename links and files.

Please generate the bug report (menu "Help" ==>> "Create support Request")
If you can not run the FilePathFinder, then start the script SupportRequest.mse by dragging it into viewport.
You can find it in this directory

Thanks for bug-report.

Maybe you're using an older

Maybe you're using an older version of the Project Manager and run it before running the new version of FilePathFinder.

Restart the 3ds max and try again.
It must work.

Not reccomend for using the PM and FPF on one session of 3ds max.
The Project Manager have all features of FilePathFinder and has not reason for using both programs on one computer.
