3rd version of Project Manager gains a lot of new features to manage 3D Assets. 
What is most unique to the new features – is the ability to assign custom previews to materials, associate files with materials, and create a gallery of files associated with any type of assets including materials. 
You can also write a description for materials and, of course,  assign categories to materials.

By paying for russian goods, you finance the killing of Ukrainians. It's a really shame.

Sorry, but V-RayMax Converter Pro is the best of the converters.
It's a shame that your tool won't support this plugin.

Very nice tool, thank you!

Very nice tool, thank you! But I have a question (suggestion) - do you plan to integrate the V-RayMax Converter Pro plugin into your tool, following the example of LTR (Library Track/Relink)? That would be very convenient!

connecter vs Project Manager

We have used connecter and Project Manager for years and Connecter is (was) free it never gave us all the options and features we got with Project Manager.
