Script makes instances of picked main object from all selected objects.
Target objects can be replaced (deleted, primary script function) or leave untouched.
New objects can copy scale or rotation from their previous versions.

Exaples:
Have some copies of some object (not instances) and want them change all same way.
- Convert them to instances, change them at once by editing just one.

Want to make instances of main object at every object's position from selection

Small but very useful script for selected instances objects

- select only visible instances objects
- work fast, support undo
- work of script would be broken by pressing Escape button

for install you should drag&drop script into 3ds Max
Find it in Customize -> Customize user interface -> Toolbars.

I wrote this script for a CGI animation short film I'm working on, for which I needed a fast and simple way to build a very modular environment, while still retaining control over everything.

This script gives you that control:

pick your source geometry, increase/decrease the slider values after selecting whether you want copies or instances, and either collapse or create controllers, or both.
you can create one parent controller and a child controller for each instance, or just one parent, or just only children.

compatible only with editable poly objects.

Scatter a list of objects across a surface, you can make them randomly change the scale, rotation and tilt. For example placing trees, plants, rocks, etc.
