A CMD utility to externally re-path 3ds Max files

0 votes

This is a simple tool I wrote in IronPython and compiled to a usable .exe program for re-pathing or examining 3ds Max (.max and .mat) files without actually running 3ds Max.

It's pretty useful for batch re-pathing before rendering on render farms, for example. Or just to view what type of files are being linked in your .max and .mat scene files and material libraries, respectively.

A spline based rig. An alternative approach to using PathDeform with more control over twist and scale.

1. Create a straight Spline - every vertex on that spline will be a helper to control the position
2. Run Script
3. Pick Spline
4. Adjust X Y Z to align the orientation of the box to your spline
5. Adjust width and length
6. Set twist helpers - this controls the amount of helpers to control twist and scale
7. Subdivisions - this controls the final resolution of your mesh
8. Press Go

Was trying to animate tank treads simpler, so I searched and found Jeff Brown's Chain Tread script. After using it I wanted to create a simpler way to increase, decrease or stop the speed of the treads on the fly. Thus I created this script.
