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.

PRT Updater/Manager

2 votes

A tool I wrote to manage multiple PRT Loaders in a scene. It was especially useful for updating files when I was using one cache for multiple loaders with an offset, since Instancing wasn't an option. Aside from that, there are simple controls to update some of the main PRT Loader attributes quickly and on multiple loaders.

Here's a quick demonstration video of the tool >>> https://vimeo.com/130000485

Cheers!

duberPython

0 votes

A first public release of duberPython, a dotNET plugin that bridges MAXScript and Python scripting, is finally available.

A battle tested plugin used by such as Pixomondo or Orbit Studio, can be yours!

The main purpose for this plugin is the ability to communicate with Python APIs, such as Shotgun (for which there is also a wrapper that I wrote, available on request) or Tactic, or your Python tools of choice!

The plugin takes care of all the necessary data type conversions so that strings in MAXScript are strings in Python, booleans in MAXScript are booleans in Python etc...
