Scene Notes helper

49 votes

There is many manners to save notes to the scene. Usually I put notes to dummy helpers with descriptive names and location to remind me something for concrete object, layer or the whole scene, so I use multiple targets to hold my notes, and any 'popup' persistent callbacks not sound good to me. Also I intend to control which of them to see on loading, so, this helper plugin is written mainly for my workflow, but hope it`s welcome to someone else.

Note Helper

This little scripted plugin is aimed at improvement of teamwork-workflow.
It allows you to place notes in the scene wich you can handle like any other Max object (link, animate, ect). That way you can just leave some remarks directly in the scene, where it matters, to prevent possible confusion and improve the workflow and thereby the resulting product.

Geo Spline Helper

-5 votes

This is a geo spline I've create for 3ds max. Right now it displays a pop up dialog when the script is run, from there you can create a geo spline. I'm working on making it a scripted spline plugin. That will allow users to create it similar to when you create a circle or rectangle spline. If anyone knows how to go about doing that feel free to modify the script and then upload here to script spot.

Tape Annotate

fixed toggle on and off functionality.

Displays tape-length information in the viewport.

Effects all tapes currently visible. Displays the user defined tape length at the base of the tape and the distance to the target at the target. Updates in real-time.


I work in inches, so displaying "in." is hard-coded. Change that part ("+" in."")of the code, or remove it to make it go away.
