Move/Clone to cursor

3 votes

Hi, this is simple script which move or clone selected objects to surface under cursor. You can bind it to any hotkey (I usualy use Alt+S and Alt+C).

1.0.1

- initial releas

1.0.2

- settings can be binded to hotkey

- possibility to turn on random rotation in Z axis

1.0.3

- multiple object selection can be treated as object list, so in clone mode random object will be selected

- cloned objects can be automaticly moved to active layer

Select as many objects as you like and let InstancesToVRayProxy find any instanced objects and convert those instances to VRayProxies. InstancesToVRayProxy automatically outputs VRayProxy meshs (*.vrmesh files) to a given folder, creates VRayProxy objects and replaces the selected instances with instances of those VRayProxies. This may sound difficult but InstancesToVRayProxy will optimize your scene to do faster renderings and all you have to do is pick an output path and hit a button! Instanced VRayProxies only need to be loaded once per proxy mesh. This will cut down the setup time of your renderings.

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.

Select instances objects

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.

Copy modifiers

Simple tool for copy/instance modifiers from source object to selected array of objects. Does not copy only edite_poly modifier because 3dsmax does not allow doing this by script.
