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.

This script animates a parented wheel, it's rotation along travelling path, and a steering rotation.


Strip Paths from Bitmaps

3 votes

Removes current paths from all bitmaps in the scene. Primarily for getting rid of irrelevant paths on files recieved from users on other systems.

This functions in a similar way to stripping paths manually in asset tracking, but when doing that I've found that it can lag a lot and sometimes fail to strip some of the paths until you do it multiple times.

Bad paths can cause lag when Max tries to search for the missing textures, especially when they're pointing to a nonexistent network location.

Pathstribute is a 3ds Max plugin which gives users the ability to distribute a mesh along any number of splines. Users are given a variety of controls to adjust the number of clones, the placement of the copies, scale, and the rotation. All controls support animation.

Animate street moving and racetracks in 3ds Max

0 votes


The script "Trajectory" animates a single vehicle on the street or racetrack.
It updates the bodie's z_rotation, front weels' z_rotation, wheels' y_rotation and
car's position.
Supports acceleration (acceleration control), time control, creation of custom car rigs,shortest distance or higher speed moving path, engine audio.
The audio need to be tuned and maybe improved in next editions.
In newer versions of 3ds Max you need to click 2 times in the viewport, when you create the 1 st vertex of the shapes (arcs and lines - watch the video).
