Doom Spline Resizer - draw line with precise lenght

3 votes

This simple script will let you draw precise lines quickly almost as a CAD software!
It will Set the pivot to the first vertex of a shape object and align it to the first segment. A window will show up allowing to set the Lengh of a spline scaling from the first vertex.

You can find the mcr script in the Category:"# Scripts"
The .ms script will just load on RUN

USAGE:
For best use associate the script to a Key button (es. D that is free by default)
You can add a toolbar button found in "# Scripts" category

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.

Time-Ranger

Sets up time-ranges in Max and embeds it to the max file.

Very useful tool when you have multiple time-ranges in your single animation file. Mostly used for games - but can be used for many other purposes as well.

Sometimes it's useful to have many animations of a character in one file - so its start and end positions match between the different animations. TimeRanger lets you choose which section of the animation to show in the timeline.

Select spline segments by matID

0 votes

With this script you can select splines' segments by matID.
There are two methods of selection:
- "Use IDs of selected segments" - select some segments and press the [Select] button. The script will find the matIDs of the selected segments and will select all other segments with the same matIDs.
- "Use IDs typed below" - type as many matIDs as you want in the field(separate matIDs with comma) and press the [Select] button. The script will select all segments with the matIDs entered by you.

Detach Splines

Breaks the selected shape object (Line or Editable Spline) into as many objects as there were splines in the original object. Unlike the other explode scripts, this one doesn't try to rebuild the splines point by point and instead duplicates the object and deletes all the other splines, which means they all keep the original attributes like material, material ID, interpolation settings, renderable settings and so on.
