mr Options Manager | You can do it! VFX mr Options Manager adds support in 3ds Max for Unified Sampling, Progressive Rendering, IBL, Importons and Irradiance Particles, which are hidden string options.

HoHa Camera HandHeld Hello. Here is another script for the community. I was looking for a good camera shake - handheld generator for 3ds max. What this script does is pretty straight forward: Make the hand held effect. This script can handle both Vray camera and Normal camera, both with target or without target. It support undo, and to delete all keyframe of the selected camera. You can also animate the camera first, then apply the shake in a time range within. Usage: Pick the camera - support Free & target Normal camera, Free & target Vray Physical Camera. It currently doesn't support camera animated by path constraint. Anyone who has any idea to improve the script, please drop me a line. Tested on 3ds max 2012. ChangeLog: Ver 1.2: Change the numbers from interger to float --> enable to make smaller changes to the coordinates. Ver 1.1a: Ver 1.1: Added a checkbox to make the shake on an Animation layer. titane357's Idea. Regards. Hoang Ha Version Requirement: It might be able to run on most of max.

MAXScript et VrayProxy | matt guetta Ce sera le premier tuto MAXScipt du blog! Rien de bien prétentieux, au contraire, juste une petite intro vous permettant de gagner du temps sans forcement « vraiment » apprendre MAXScript! La Manica Lunga Library, m’a donné pas mal de fil à retordre pour une raison simple, le nombre d’objets présent dans la scène. Du coup, je me suis servi de MAXScript pour automatiser les actions simples et récurrentes de la création de la scène. Avant de commencer la scène, j’ai placer un certains nombre de livres à la main, forcement c’est devenu compliquer de les sélectionner pour ensuite les afficher en box étant donne que l’option « bounding box » n’est plus accessible… Comme vous ne le savez peut-être pas, je viens du Web, et la productivité se résume parfois à réduire le nombre de clics pour accomplir une tache. Avant de commencer à appréhender la bête, (je mets pas apprendre, j’ai pas franchement le sentiment d’être capable de vous apprendre MAXScript) voici deux petites notions de base.

Spline Geo import (kml, GPX and csv geographic coordinates) to 3ds MAX Author Name: Mario Morais Import CSV and import Geo (kml, GPX) to 3ds MAX Importing data to 3ds max is fundamental to try to reproduce the real world in3d environment.I made two scripts spline CSV IO (Import/Export) and Import Geo. Install: Copy files to /scripts/startup Use: go to “utilities” tab (hammer) –> MAXscripts->Utilities The script import Geographic coordinates (longitude,latitude and Altitude). KML Path: Import a Path from Google Earth. For the first import the script creates an object called “TRACK_CENTER_MESH”. Motec CSV Import csv from motec i2 software. skip points: GPS devices collect too many points near each other. Import Images Tiles Import images tiles and create a Editable Poly. “Don’t calculate Center”: Don’t calculate the new center. Spline: Define the spline parameters.

Changsoo Eun - animBoost back to home animBoost v0.8 What is it animBoost is a set of maxscript that boost viewport performance for animated mesh. What it does Recently I found out that 3ds max still evaluates an object's modifier stack even though the object is hidden. animBoost is an workaround for this problem. animBoost keeps monitoring scene and selectively turns on/off modifier when object is unhidden/hidden. animBoost supports 3ds max 2009+ How to install Download zip file. Each 3ds max installation may have different folder location. getdir #scripts getdir #ui *** installation for 3ds max 2013 **** Since 3ds max 2013, 3ds max folder structure has been changed. Threrfore, after you unzip the package, you need to go in "ui" folder and copy "usermacros" folder to user "usermacros" folder. getdir #usermacros How to use Launch 3ds max. "turn on animBoost" will show up as "animBoost_On" button. Now all you need to do is click "animBoost_On" button. animBoost also support a "manual mode". v0.8 Update v0.7 Update

random This is a 3dsMax manager tool, preferably for Vray users, very useful for editing architectural models created with other software (eg. ArchiCAD) and fast scene setup. Very useful tools for Selection, Rendering, Incremental Rendering, Copy/Paste objects from other scenes, Material Replacer, Animation with Moving Objects, Exporting/Importing Vray Proxy with material and so on... Z MNG VR - The manager for working with Vray Free Zbrush Hair to Spline's plugin for 3D Max 'Wayne's Poly to Splines' 3D Max plug-in (Free) Link: Well as a personal thank you to all the zbrush users that were so positive about the mudbox videos and realised they are just as useful to them, and also didn't insult me or start ww3.... Here's a little thank you for those of you that use 3D Max. Its something I knocked out in an hour tonight that takes imported zbrush hair and converts it into splines so that they can be used with to comb max hair and fur. It operates in a single click and includes a very basic installation and usage PDF....if there are any spelling mistakes or typos don't blame me as I wrote the damn thing in 5 mins lol. I can't stick this on zb central as I've been banned for 'daring to use mudbox' now for over 3 1/2 years lol.
