My Top 3DS MAX Scripts Part 1

I have been using scripts in 3dsmax now for a couple of years, I now wonder how I ever lived without out them. I am going to post up my top scripts available, some are simple and can be written by anyone some are more advance, Here are my First 3.

Classic File Menu for Max 2010

Simply, this restores the file menu which disappeared in Max 2010, its far from perfect, the recent opened files does stop working after a while but apart from that works well and is a lot quicker than the addition of the big button in the top left.

Relink Bitmaps

Relink Bitmaps is a script to easily relink all missing files (Bitmaps, VRayMeshes, Mental Ray Proxies, VRayHDRI, IES, etc) when they change directories or when you move computers, check out the short video tutorial below for more detailed information.

Unlike some other scripts of its kind, this is free! There is a small donation link within the script if you choose to donate, I will remove the nag. It is a simple licensing system, that does not force you to transfer network cards or be connected to the internet and will work with all versions of Max that are supported by the script. If you choose to donate I'll be more than happy to license multiple computers as well.

Copy and Paste Objects

It's always annoyed me that I couldn't copy objects from one instance of max and paste them into another - as I work with 2 or 3 instances of max up at a time. It's tedious to do a save selected / merge objects so this script does it for you. It's not a TRUE copy/paste via the windows clipboard - but it will let you very quickly copy objects from one file to another.

Stay posted for some more of my favourite scripts.
