A couple of notes regarding the scripts on this page:
  • The compatibility mentioned here, refers only to the versions of max on which the script was tested. This does not mean it will not work on other version of max. If you happen to work with a script on a max version not mentioned here, please let me know so I can update this page.
  • Please see the script header or the readme file attached to the script for specific script information.
I hope you'll find those scripts useful. If you happen to use any of the scripts, especially in production, I'd appreciate a note about that. :)

ACP (Alternate Color Picker) and Color Palette
Back to top
Download      Version: 1.1     Compatibility: MAX 8
An alternate color picker and color palette manager.
colorPalette is a palette manager that works with ACP, but can also be used as a stand alone tool.
colorPalette supports the Adobe color file format (.aco), for both loading and saving.
** A note about colors importing from aco files: aco files allow the saving of each color swatch in it's own color space (RGB, CMYK, HSV, Lab, etc.) colorPalette does not support all of those color spaces, and some of those supported might results different colors than the ones seen in Adobe Photoshop, due to the fact that ACP and colorPalette do not use color profiles. For that reason, aco files saved with colorPalette, are always saved in RGB color space.

Included with colorPalette is a Pantone® palette.
** Another note, this time about the Pantone palette: this palette was created using a palette found on the web. This is what the original web page said:
"The authors of this color conversion chart offer no guarantees as to accuracy. The RGB and Hexadecimal colors are reasonably close. RGB and Hex colors on screen are an approximation to the Pantone spot colors that would be printed using the Pantone Formula Guide or Pantone Matching System (PMS Guide)."
Also note, that due to differences in screen color reprasentation, colors on screen will NOT look exactly the same on different systems. You should use this palette as a reference only, and use a printed official Pantone Matching System for final color decisions.
The Pantone palette is located in the (max_root)scriptsACPPalettes folder.

Download Version: 1.1 (2007-06-26 14:07:47)     Compatibility:MAX 8    
  • Color names are now shown next to the swatches in the color palette.

safeSave Tools

Due to a bug in max 4.x it is possible to overwrite files that are marked as read-only. safeSave tools are a set of tools to replace the max internal save functions, and solve this problem (until Discreet will fix it in future versions of max).

safeSave tools consists of four save tools:
  • safeSave - replaces the max save (file > save).
  • safeSaveAs - replaces the max save as (file > save as).
  • safeSaveSelected - replaces the max save selected (file > save selected).
  • safeSaveIncremental - replaces the max save incremental (the + in save as).
The tools are macroscripts so you can assign them to buttons, keys, quads and menus.

Download Version: 0.42 (2008-03-06 12:04:36)     Compatibility:MAX 8,MAX 9,MAX 2008,MAX 2009    
  • Fixed some bugs so it can work with more recent versions of 3ds Max.
Download Version: 0.4 (2005-07-01 03:40:13)     Compatibility:MAX 5    
  • Fixed some minor bugs.
  • The small dialog is now dockable (idea by John Pruden).

  • Added an uninstaller script.
  • Added support for group time tracking via network (idea by Brad Thompson).
    How does group time tracking work? Simple, you can now specify the location of the data folder. If you have several users set to the same data folder the data files will be shared.
    All you need to do to set it up, is add these two lines to the timeTracker.ini file on each computer running timeTracker:
    [Directories]
    dataDir=S:\timeTracker\data\

Time Wheely
Back to top
Download      Version: 1.81     Compatibility: MAX 9,MAX 2008,MAX 2009
Allows to use the mouse wheel to scroll the time slider.
Also includes a struct for using the mouse wheel, that scripters can use in their own scripts.
History:
Download Version: 1.81 (2008-02-19 15:34:23)     Compatibility:MAX 9,MAX 2008,MAX 2009    
  • Added another option to the INI file: useModifierKeys.
  • Changed it so the INI settings are updated whenever the script is activated and not just on max start.
Download Version: 1.7 (2008-02-15 14:41:12)     Compatibility:MAX 9,MAX 2008,MAX 2009    
  • Added support for settings in an ini file. The file should be placed in the 3dsmax_root/scripts folder, and in should be named mouseWheely.ini
    For now there are only two options available:
    • StickyMode - setting this to false will turn off the sticky mode.
    • Divider - defines the number by which the raw value from the mouse wheel is divided. A lower value will cause a more \"sensitive\" scroll.
    Here\'s an example that will mimic the defaults (if no file is defined, or an option is not defined, the default for that option is used):
    [Settings]
    Divider=120
    StickyMode=true
Download Version: 1.6 (2008-02-15 14:37:32)     Compatibility:MAX 9,MAX 2008,MAX 2009

Download Version: 1.4 (2008-02-13 08:50:29)     Compatibility:MAX 9,MAX 2008,MAX 2009    
  • Added an option to keep the event window open. This is slightly better, performance-wise (not noticable), but a bit riskier, as windows might stay open until max is closed.
Download Version: 1.3 (2008-02-13 08:47:23)     Compatibility:MAX 9,MAX 2008,MAX 2009    
  • Fixed a serious bug with the macroscript that caused errors when starting max.
Download Version: 1.2 (2008-02-13 08:46:33)     Compatibility:MAX 9,MAX 2008,MAX 2009
