INSTALLATION:In 3dsMax, goto MAXScript -> Run Script, and run the file you downloaded above “Relink Bitmaps v2.##.mzp“
This tool is available to the community for free, but I kindly request if you see the value in time this tool saves you, that you donate whatever you can to help me pay off student loans. Every donation helps immensely. I do however understand that we’re all in this mess somehow and I understand if you aren’t able to donate immediately at this time. To donate simply click the “Donate!” button on the script. I am suggesting $10 for an individual, but whatever you can spare will insure the future development of this script and updates.
Tested thoroughly with (32-bit and 64-bit): Max 9-2015
CoronaBitmap / CoronaProxy / CoronaLight support added (this didn’t get added to 2.08 even though I meant it to).
Changed the functionality of the read-only browse (because I didn’t like how I did it last verison)
Fixed the stupid error with the “RemindMe=” bug that users experienced when they pressed “Remind Me in a week”
Octane render is still impossible for me to support at the moment, they handled filenames strangely. Contact them if you want support added, my forum name on their forums is colinsenner.
Corona Render Fully supported
Browse buttons are Read-only share friendly
Attempted to support Octane Render, but the way they are exposing their custom map types like Image_Texture are not in line with any other plugin I’ve seen, if you want Octane support, it’d be best to contact them on their forums or email directly to help me resolve the issue, they were unhelpful when I attempted to contact them to resolve this. My forum name on Octane forums is colinsenner.
