Some of the scripts and plugins I’ve been using.
Bulk rename utility
Free to download Bulk rename utility does what is says. It invaluable for fixing the names of broken file sequences. The UI is a little complex but it’s very versatile once you get used to it.
Greeble the legendary detailing plugin. Great for mocking things up quickly.
wrapit is great for retopologising hi res meshes in max
BerconMaps procedural materials for Max: Wood, Noise, Tile, Gradient and Distortion. All of them are 3D maps except for Tile. They will work with scanline, V-Ray, finalRender and Brazil… BUT alas not Mental Ray.
clone is a free plugin that does what it says on the tin. I’ve been using it production. It’s stable and a great time saver.
Radial Symmetry not free but super cheap ($20) an awesome time saver and a great creative tool
