Download FREE Project Manager v.3.10.32 for 3ds Max 2014 – 2021 Full version for Mac !
EXPLORER TAB FEATURES
Perhaps the most heavily used tab, the “Models Tab” lets users merge 3D files using a variety of options, as well as replace, export, and render existing models.
Project Manager also features support for Substance textures, as well as interactive rendering previews for IES files and materials. Also plugin is compatible with all 3DS Max image file formats (including PSD, Vrimg, and others), and allows for convenient thumbnail views for image and file libraries.
CATALOGUING AND SEARCHING
Among Project Manager’s main features are easy library cataloguing, easy model merging, file data customization and database syncing (which will be useful for teamwork on large-scale animation projects).
Project Manager’s intuitive search feature allows users to locate and import files by name, description, and tags.
Descriptions and tags can be added to MAX, IES, and other image files. Project Manager makes dealing with complex 3DS projects a lot more convenient by reducing virtual clutter and dividing assets, textures, models, and more into categories that specifically make sense to the user.
The various tabs available in Project Manager also feature a “Favorites” folder that you can use to keep your recently used or frequently updated files.
ASSET TRACKING SYSTEM
Using the Project Manager you can be sure that you have a complete control over external links into your scenes.
Asset tracking features include support for XREF files and easy linking with external files.
Files may also be discriminated by type and/or renamed in accordance with masks.
Besides, files that are linked to selected objects are displayed in Interactive Mode, and bitmap textures can be toggled and placed within the Material Editor.
Note that Project Manager supports the highest number of asset types of any plug-in. For example, Project Manager is the only plugin that can display and relink Vray Lens effects, even with missing bitmaps. Besides, scenes may be archived and easily sent to render services such as RebusFarm.
The Batch Render&Relink tool helps manage your asset files into the 3D model and material libraries in Batch Mode. BR&R is capable of rendering thumbnails for 3D models, materials, and IES photometric files.
Batch Mode makes for an easy way to gather and compile many assets at once.
SAVING TIME AND EFFORT ON PRACTICAL, REAL-WORLD APPLICATIONS
With Project Manager, any project assets such as models, materials, textures, and even lights can be stored, categorized, and browsed for easy access on future related projects.
This greatly reduces production times and frustration. With Project Manager, you can easily pick up on your project where you left off.
Many scenes may use common models, materials and textures. For example, video games and animation models frequently re-use the same assets with slight modifications.
Larger scenes are created from multiple instances of common environmental objects such as plants, furniture, and other architectural and environmental elements.
Another common application would be a project that utilizes many human models. Many of these models may be duplicated with different skins to create more characters, or re-sized and mixed with various materials and textures for other body types.
Easy copying, merging, and customization for similar models cuts project production times significantly. Design projects, as well as animation and engineering projects, take significant time to create, render, and test.
Therefore, any plugins that reduce required effort are valuable.
