Hi all,

I already posted this a few days ago in the Max forum, but it is probably better placed here.
This is a continuation of the old Region Renderer Tool thread, which has been closed:

Alexander was kind enough to send me the source code for the MAXScript extension he used in the tool, and I've recompiled it for Max 2009, 2010 and 2011.

The big problem is the actual macroscript for the tool. Quite a lot has changed with the frame buffer since Max 9, and parts of the script need to be adapted / rewritten. I was hoping to do it myself, but I just haven't got enough time at the moment. I've done enough to know that it works just fine in the newer versions, unless you change renderers: then it crashes Max :o)

So the big question is if there is anyone out there that would like to update the macroscript so that I can release it? If you want to know what the script looks like, you can download it from the old thread. If you think you can do it, let me know and I'll send you the half-updated version together with the plugin it needs.

It would be really great to get this tool back out there!

Dave
