View Full Version : Backup save script

03 March 2005, 09:55 AM

This is my first script I'm posting, I hope somebody finds it useful. :)

everytime you save a max scene, this copies the same file in
backup directory with incrementing sequence number
(adds itself as a post-save callback)

how to use:
just run the script (or add it into startup script)

You can get it from and follow the maxscript link...

I find a selection of simple callbacks like this one can really help personal work, and the worlflow of a company. One I wrote opens a short quesionaire on what the user plans to do when they open a file, then it assigns these detials with times and details to the file properties. This way everyone knows what they did on the file :)

Nice one man, your one could save some serious time if files are corrupted or lost!

Keep em coming,

Take care,
