i've searched around to no avail trying to find a maxscript similar to the xy shrinkwrap melscript for maya.

has anyone come across one?

When refering to tools of other packages you should post details about what you want. I have no idea WTH maya xy shrinkwrap is so if you want my help you need to provide more information.

i apologise.i'll elaborate(.i've never used maya in my life but have seen this melscript in action.)

Basically it will conform the verts of a low res mesh to that of a high res mesh providing the silhouettes are for example:a retopoed mesh could be "shrank" to the high res sculpt that it was retopoed from.

You could try Paul Hormis' shrinkwrap ( script.

cheers Eric,i just spent the last hour trawling scriptspot and didn't come across this. Paul Hormis's site seems to be down these days which is a pity as i remember he used to host some super innovative reactor/cloth vids.

i will try this script.thanks.
