Version 0.5

Fixed all those issues, can't repeat the visibility problem you're having, fixed a few other little issues. Should be mostly working now.

Great idea! Thanks, done some interesting dev on this today... Think you're going to like what I've come up with.

I might add showInterfaces $ to that wishlist, if that doesn't make things too cluttered. Feature creep can be deadly to good UI design.

Dave I had the script open on a sphere and then added a standard material and ended up with this error. Some sort of update problem I think
Max 2012 64bit



oh ps this script is brilliant :-)

A new version to test out, lots of extra bits in there.

As the VRay Object Properties are also modal I decided to put a tab in for them also, added Adv Lighting and Mental Ray tabs to complete the set. Got the ShowInterfaces function in the maxscript tab as well now.

The only issue at the moment is there aren't animation key brackets on the visibility spinner, but you can change time and this will update, not a good idea to have the tool open whilst playing though.

Once I've got some feedback regarding bugs I'll put it up as a proper MCR file so that you can use it in your quad menus to replace the old standard one.

Supurb script. Definitely my most used script in the last few days.
Is it possible to get attached xref and filelink info from the selected object?
Keep up the good work

For the life of me I can't find this information. Autodesk has it hidden! I don't know why they don't have this information about the Filelink geometry. For that matter I am researching if XREF geometry can have property information. No such luck yet. Anyway keep up the good work and loving Object Properties 2.0.

So here we are, version 1.0 released, not 100% bug-free but in keeping with Autodesks' style, I'm releasing it anyway!

It's now a lovely macroscript so you can put it in your quad menu and find it exactly where you expect to be. Enjoy the loveliness of not having to constantly open and close the object properties window, enjoy not having to open a separate VRay window to set up object properties. Enjoy being able to easily animate the visibility without going crazy!

Trying to learn maxscript? (then you should be reading my blog) but there's a maxscript tab which tells you loads more information than you ever thought there was in 3dsmax.

If you find a bug it is your duty to tell me or I'll come to your house and steal all your carpets.

For instruction on how to install and known issues etc.. open the file in notepad or any other text-based program...

[new version a few posts down with a bug fix]

so coool! thanks

is it possible to make window resizable? would be useful for maxscript tab (as well as search option)
 
Old 08 August 2012   #30
Very nice!

I know the script isn't encrypted, but can we consider it open-source too? And if so, under which license?
