CgTalk Maxscript Challenge 006: "Object Photo Album"

CgTalk Maxscript Challenge 006: "Object Photo Album"

DESCRIPTION: Create a tool that focuses on each object in a scene and renders each object as a seperate image. For example, if there are three spheres in a scene you would end up with a folder containing three images, one of each object. You can either render the object or viewport snap it.

INTERMEDIATE SCRIPTERS: Embed the images in a HTML document and add information about each object (poly count, textures etc.)

ADVANCED SCRIPTERS: Compile the whole thing (scene, images and html document) into it's own folder or zip file, ready for "release". Consider this like a tool to keep track of finished max files in a development environment.


  • Code from scratch. Try not to use pre-exisitng functions or plugins.
  • Show your script references, if any (eg. Looking at another script to assist you).
  • You are encouraged to ask for help where needed, but try to do it on your own. The maxscript reference is an invaluable resource.
  • Post your final script inside [CODE] tags (located on your posting toolbar).
  • Post all code into THIS thread.
  • Post the max version you coded in, plus any maxscript extensions you used. (Thanks galagast!)
  • Try to finish the challenge in a week. There is no definite time limit.
  • Voting will occur at the end of each 'month' (every 4 challenges).
NOTES: None this week... I feel it's pretty straightforward. If you don't know HTML, it's not too hard to learn, there's numerous sites on how to write simple code for this. Remember to vote for the first 4 challenges:
