Creating UI for 3Ds Max Plugin


#1

I want to create my own UI for the plugins I’ve been working on. Of course, there is 3Ds Max’s default rollout option. But I want to add more to it. I want to create my own theme. Can anyone give me references to learn how to do it? I read about using dotNet but is that all?

do you need more functionality than built-in max rollout gives, or do you want to make a ui that looks completely different?

what is your goal?

Both, I want to add more functionality than built-in max rollout gives. Max has limited elements in rollout. And also I want to make a UI that looks completely different. Check out this plugin screenshot.https://cdn.80.lv/80.lv/uploads/2018/05/1-3.png

It is Pulze - Scene Manager

tool and plugin are different things… but anyway every tool in the main editor has to look as a part of the whole. IMHO

however, the best that you can use for making a custom UI is Qt

Thanks. I will look into that. :slight_smile:
