ViewportRL script released

loocas | 3ds Max,maxscript | Saturday, February 2nd, 2008

Have you ever missed a “constant” (flat) viewport display mode? Well, thankfully it has been in Max for ages, however, the implementation isn’t as smooth and easy to use as it should be. Since I like this method for reviewing forms, especially during modeling, I wrote a simple function for toggling to and from the constant display mode and linked it to a macro so you can map it to your favourite keyboard shortcut (I use F5). There’s also an enhanced wireframe toggle function that you can re-assign (recommended) to F3 or whatever else you used to using for wireframe display.

The installation is as simple as dragging and dropping the .mzp file into your running 3ds Max application. Done, it’ll install and get ready for usage automatically. You can then assign any keyboard shortcut to the functions in the Customize > Customize UI window under “duber’s tools” category.

Download the duberRL installer and install as described above. ENJOY!

Here’s a preview video of how it works (I only pressed F3, F4 and F5):
