      Project Manager - Fast mode for Batch Relinking. Fuzzy searching associated thumbnails

      Batch Relink multiple files using new “Fast Mode”

      Now you can batch relink multiple 3D files such as MAX and Material Libraries without opening them. This method of relinking extremely faster when traditional.
      However, this method has some limitations. Information about used external links doesn’t available for some renderers and plug-ins such as Maxwell. If your renderer or plugin does not support the recommended by Autodesk method for writing data about textures to a file, then you should use the standard method for relinking with opening files. To do this, simply turn off the “Fast Mode”.

      Auto-Assign Preview

      The tool “Auto-Assign Preview” gains new features to simplify and extend abilities to auto-linking preview thumbnails to 3D asset files.

      Ignore Suffix for Material/Model Filename

      The new method “Ignore Suffix for Material/Model Filename” allows linking files in the next situation. If your models, for example, called “plant_vray.max” or “plant_corona.max“, and the preview has the name “plant.jpg“. Just choose this option and use the following settings.

      Separators: <whitespace><-> <_>
      Suffix: <letters> or for the example above, you can use <vray> <corona>

      Fuzzy Search

      But the most interesting thing is how to bind the preview with the model which filename is very different?
      For example, preview file that called as “B _ & _ B_Italia_196642_Chaise_longue_preview.jpg
      with files with names such as “bebitalia_1966_42_mr.max“, “bebitalia_1966_42_vray.max” and “bebitalia_1966_42.3ds“.

      You can use the following settings.
