      Open the Material Libraries and 3Ds Max files in the Material Browser. Smarter Search for Preview Thumbnails

      Project Manager keeps receiving new upgrades and features.
      In version 3.18.34, you can now open both Material Library files and 3ds Max files in the Material Browser. The preview search with the Auto-Assign Previews tool has also been upgraded. The fuzzy mode now uses a smarter filename matching algorithm.


      A file can now be opened in the Material/Map Browser from the menu. To open a file from the Material Library, select the file in the treeview under the Materials category and choose the “Open in Material/Map Browser” option. Similarly, to open materials from a 3ds Max file, select the scene file from the list in the Models tab. This will open the Material/Map Browser dialog box showing all the materials from the selected scene.
      * This feature is available in 3Ds Max 2021 and above.

      The Auto-Assign Previews tool is designed to search for previews of model and material files.
      The new version has an improved preview search, with the fuzzy mode now using a smarter filename matching algorithm.
      Select the Fuzzy Search mode and choose a matching level from the Difference drop-down menu (we recommend using Similar or Very Similar). When required, add the words and symbols to be ignored during search (for example, <preview><_>).
      Regular expressions (regexes) are also supported.

      To match the following previews and 3dsMax files

      d2458163_3dh_00005_model01.max -> 00005_model01_02.png
      a2458124_3dh_00007_model02.max -> 00007_model02_01.png
      a2458124_3dh_00007_model02.max -> 00007_model02_02.png

      use these settings:
      Filename match: Fuzzy
      Ignore:<regex:[0-9,a-z]*_[0-9,a-z]*_>
      Difference: Very Similar

      Clearly, these image names contain some “junk”, which should be excluded. To do this, we use a regex expression to remove the prefixes “d2458163_3dh_”, “a2458124_3dh_” and the like.


      The new version also eliminates some pre-existing bugs.
      The errors with the Asset View dialog have been fixed. Also, an issue with saving selected objects in 3ds Max 2014 has been dealt with. The same goes for the issue with applying the activation keys. Finally, there are no more bugs with an opening the plugin in the scenes containing Anima objects.



      The full list of changes for this version is given below.
