Version History

Version Number Version Description


- Added support for Max 2021 - 2022 - Added support for OSL Maps - Fixed bug in 2.13 in which VRayBitmaps wasn't showing as missing.


• Fix script error for run_count_2_08.php • Arnold Renderer support added • Some users reported waiting a long time for the script to launch: this was because of the Auto-Update check and Run count php script. Relink Bitmaps, when ran, checked to see if there was an updated version from this site and also incremented a counter (run_count_2_08.php) to keep track of runs. • All WebRequests sent to this site have been removed except Auto-Update which has been moved to a button.


• Fixed bug where Relink Bitmaps wouldn't launch • Fixed bug with 'Search Max File Path' option • Resizable missing bitmaps window (finally)


Changelog: Added support for FStorm Render – Bitmaps/Lights/Proxies, thanks to Nikita Gushchin! Fixed the “$directory not recognized” error [NEW] Option to automatically search the Max scene directory
