Relink Bitmaps is a script to easily relink all missing files (Bitmaps, VRayMeshes, Mental Ray Proxies, VRayHDRI, IES, etc).

General Usage Instructions

Open an Autodesk® 3ds Max® scene that is missing bitmaps/proxies/ies lights/anything.

Run 'Relink Bitmaps' (Relink Bitmap button can be seen under Exchange Store Menu, refer screenshot "Menu")

Click "Browse" to select a place for Relink Bitmaps to search for the missing maps

Click "Relink"

You can add paths that you use often to easily select from.  




The installer that ran when you downloaded this plug-in from Autodesk App Store has already installed the plug-in. You may need to restart the Autodesk product to activate the plug-in. To uninstall this plug-in, click Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features (Windows 7/8.1/10) or Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs, and uninstall as you would any other application from your system.

Additional Information

This tool is available to the community for free, but I kindly request if you see the value in time this tool saves you, that you donate whatever you can to help me pay off student loans. 

Every donation helps immensely.  I do however understand that we’re all in this mess somehow and I understand if you aren’t able to donate at this time.  To donate simply click the “Donate!” button on the script.  I am suggesting $10 for an individual, but whatever you can spare will insure the future development of this script and updates.
