    Please continue to develop this wonderful tool...It would be useful to show a counter of the missing bitmaps to check it after the relink....

    Thanks!


  • A life saver script
    Simone Nastasi | September 04, 2018

    It never failed, it never disappointed. Rock solid, does its job, one of the first scripts I install on my 3dsmax installations.


  • Excellent plugin where 3dsmax 2019 falls short for the moment
    Joris Hoogstede | August 17, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Due to the very frustrating bug in the configuration of paths (limited amount) in 3dsmax 2019 someone pointed out to this plugin in the forum as a solution for the workflow.


  • Great script
    Dara Grehan | August 14, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Thanks Colin 🙂


  • Best 3ds max mapping file serch Tool!!
    Syeng Hyun | August 06, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    It is also very fast to set up the whole hard disk. It takes about 1 minute to complete it, and it is possible to set a few folders separately. Required to install first


  • Great plugin.
    Pawel Orzechowski | July 26, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Great plugin. 


  • Permanently on my toolbar, and use it daily!
    James Carson | July 20, 2018

    This script saves us a ton of time.  We work on different machines, connected to different networks, and this script saves us a ton of time.  We've had up to about 100 bitmaps in scenes, which would take forever to relink.  Thankfully Colin wrote this!

    There are a couple things it doens't find, but I've asked Colin to add them to the next release.  Fingers crossed they get added.  On the day of this review it doesn't realize bitmaps are missing from the VRayHDRI material, and it doesn't realize Subtance .sbar files are missiong.  Hoping these can be added, but if not, relinking those in 10 minutes isn't that big of a deal.

    Thanks Colin!

  • Makes 3ds max faster
    Petros Proestos | June 27, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I found this script useful now that for the moment

    3ds max 2019 don't support more than 80 map paths.

    But even if this will be fixed, I'' continue to use it

    because I found that makes 3ds max faster.

    thx.

  • One of the Best!
    Daragh Doyle | April 15, 2018

    Without a doubt one of the best scripts written for 3d Max. 

    It simply works and always has through the different versions.

    A script that I will use every day, it's excecution seems simple, but make no mistake, things would be very difficult with out this 'much have' script. 


  • Use it all the time!
    Harry Smith | April 02, 2018

    I think this is the 3rd or maybe 4th update I installed to this wonderful script. This is quite simply one of the most useful scripts for 3DS Max in my opinion.

  • The Swiss Army Knife for relink bitmaps
    Holger Drechsler | February 23, 2018

    I use Relink Bitmap since 6 years. All versions until now worked fine for me. The contact to Colin Senner is also very good. If you reorganise your folder structure and want to edit older projects this tool saves a lot of time, really worth to donate!


  • Saved my job!
    Ledian Kondi | February 17, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Thank you so much fo this!


  • Its a very Useful script that I am downloading for max 2018
    Tamjid Osman | February 14, 2018

    Adding multiple numerous paths to have the required bitmaps is slow and time consuming as I have a project folder with thousand of sub folder. this script do the work for me just by adding one project folder. Good Job!


  • Essential Tool

    I am re-activating a suspended 2012 project in a different computer recently and have been having nightmares re-linking the paths then i bump into this awesome script from you, saves my day.


  • My favorite script
    Les Chylinski | February 07, 2018

    I take advantage of a number of scripts in my work flow but this one is the one I value the most. I have no idea how this is not part of Max to begin with.


  • Hands down one of the best and most useful scripts
    H. Muster | February 03, 2018

    If you have to work a lot with external or bought 3d models, then this script will save you so much time.


  • Mindboggling
    Johan Groenewald | February 01, 2018

    How is this not part of 3dsMax to begin with? Simple, incredibly usefull, and such a time-saver. Thank you kind sir...


  • The Timesaver Script
    Ben Zikri | January 28, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I used this script all the time, and every time I keep myself thinking why Autodesk didn't thought about tht themselves? maybe they should hire this guy if only for that script :)


  • GREAT APP - BEST THAN THE ASSETTRACKING
    Lucas Santos | January 24, 2018

    This app just solved with a simple and quick tool all the scene missing bitmaps with one click. Much more quicker and easy to use than the default 3dsmax asset tracking.! thanks Colin Senner


  • really thank you alot
    Arch Rafat92 | January 22, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    its the best plugin ever


  • "tight" coding
    Richi Bering | January 18, 2018

    No problem sending this guy a few bucks for this script. It's worth so much more. I've been working with 3dsMax for 15 years, this is by far the easiest 'material link' script I've ever used. Colin is very helpful and answers your questions.


  • usefull
    Hakan Kapä±kä±ran | January 09, 2018

    it must be default in 3ds max


  • Mission Critical Tool
    Daniel Marks | January 05, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I use this tool regularly and it is such a massive time-saver, I freelance in the UK and can tell you this is a fundamental tool in all arch-vis studios.


  • Must have script
    Yasuko Ueda | January 01, 2018

    I use it on almost every job and it saved me probably hours of finding and relinking. It is amazingly fast and easy to use and has the neat feature to delete all missing bitmaps, which is great for cleaning up scenes. A must-have!


  • Invaluable
    Steve Green | December 29, 2017

    Should be part of the base app, so useful to have.


  • The best script ever
    Ismael Langers | December 05, 2017

    This is a daily use script and it's just so simple, with all the necessary tools you could ever need.


  • First script to instal

  • My most recommended tool
    Jake Denham | November 28, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    One of the best tools, huge time saver!


  • Lifesaver
    Stephen Harrison | November 26, 2017

    An incredible timesaver, with a few clicks it finds lost projects files in seconds. It’s definitely one of my top 5 apps and wouldn’t want to live without it.


  • My number 1 script to go to
    Bruno Andrade | November 25, 2017

    I can't stress enough how helpfull this script is, I use it all day merging assets to my scenes. It's always stable, simple and just works.
