If a Autodesk® 3ds Max® scene was created on some other machine, it is possible that traces of 3rd party plugins are left in the file that a different installation of 3ds Max cannot resolve. This results in a "missing plugins" error when opening the scene and, more problematic, prevents the scene from rendering, even if the missing parts have no contribution to the rendered image.
This tool scans your current scene for any instances of missing plugins and replaces them with the first possible match supported by your installation. Note that this match might not be what you want (e.g. you might end up with a scene effect, using default values, that could make your whole image blurry, for example), so ALWAYS check the result and save to a new filename!
