Select Faces By Normal

Select Faces By Normal is is one of my recent personal scripts. Select faces by normal in the given XYZ positive/negative axis. Work with base poly/mesh, edit poly/mesh modifiers, mesh select modifier.

NOTE: The current macros is not a replacement of the Graphite Tools (new in Max 2010) "Select By Normal" utility. This script have more flexible functionality (and fills my needs). Also if relevant, you can use that script in older Max versions.

Autodesk acquires Alice Labs?

Fist photogrammetry technology Autodesk has acquired from Alice Labs was Project Photofly. But now the Alice Labs website is shuttered and there only a brief message:
"Autodesk has acquired technology from Alice Labs.
Customers needing maintenance or support should send an email to"
What exact that means, is Autodesk acquired Studio Clouds (or other technology) form Alice Labs, or the whole lab? As the news at GraphicSpeak said (original news): "stealth acquisition" and "Everyone is being tight-lipped about the deal".

Appending .bip files to biped via mixer

All that Garrick Campsey said is true -
"You cannot combine bip files by loading multiple .bips onto a biped (only one at a time). However, you can combine bip files together using the mixer.
I've found very few resources (help, online, theArea, etc..) discussing this

So his coding snippet is very welcome reference.

Add PRS Keys

AddPRSKeys is a quick script I made to fill this request. It operate on selected objects and add new keys for position, rotation, scale or whole transform tracks by given Nth frame interval.

As the Alessio said, "it would be useful for some game engines that requires a constant key on every frame to import correctly the animation."
