The script is made for concrete purpose, so be sure you read the forum thread before run or use that macros.
Also just to note that the snippet code I post into the forum is not safe as the script should process only matte render elements, so it's better to use the macros that I uploaded on my web site.
That's it for now ;)

Kostadin Kotev (the author of RTTassist, Miauu's Work Plane, and many other favourite scripts) recently release a set of scripts that automate many common and tedious tasks in 3ds Max.

SoX is a cross-platform command-line audio utility (more info, docs, downloads), mostly used for audio file format conversion but it also armed with enough effects for quick composing. SoX is a very welcome tool to all batch script lovers, its free, still in development, and can be used with any program that can dump data to text file.
This blog article show nice introduction on how to use SoX in 3ds Max for quick audio sync composition to our animation, also show how to add some additional audio effects.

Why then I post again about this? Looks like the bugs in Max varied between versions and the chance some of the solutions to work for everybody is a bit arbitrary. One more solution is always welcome, right?
For instance, in the case mention at ScriptSpot, the method is based on TrackViewNodes.Max_MotionClip_Manager but it is unstable as Max not always know Max_MotionClip_Manager track, but calling it by index i.e. trackViewNodes solve that. This way it work not just for me.
fn deleteNoteTracks = (If by some reason this method not work for you, there is other 2 methods posted at CGTalk forum. The first of them not work here. Its based on DefNoteTrack, but it is undefined here and the line of code...
mcMan = TrackViewNodes
while (numNoteTRacks mcMan > 0) do
deleteNoteTrack mcMan (getNoteTrack mcMan 1)
(notetrack "").classid -- that should fix it......as I read this work for someone but not for me. The DefNoteTrack still stay undefined after that, so the whole solution do nothing for me.
Well, at the end of this forum thread has another method that I never tested. It's based on re-copy the whole Max_MotionClip_Manager track. Two peoples confirm that it works and that it is really faster, do the job almost instantly. So if it works for you, it looks as the best one, but if not, then you have one more solution to play with.

Recently I help a little bit on almost ready scripted tool (by Danny McAuliffe) that made old fashion smoke chimney (read more here), but Denis Trofimov decide to move this task more forward by writing this as scripted primitive. The author plan to support future development of his plugin with new features, and he's open for questions and suggestions (read more here).
P.S. - I see that Danny McAuliffe add some features to it Chimney Maker and finally upload it to ScriptSpot.

Wikipedia is blacking out for 24 hours to protest proposed US Internet censorship legislation. Join the protest and take action today. Learn more.
Small sites won't have sufficient resources to defend themselves. Big media companies may seek to cut off funding sources for their foreign competitors, even if copyright isn't being infringed. Foreign sites will be blacklisted, which means they won't show up in major search engines.
I confirm that a lot of small sites are blacklisted for years and not show up in the major search engines, and most of them has zero piracy content. And this is not from today or yesterday, nor yet awakening creepy future, unfortunately...
But there is a significant difference, this has happened so far only in the background, informally and illegal (and unlikely this will change), while now it moves to another level.
Everything is about money... The freedom of information is just one of the victims. This global economic crisis will push the world into a much worse reality than we ever imagined.

Just illustration of an example approach which can be done and without writing code but there also a few points where using MAXScript (3ds Max scripting) can save alot of time.
Ok, I don't want to repeat my self by rewriting all description, more details at ScriptSpot. Also just to note that this quick tutorial just illustrate the idea of using "brush" but its prepared just for circular brush printing.
