ftrack for 3ds max
Well, guess what? Those days of moaning about Perforce/SVN/Alienbrain (if you’re mad) are over! Enjoy full integration of ftrack with 3ds max RIGHT NOW!
Set your task either from launching the Action from the ftrack web UI or from within 3ds max itself. No more launching multiple instances of 3ds max just to work on the task you want!
Publish files directly from 3ds max and have a preview of the file automatically generated from you. No more manually dragging-and-dropping files to Connect! (Though you still can, of course.)
Review feedback and notes on a task directly from within 3ds max, without having to go to the ftrack web UI and find your task again. (Or, if you prefer, automatically open a web browser to the task through the Set Task UI!)
Manage versions and merge components from other versions as well, all within 3ds max! Say goodbye to XRefs and their lack of actual referencing features!
Instead of dealing with environment variables, artists enjoy the convenience of a standalone application to manage all credentials required. No more hacky batch scripts or headaches with bash!
Additional actions and integrations also exist with this plugin, including support for JIRA through a custom Python publisher!
I want it!
Unfortunately, right now this is only available internally. However, if you are a developer/studio willing to work with me on extending the functionality of this plugin, please contact me directly and we can (probably) work something out.
This entire suite of tools is intended to eventually be made open-source, however. Eventually.
