Render very easy with this script.

Category: Free work
Downloadable: Free

How to install

You can easily run the script by dragging it in 3ds Max. If this doesn’t work, choose MAXScript -> Run Script…

Create button

If you want a button in 3ds max, you need to create one yourself. Here are the steps:

  • Save the script to a location. (Example C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2013\scripts\)
  • Open the MAXScript editor (MAXScript -> MAXScript Editor…) and create a new script (File -> New)
  • Copy paste the following code:
macroScript JosMFRender
tooltip:"MF Render"
buttonText:"MF Render"
    fileIn @"C:\\"
  • Change the path to the location where you saved the file
  • Run the code (Tools -> Evaluate All) .
  • Don’t worry, nothing should’ve happen.
  • Go to Customize -> Customize User Interface
  • go to the ToolBar tab and choose as group “Main UI” and Category “Custom”.
  • Drag MF Render somewhere on the Main Toolbar to create a button

How to use:

– Add files or folder to list.
– Enable global overwrite settings if needed. Settings you don’t overwrite will be taken from each file.
– if you want you can choose to shutdown your computer, logoff or quit max when the render is completed.

If you need more info, just comment. I hope the interface is obvious.

Hi Jos, Hope you are doing grt. this script is not working for 2019 or 2021. is it possible to check it out whenever its possible?

Mohamed · February 23, 2017 at 2:56 pm

Thanks for the wonderful script! Can’t wait to try it.
How does it work with BatchCameraRender? If I have a scene with BCR set up and ready to go do I just add that MAX file to the list of your script? Or there’s something else I should do?

Love this script, thankyou and I’d like to b e able to install this as a permanent button in my max interface, but as it’s a .ms file you can’t do this. Any chance you can update it to a mzp file?

    Jos · December 17, 2016 at 5:13 pm

    Hi Karl, I’ve added instructions above to create a button yourselves (it’s very easy to do)! Let me know if you have any problems

Jose Antonio Fernandez Ruiz · November 8, 2016 at 6:06 pm

Unfortunately it doesn’t work in Max 2017. Correct in 2016

    Jos · November 8, 2016 at 11:32 pm

    Do you get any errors in the script listener? I don’t have Max 2017, so will be hard to fix.. If you script yourself, the feel free to fix the script and share it with me so I can upload it!

      Simon · December 17, 2016 at 4:20 pm

      Please fix it for Max 2017. Please please

        Jos · December 17, 2016 at 5:03 pm

        Unfortunately I don’t have Max 2017. Could you send me the errors/maxscript listener output? Maybe I can see what’s going wrong..

Hi, Great Script! I can do render multiple cameras with differents scenes states with this scirpt?

    Jos · April 9, 2015 at 11:59 am

    Sorry you can’t

      halil · January 17, 2017 at 9:53 pm

      we can render like multi cam;
      i did this way:
      1) create cameras (in my scene i had two) and place them.
      2) copy second camera’s coordinates to notepad (and target also)
      3) activate autokey mode and for first cam set key to frame 0
      4) go frame 1 and paste 2’nd cam’s coordinates over first cam (make same step for target)
      5) in script dialog box, in over tab, click time and set range to 0-1.

      in second or third scene do it again.

      in the end; thank for script.

Hi! The script is really awesome, great job! But, we’ve stumbled upon a problem. Namely, when using Vray distributed rendering for some reason the automatic transfer of assets does not work? Any idea why this is happening?

    Jos · February 17, 2015 at 3:00 pm

    Unfortunately I don’t have a license for Vray and therefore was never be able to test it.. Hope you find a solution to your problem.

      Chopmeister · February 17, 2015 at 3:54 pm

      Ah, too bad. I’ve looked through the script but can’t seem to find any reason for it behaving like that. The setting which enables asset transfer in Vray definitely is saved with the file, that’s why it’s weird. :/

      If I find a solution I’ll let you know.

Hi, great looking script although I can’t seem to be able to download it. The download link points to scriptspot but when I go there only the homepage displays. Any help?

    Marco · December 14, 2012 at 9:08 am

    nevermind. I’m an idiot and should not be allowed on the internet. Found the link. Thanx! Great script!
