The Tools package includes the CryExporter plugins for 3ds Max as well as CryMaxTools.
The CryExporter enables you directly export engine ready assets from within 3ds Max.


Important Note

CryMaxtools are provided 'as is' - we do not provide documentation on functionality at this point. However, we are reworking the tools and might potentially distribute an updated version together with documentation.

Manual Installation CryMaxTools

The CryMaxTools Maxscripts is a collection of tools coded in MAXScript for helping artists, modeling and animation staff to speed up their workflow.

The tools are separated into Animation, Artist, Morph and Rigging packages with user interface, menu entries and shortcuts.

CryMaxTools MAXScripts are available for the most recent versions of 3dsMax and will automatically choose the right version to load.

The script files can be found in the \Tools\CryMaxTools folder. The tools can be installed by copying the tools loader ( into \Scripts\Startup of the 3dsMax root directory. After restarting 3dsMax the tools should load automatically.

To uninstall the tools, delete the "" file located in the \Scripts\Startup folder of the 3ds Max directory.
