Automatic Installation via CryToolsInstaller

We recommend using the CryToolsInstaller to install all DCC tool packages, including 3ds Max. If you need to manually install it, follow the instructions given below in the Manual Install section.

Once you have the Plugins installed, run the Settings Manager from <root>\Tools\SettingsMgr.exe to point the Resource Compiler to the root of your CRYENGINE build.

Manual Installation

Expand

Plugin files can be found in the <root>\Tools\3dsmax\plugins\ folder. Copy the relevant plugin files (see list above) to the ...\plugins directory in the matching 3ds Max install folder (do not put it into the Stdplugs Folder).

CryTools

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

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

CryTools MAXScripts are available the newest versions of Max and will be automatically choosing the right version to load.

Manual Installation

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

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