    Plugins / Max Scripts & Max Systems (UPDATES 08-17-09)

    Welcome to the world of new and improved stickies. I'm hoping if they're more organized more people will actually use them.

    I have obviously not included every plugin, or max system in this post.. as there are too many plugs etc. to list... (I will be adding more shortly) but I have included some useful free plugs and ones that I feel are the cream of the crop so to speak.

    If you have a plugin, script or link you think should be added... PM me with the thread title in your subject line.

    Or post a question comment etc. in the RESPONSE THREAD here:

    RANDOM PLUGS (submitted by:crazyrumer) NEW
    I believe all the tutorials are linked to the main page.
    Basically it is ultimate unwrapping tool.

    The website structure is same as for Unwrella, though I didn't try it.
    Says it is for scene baking.

    From description on the website looks like stripped down unwrella.
