An updated integration plug-in for 3ds max 7 is now available for Alienbrain Studio 7. It puts the key functionality of Alienbrain, Avids award-winning digital asset management software for entertainment and computer graphics professionals, at the fingertips of 3D content creators using 3ds max and Alienbrain Studio.
The plug-in enables Alienbrain and 3ds max customers to work in the secure, version-controlled environment of Alienbrain Studio 7 without leaving the interface of 3ds max 7. With an integrated Alienbrain menu, 3ds max users can easily navigate projects and files stored on Alienbrain servers, check the workflow status of their assets artwork and drag and drop models and textures into their workspace.
The upgraded Alienbrain Studio 7 Reference Manager provides an instant overview of 3ds max scenes and their related files both directly in 3ds max 7 as well as in the Alienbrain Studio client application, substantially simplifying the tracking and accessing of dependent files, such as models and their related textures.
Version 7 of Alienbrain Studio shortens the learning curve of 3D content creators by enabling them to access all Alienbrain Studio project data through the interface of their standard authoring tool. The plug-in also eliminates the need to switch between 3ds max and Alienbrain, saving time creatives can invest into their project.
The plug-in for 3ds max seamlessly integrates version control into the familiar application to help 3D professionals focus on creating content instead of managing it.
