    Sadly, the links and videos to this tutorial are lost to the ages. I've searched the web for these, but all other links to these elsewhere lead to spammy adult naughty sites. Kinda sad, because these tutorials would be an excellent jumping off point for new BATters...

    We're looking for the gmax model that was made in this video series. Has anyone downloaded it before and would be willing to share it with us? We would really appreciate it! Thanks! :|

    {Simtropolis Tools V105}

    Later on in that topic, Swat-Medic says that an updated V106 version is in the BAT4MAX as well. I don't know for sure since I don't use 3DSMAX yet.

      This is a method to let you reset cameras in Gmax with a right-click on the viewport as in 3ds Max. This is useful when after previewing different views with BAT scripts you are left with an ortho view locked in where perspective used to be, or you accidentally shift one of the top/left/side views into perspective and want it back.
