Biped Manipulator (maxscript)

Last Updated on 19/06/2023

Biped Manipulator – 3ds Max MAXScript, allows to select fast any objects/bones and also the whole groups of objects as arms, legs and spine. Since manipulator uses objects names to select objects/bones it is possible to use it with any rigs systems like Character Studio, CAT, custom rigs etc. Biped Manipulator doesn’t occupy much screen place. If there are several bipeds on the scene it is possible to use for convenience several Biped Manipulators.
