  • What a great script! Been using it for a good amount of time, and it has saved me a lot of tiresome manually falloff work with Soft Select.
    Continue the good work (both with weights and scripts)!

  • Hey, this script looks awesome and I would love to try it. Unfortunately I can not get it to work with 3Ds Max 2019… Is it something I am doing wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

  • This is sooo useful – thank you! It reminds me of how Softimage used to handle soft selection. How Autodesk could throw it all away without adapting or even being aware of some of the workflow gems in XSI is a mystery.
