Relink Bitmaps is a script to easily relink all missing files (Bitmaps, VRayMeshes, Mental Ray Proxies, VRayHDRI, IES, etc) when they change directories or when you move computers, check out the short video tutorial below for more detailed information.
Unlike some other scripts of its kind, this is free! There is a small donation link within the script if you choose to donate, I will remove the nag. It is a simple licensing system, that does not force you to transfer network cards or be connected to the internet and will work with all versions of Max that are supported by the script. If you choose to donate I’ll be more than happy to license multiple computers as well.

This tool is available to the community for free, but I kindly request if you see the value in time this tool saves you, that you donate whatever you can to help me pay off student loans. Every donation helps immensely. I do however understand that we’re all kind of in tough times and I understand if you aren’t able to donate immediately at this time. To donate simply click the “Donate!” button on the script. I am suggesting $4.99 for an individual, but whatever you can spare will insure the future development of this script and updates.
If you can’t donate now, I hope it saves you time and headaches.
Be well everyone,
(Watch the video for more detailed instructions for usage)
1. Run the .mzp file (Self-installing file)
