This update to SiNi software contains critical fixes, new features including Preflight (beta) and a security update for Forensic (IgNite version).
Have you upgraded to the latest SiNi Software release 1.11.2, available to download now?
This contains critical fixes and new features. If you have not downloaded and installed this already, please do ASAP.
Available for 3ds Max 2019 – 2015
To download, please register and log into your SiNi User Dashboard.
We have finally released the Beta version of our Preflight plugin, designed as a companion tool to Unreal Studio to ease the export of 3D models into Unreal Engine. Preflight is the fastest way to check and fix 3D models, giving users an automated way to execute complex tasks with the ability to run or skip. This allows users to quickly complete the checklist and export with confidence that they have checked the model integrity, thereby removing any model issues once imported into Unreal.
Once complete, either click on the button to send straight to Datasmith or exist and export manually.
Security update to Forensic (FREE and IgNite versions)
We have been aware for some time about the malicious MAXScripts infecting a small percentage of users, mainly after downloading infected models from the internet.
This seemed a very small threat until one of our SiNi members got infected and asked us for help. We acted immediately to add our C++ search and delete feature to our Forensic tool, working closely with the Autodesk 3ds Max team to ensure both our solutions work together to protect all 3ds Max Users.
The difference between Autodesk's MAXScript version and our plugin is we also offer a silent callback feature in our main drop-down menu, meaning if you choose to have this running continually, it will automatically delete any known threat. These include the ASL, CRP and ADSL viruses.
Forensic is FREE to download and available for 3ds Max 2019 – 2015. WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO UPDATE TO THE LATEST VERSION NOW (OR AUTODESK'S MAXSCRIPT).

COMING SOON – AMI (Asset Management Interface)
SiNi Asset Management Interface or AMI (pronounced AMY) is our asset librarian. AMI will assist you in accurately filing all your 3D assets with no missing textures, no broken links and store them in a secure powerful database, with our guarantee that when AMI files an asset, you or your team will never need to search for missing assets ever again.
AMI has been designed to handle versioning of assets, levels of detail, as well as saving in multiple formats for studios working with different 3D and VR software.
AMI is a matter of weeks away from getting its debut Beta release. Available for 3ds Max 2019 – 2015 plus a standalone viewer.
