Pencil+ 4 Bridge can be downloaded from the "Download" section of the PSOFT User Page.

Pencil+ 4 Bridge for 3ds Max / Maya are used to write Pencil+ 4 Material and Pencil+ 4 Line settings to file and read them back. The data is managed as a file separate from the scene file, so it can easily be applied to another scene. Pencil+ 4 settings can also be shared between 3ds Max and Maya for greater convenience.

The following Pencil+ 4 settings are included.

  • Pencil+ 4 Material
  • Pencil+ 4 Line

Importing with Pencil+ 4 Bridge's [Replace] option replaces Pencil+ 4 Materials and Pencil+ 4 Lines in the scene that have the same names as ones being imported. Please use names for Materials, Lines and Line Sets that can be used by both 3ds Max and Maya. You can find more details by looking at the sample files.

*Parameters that are not compatible between 3ds Max and Maya are not included.
