Whoa....slow down! Before using any of our plugins, free or paid, you need to open the Desipher license manager in 3ds Max and log in to connect to the license server.
The first time you open 3ds Max, after installing SiNi, the license manager will appear. Sign in using the exact same details you used to log into your SiNi website account. If you enter these correctly, on the list of plugins below you will see green activation ticks. Close Desipher and you're ready to go! (Make sure your firewall and router play nice with Desipher by allowing it access to the internet).

- 02. You can find the utility plugins on the SiNi toolbar as well.

The SiNi MAXScripts can be found on the Downloads/Extra Files page, located on the left side menu in your online User Account. The MAXScripts are bundled into one installer file and installed into the 3ds Max Scripts folder. To run the scripts we recommend adding them to a toolbar or creating a new SiNi Scripts toolbar. Further to this it's good practice to create Hotkeys for your favourite tools and functions. To learn more, please check out MAXScripts
