Octopus for 3ds Max
Octopus gives you a lot of features! Since it is not only a circular menu but also a scriptable framework, you have a lot of possibilities to create your own menus and distribute them easily. The whole OCTOPUS system can be customized using maxscript and you can set the behavior according to your needs.
Bạn có thể liên kết 4 hành động khác nhau với mỗi nút Octopus của mình. Mỗi NHẤP CHUỘT NGẮN sẽ kích hoạt Nhấp chuột trái / Nhấp chuột phải. Giữ nút chuột sẽ biến thành Spinner. Tại đây, bạn có thể đặt 3 thuộc tính khác nhau, chỉ bằng cách di chuyển chuột theo chiều ngang, chiều dọc và xoay con lăn chuột.
Also using the settings panel you can set the global behavior of Octopus. Here you can define the delay between Single Action and Rotary action modes. You can set the Octopus Flash delay time, which determines the threshold for repeating an action you have previously performed.
Customization not only means the operation of the buttons but also the look and feel. Here you can decide if you want to use Octopus by holding and releasing or you just want to press the hotkey and start Octopus.
If that’s not enough, you can enable or disable animation, you can set background and border color, shadow/lighting and text color. Also, the length of the animation and you can also define the entire mouse effect highlighted on your buttons.

In most cases, just a few words are enough… To understand a little more, check out all the menus available, for reference!
- There are a few things that you can define, such as Auto Scene Redraw, mouse movement sensitivity, default value, rotation range and
Preview/Hover mode simplifies single actions even more, as you don’t even need to click your buttons, just move the pointer over your buttons.
- The action browser is the home of all the single actions available that Octopus understands. All of these actions can be found inside 3dsmax’s Hotkey Editor. Almost all the actions that you can find here, can also be used by Octopus. Simply drag and drop the action onto the Command Editor or on the Button itself.
