    So glad this script exists, the file browser makes maya's native content browser look like a joke in comparison, and this is free! My only issue is docking the file browser somewhere other than its default position doesn't save with the workspace after restarting maya.

    I was looking for a tool which perfectly integrates with and enhances the whole file management system, and this tool is just the perfect winner. If you are someone like me who works alone, handling file can get really a very time consuming, tedious and cumbursome process, . The tool just makes the whole experience much better with its thumbnails and all the other units.
    Thank you very much for this wonderful tool.

    Thanks a lot for this script. I like it simplicity and perfect integration with maya. Tested, and working on Mac Os X Yosemite 10.10.5 and Maya 2016

    Hi Matakezo. It is installed like any other script. Copy the script to one of your script paths (for example run "internalVar -usd" , no quotes, in a MEL tab or MEL command line, to get your user scripts folder) restart or execute "rehash" command and then run the following command to create "Scene Tools" menu: craSceneTools;

    Edit: Scene Tools 2.0.9 - Custom Thumbnails and notes path [Scene Tools > Scene Info > optionbox] Hi Santi, the thumbnails and notes are stored in the current project root folder and inside the data/.craData folder. ex. [PROJECT ROOT]/data/.craData In windows the folder is hidden and I think dot starting folders are not shown by deafult on Unix-based systems. From Documentation: Scene Info Tool: [...] The option box next to the menu item opens the Scene Info Options. Here you can set where you want to store the thumbnails and notes. You can choose to store the scene info relative to the current project root path or relative to the actual scene folder where the scene is located. [...] So, right now you cannot set a custom data folder. Thanks for the feedback.
