Data Conversion Genome Modifiers

Overview

3ds Max provides very few Data Conversion modifiers, and they are not procedural. In particular, the Channel Info Utility lets you copy and remove mapping channels via the UVW Mapping Add and UVW Mapping Clear modifiers. But most of the data transfer within the same object has to be performed via scripted functions which is, of course, not dynamic.

The Genome modifier was designed to read and write channels and perform operations on the mesh data, so it is perfectly suited for covering most data conversion cases.
