RPC Plugin is a tool that allows you to place, edit, create, and render realistic people, cars, trees, and other objects in your 3ds Max scenes. RPC Plugin works with 3ds Max 2009 64 bit version and supports various renderers such as V-Ray, mental ray, and Scanline. In this article, we will show you how to install and use RPC Plugin for 3ds Max 2009 64 bit.
To install RPC Plugin for 3ds Max 2009 64 bit, you need to download the plugin file from the official website of Archvision, the developer of RPC Plugin.

After downloading the file, you need to extract it using a software like WinRAR or 7-Zip. You will get a folder named RPC-M2009 that contains two files: rpcmax2009.dlr and rpcmax2009.ini.
To install the plugin, you need to copy these two files to the plugins folder of your 3ds Max installation directory. For example, if you installed 3ds Max in C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2009, then you need to copy the files to C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2009\plugins. After copying the files, you need to restart 3ds Max to load the plugin.
To use RPC Plugin for 3ds Max 2009 64 bit, you need to have some RPC content in your library. RPC content are special files that contain information about the geometry, texture, lighting, and animation of an object. You can create your own RPC content using Archvision's software such as RPC Creator or RPC Creator Pro, or you can purchase some ready-made RPC content from Archvision's website or other online sources. You can also find some free RPC content on Archvision's website.
To load an RPC content into your scene, you need to use the RPC Mass Utility, which is a tool that allows you to place multiple instances of an RPC object with different variations. You can access the RPC Mass Utility from the Utilities panel in 3ds Max. To open the Utilities panel, click on the hammer icon on the right side of the main toolbar. Then click on the More... button and select RPC Mass Utility from the list.
The RPC Mass Utility has four tabs: Select Content, Select Placement Method, Select Options, and Select Preview Options. In the Select Content tab, you can browse your library of RPC content and choose the one you want to use. You can also filter the content by category, such as People, Cars, Trees, etc. In the Select Placement Method tab, you can choose how you want to place the RPC objects in your scene. You can either place them manually by clicking on the viewport, or automatically by using a spline or a surface as a guide. In the Select Options tab, you can adjust some parameters of the RPC objects, such as scale, rotation, variation, density, etc. In the Select Preview Options tab, you can choose how you want to preview the RPC objects in your viewport. You can either see them as bounding boxes, silhouettes, or shaded models.
After placing some RPC objects in your scene using the RPC Mass Utility, you can edit them individually using the RPC Edit Utility, which is another tool that allows you to modify some properties of an RPC object. You can access the RPC Edit Utility from the Modify panel in 3ds Max. To open the Modify panel, click on the wrench icon 061ffe29dd
