Hello Louis, I followed this tutorial carefully. I see that the "GetObjectLayer" is a recursive function that reads all the objects in "Scene Explorer" and return the name of the layer in which it is located. The script works well. The name "Layer" found that as an option for a column. But when I drag the interface "Scene Explorer" max CRASH. A big red X appears in the interface of "Scene Explorer and I receive the following message (in french)" An error has occurred and the application will close .... ". The uses: Windows 7 ultimate Intel Core i7 - 4.2 GHz 16 GB Ram 2x NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 3ds Max 2013 thank you Ridgi
