Vray Material - Metal

1 vote

recently, i am working on some script for vray material and rendering. i would like to share one of them which is for making vray metal material.

#) purpose of making vray material scripts:
-many vray users are architect who use 3dsmax and vray just for presenting their design. they are not 3d developer or software expert. they don't need to know much about logic and Math behind making materials. if they want to create a simple "gold" they look at many tutorials with different settings which make them confuse to choose the good one.

 The Outliner 2.0 is a fast and easy to use scene management tool. It has a wide range of features, including selecting, hiding, freezing, linking and grouping objects in the "Hierarchy Mode".

What's more, the Outliner offers support for nested layers, to manage scenes more efficiently. The interface is nimble enough to keep it open constantly.

Therefore, you should make button or assign shortcut for this script. Free to download and use.

VECmap tools

VECmap tools is a new toolset to paint and use vector maps inside 3dsmax.

These tools allow you to paint vector maps directly on your meshes, and use them to drive particles, UV or mesh deformations, Vray Fur and probably other things.

We've created it for our latest client work. We wanted to share it with you because it's very usefull and opens a whole new world, specially for particles.

Batch Camera Render

269 votes

This script aims to replace standard 3dsmax's Batch Render and imitates Houdini Output Node workflow. Using it you can specify rendering parameters - frame size, frame number, output path - directly to camera object, so every camera in scene 'knows' what it intended to render. Additional functionality is Lighting Assignment - you can specify which light will be turn on or off for selected camera during the rendering.

1.16:

  • CoronaSun supported inside Daylight System

1.15:

  • Don't Save Render Elements Checkbox (Thanks to antomor)
  • Limited support for camera objects in xref scene files (Only root objects in first level xrefs. Cameras in nested xrefs not supported)

1.13 Bugfix:

  • Deadline submission should work now

1.12 New Feature:

  • Deadline support.
    Very basic imlementation, it allows you to submit your jobs on a deadline server. Enter deadline repository address and check "Use Deadline" checkbox. Other checkbox doesn't matter in this case ("Net render", "Show Submit Dialog").
    Probably it requires Deadline 3ds max Submitter installed. I didn't have a chance to check it on a clean machine.

  • State sets support added
