Noors Normal Thief

2 votes

This script will transfer the normals from a source object to a target object, based on distance.

Transfering normals might have several uses : fix shading artefacts, enhance foliage cards look, toon shading...

Pick the source object, select the target object/faces and press steal !

  • Works with any geometry object.
  • Keeps the stack.
  • Adds an Edit Normals modifier.

Script will be found in the customize UI under category "Noors"

V-RayMtl Converter

V-RayMtl Converter 3.0

V-RayMtl Converter - the very useful professional tool for automating such a time-consuming process as converting of materials and other scene components (lights, cameras, proxy etc) from different renderer engines to V-Ray (currently supported: Standard, Raytrace, Autodesk Material, Architectural (Revit), mrArch&Design, Corona Renderer, NVIDIA iray (unofficial), fr-Advanced, Brazil Advanced), as well as to reverse the conversion of V-Ray materials into Standard materials (which is very useful for game developers, 3d modelers, etc)

Average / Copy Border vertex Normals

2 votes

By Marc Robert / Trebor777 ([email protected])

Tool to fix seams between 2 objects by averaging or copying the normals from one another's borders.

The user needs to select the same number of vertices on both mesh with an EditPoly modifier named "VertSelect". It's created automatically when the meshes are picked if they don't already have them.

The tool will compute the closest vertices from each other and uses those normals.

DesignToolBox - tools for architecture & design

4 votes

Design Toolbox is a collection of tools specially designed to accelerate and simplify basic modeling tasks for architectural models, furniture design and other tasks where accurate modeling is needed. Professionals used to CAD or precision software will find it very familiar some of the included transformation tools, like reference rotation, scale and position, measurement tools and reference guides.

Hability to place snapping points at polylines intersections, visual rulers, fast UVW mapping and randomizations, cloning tools, scene management, panel grids, fast pivot placement and workplanes are some of the tools includad, and new ones are added with each update.

Batch Camera Render

263 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.

1.13 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.

1.11 Features and fixes:

  • State sets support added
  • "projectname" keyword added which resolves to project's folder name
  • other fixes and improvements

1.10.3b Fixes:

  • Crash when vray ir/lcache maps are set to auto-save
  • Region render was not set properly during the rendering

This is major update of the script, so it may not be as stable as before. Backup scenes or cameras at least before running this version. More information can be found here - 1.10b Multiple presets for each camera

Previous updates:

1.10.2b Fixes:

  • Problems with render elements paths
  • Copy/paste of render region settings
  • Properly convert render region values when change resolution

New features:

  • Multiple presets for each camera
  • New keyword %presetname% to support multiple presets
  • Distributed rendering checkbox added to vray common settings
  • Bugfix - Net render not starting after cancelling during local rendering.
  • Improved performance with scenes with lots of cameras
  • Added support of Vray RT as a production renderer
  • Added support of using MFRender script to render scenes through BatchCamera script.
  • Bugfix - Error was popping up sometimes during drag-n-drop
  • Bugfix - Render elements didn't render in certain conditions
  • Bugfix - Pre-render/post-render scripts didn't work on network rendering
  • Bugfix - Select All and Toggle All buttons didn't work properly

Vertex Normal Toolkit

1 vote

 

This script can generate, manipulate and align vertex normals.

Everything is based on layer system.
It has 3 different generation algorithms:

  • topology based
  • using projection gizmo
  • projection normals from other mesh ( transfer normals )

Every mesh can be divided into up to 7 layers and each 'normal' layer can be calculated independently.
