- Upon running the script, it will ask for confirmation. (the script overwrites existing materials)
- Reports unconvertible materials in the output window
- Using the log, fix the remaining materials manually

v0.8 - original names should stick around on all materials now.

Thank you for sharing! It's

Thank you for sharing! It's almost perfect, but there's one minor issue: it doesn't convert Autodesk bitmap to vanilla bitmap. Could it be fixed?
I found there is your additional script to cure this issue but it does nothing.

Thank you very much!!!

This script is the best! I searched for hours looking for a way to convert Autodesk Materials to V-ray materials. It looked like the only way was spending €99 on Universal Material Converter, but instead I used your script and then v-ray scene converter!
Thanks again!

Looking into it

Thanks for letting me know about this issue!

If you know which material is causing the script to get stuck, do you think you could you assign it to a box, save that to a new Max file and upload it here as an attachment? If you're up for it, this would help me verify that any changes I make will fix the issue.
