BadShell: Nested Shell and Multimaterial Detection

2 votes
Date Updated: 

Detects and selects objects with nested shell and multi materials so they can be addressed by the artist.

Nested Shell materials occur when attaching objects in baked scenes without first clearing the Shell. At its worst, you can end up with Multi/Sub-Object material within a Shell that itself is within another Multi/Sub-Object, causing Max's material ID system to become confused about which material to use for each face.A Multi/Sub-Object directly within another Multi/Sub-Object causes the same issue to occur. 

Additional Info: 

To use, run the script then add button for BadShell to your interface from the category "# SmallpolyScripts".
