This tool can help you to clean and speed up your scene. Hover with your cursor over the clean-buttons to see tooltips for further information.

 

Additional Info: 

Installation:

  • Drag and drop the file "install macro.ms" into your scene
  • You can create a toolbar button by using the macro under: Customize > Category: "# Scripts" > Cleaner

Tips:

  • If you look inside the folder .../Cleaner/clean/deactivated/... you can find further functions. To use them you need to move them into the folder  .../Cleaner/clean/...
  • Before cleaning dublicate objects, you should select and isolate these objects to check if they are really dublicates!
  • The "Texture Filtering" will speed up your rendering cause textures like leafes, flowers and ivys will be set to filtering:none, but this will change the look of your rendering, use with care!

 WARNING: I DONT GIVE ANY WARRANTY, USE AT OWN RISK, BETTER SAVE SCENE BEFORE USE

Version Requirement: 
tested in 2009, 2012 with Vray, 2015 with Vray

In Customise user interface

In Customise user interface go to toolbars, select #Scripts Category and drag the Cleaner action to a toolbar on your interface. The icon will change in areas you can drop it.

Cleaner button

I just cant figure out how to make a button for cleaner script. I know how to make a button under 'Customize User Interface' but have no idea how to ''connect'' it to the Cleaner script. Is anybody so kind to explain it..? :(

Automation

Hi, What a great script, Thanks so much for this.

Is there any way to activate the individual scripts in the zip file without using the interface? We are plagued with animation layers and would love to automatically run most of the scene cleaner scripts on every file we open. Thanks.:)

Hi, can i make a suggestion? create a button to clean only empty selection sets. I think that would be a useful option.
Thanks!

Hi Andreas, Thank you very

Hi Andreas,

Thank you very much for your script, it helps me pretty much daily.

Is it an idea to include an option for VrayFastSSS materials to be set to raytraced instead of prepass based illumination map?

Thanks again!
