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

suggestion

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!

Thank you!

An amazing script that should be a standard as part of Max / Vray!

Would be amazing if you could set up an automation version so you check which options you want to apply to a file and you could 'batch' multiple max files and apply the cleaning settings that you had selected to them max files.
