ScriptSpot is a diverse online community of artists and developers who come together to find and share scripts that empower their creativity with 3ds Max or SketchUp. Our users come from all parts of the world and work in everything from visual effects to gaming, architecture, students or hobbyists.
This free MaxScript instantly displays the material of the selected object (or objects) in a new view in the Slate Material Editor. Currently, Slate does not have a quick and easy way to do this. Slate View Selected allows you to create multiple views as well. You can close the script dialog box and the script will continue to run until you re-run the script where you can stop it. In the dialog box you can also set a "display max" so that if you select a large number of objects, Slate won't waste time collecting and displaying all the materials used by objects in the selection.
r|shaders is a collection of scripted procedural shaders able to simulate natural environment and surfaces as ground, snow, ice, lava, water, sand etc. The collection contains 8 materials for 3ds max. User can controls a lot of parameters in a simple and effective way to simulate a big amount of surfaces, some of it are derived from shaders developed for production environment as Roland Emmerich "2012" movie. The shaders can be mixed with others to create more complex final results.
