Material Manager

Allows you to quickly collect hundreds of materials in several different ways. (ie. scene materials, material editor materials, missing bitmaps in scene, material libraries, materials from selected objects, etc.) These materials get added to a browser area where you can perform various operations on whichever ones you choose.

Some of the features include being able to transfer up to 24 materials at a time to the material editor, a renaming tool for materials, a quick rename option that names all materials the same name as the object they are assigned to, and being able to quickly create materials with multiple maps from a template.

Additional Info: 

Drag the MZP file into Max's viewport and restart Max. Go to "Customize \ Customize User Interface..." and the tool can be found in the category "facerFX Tools".

Version Requirement:

Working link & subdirectories question

I would just like to commend you on a wonderful script. Thanks.

Just wondering if it would be possible to scan the subdirectories when 'loading select libraries to browser'. I have all my .mat files and jpeg associated in separate folders.

Hi !

This is the script I'm looking for !
Anyway, I have problem with :

"Drag the MZP file into Max's viewport and restart Max. Go to "Customize \ Customize User Interface..." and the tool can be found in the category "facerFX Tools"."

After dragging and restart, I can't find "facerFX Tools" :/

Is there a known issue?

thx
