Materials to Scene

Straight forward script to load a directory of your choice or by recursively going through a single directory (be careful it doesn't go through too many as this will be slow to load) and loading up .mat files.

From here the script will apply Materials only (no maps) to teapots.

I use this to quickly populate the scene with all materials inside a .mat file to tweak and update it quicker.

See screenshot.

Can be found under the category: 3dwannab

Open script and change:
local intialMLPath = "F:\SS_3diT\Textures & Materials\Corona"

to your own user library of your choice.

CHG LOG:
v1.0 - 2016.01.25 - Initial Release
v1.1 - 2016.03.17 - Fix bug if intial path not found

to

local intialMLPath = "F:\\SS_3diT\\Textures & Materials\\Corona"

!! Make sure you place two \\ at each directory change.
