Sometimes in my work I need find some material. When I shade scene to Vray, I need delete or change standard materials or mental materials. But it very difficult to find it. Especially if some materials in sub-materials.
For this situation I wrote this script
- find base materials or sub-material
- view list of objects by selected class of material, select objects in list
- sort objects by geometry, shapes and all in scene (include lights, cameras, etc)
