V-RayMtl Converter - the very useful professional tool for automating such a time-consuming process as converting of materials and other scene components (lights, cameras, proxy etc) from different renderer engines to V-Ray (currently supported: Standard, Raytrace, Autodesk Material, Architectural (Revit), mrArch&Design, Corona Renderer, NVIDIA iray (unofficial), fr-Advanced, Brazil Advanced), as well as to reverse the conversion of V-Ray materials into Standard materials (which is very useful for game developers, 3d modelers, etc)

After watch a few rigging reel using xsi or maya,I think that it would be much easier in animating if the rig has realtime delay effect.

The script is compatible with max 2009, max 2010, and max 2011.  I have not tested with 2012, but the 2011 version might work for that as well.  If someone can confirm this for me that would be great!  The files are available for download on my website in the sharing section.

Purge Empty Layers

1 vote

This script deletes all empty layers. In max 2015 (at this time) it can keep ALL nested layers (user prompt) if any one of them has objects on it. In other words, if a user chooses "Yes" at the query, ONLY layers with NO children AND no objects will be deleted. All nested hierarchies are maintained down to the last layer that has objects in it. Choosing "No" at the prompt will unnest all layers and delete all empty layers. When using a version of max prior to 2015, the script will simpy delete any empty layers. There are no nesting options in previous versions of the Layer Manager.
