Don't be sorry, thanks for this wonderful script. :)

See attached screenshot of the problem.

Steps to achieve this:
- Open your script
- Go to materials tab
- Click on bitmaptexure
- Error pops ups/

The parameter I'm wanting to change is the filter off on all bitmaps.

Sorry 3dwannab, what is the

Sorry 3dwannab, what is the issue you are having?
I haven't got Corona installed but can get a 45 day trial it seems. Could you post a link to the file and exactly what parameter you are looking for/ are adjusting.

If the error is "--Unable to convert: undefined to type float."
or something similar it means the object you are trying to access has some parameters on it that are duplicated or broken (happens a lot with plugns!!)
Usually I have to sift through the parameters and explicitly ignore the offending ones.

I can confirm the same problem. Using Corona V1.00.02 + Max 2015

If you want a test scene I can upload one. Seems to be scene specific.
