MultyConvertor - allow to convert any materials, lights (objects) of any renders to any materials, lights (objects) and renders!!! It is all in one.

You can simple create *.mct (edit text file in any text editors and change extension) file for new render and facilities that support this type of rendering. See any *.mct in archive

Now you start the script and setup link properties from one render type to other. You can also use expression for translate value to other value or execute any max script expression.

For example: we have 100% value for opasity in Standart material and should be write for Vray transparent color:

[x/255.0, x/255.0, x/255.0]

x - value of Standard material opasity and result color for Vray transparent property.

Also convertor allow glboal change any parameters in scene. Simple setup the property from and to. Example:


Database saved in proplink.mcl and matlink.mcl

Be careful! The convertor is very powerful and can do many things. I do not even know all its capabilities.
V2.6 news:
- more then 700 property links
- 2012 max compatible
- add Shift+Reload database button pressed: join selected database to current

if you have new work property links, please send your database (MCLink folder) to me by e-mail (you can find it on my website). I'll update the database for all

Problems with Metals, Lightmaterials and Glass

Converting from Vray to Scanline I have to change metals and lighting materials manualy, because they are all black ... using Max2016 and Vray 3.4

multimaterial problem

when I import sketchup models form google warehouse, 3dsmax converts all materials to MR. I prefer to work with scanline. When converting with the script, single materials are converted well, but multi-sub materials don't convert at all.
A workaround is to activate the 'medit slots' button, but it only converts the submaterial which are active in the editor, so you have to manually click all the submaterials one-by-one, with multisub materials of sometimes 70 submaterials this is not workable.
Please does anyone experience the same problem with multi-sub materials not being converted (to scanline)?

Same vray transparency problem

I wouldn't call this a little's pretty destructive since the script runs scene-wide. I'm still having this issue with all objects becoming transparent when converting to vray. This script has been the most robust converter I've tested except for this issue. I currently use ModifierModifierZorb to change all the converted material transparency from white back to black, but of course if I have some materials that should be transparent I have to change those individually.

It doesn't seem like this script has been updated in a while, so maybe it's dead, but it'd be absolutely wonderful if someone could point out how to fix this problem (in one of the .mcl files perhaps, since we can't edit the mse).

Vray 3.0

Hi i have an Revit 2014 fbx imported file, im currently using Vray 3.0 as renderer, when i click convert to Vray on the script interface the operation goes well until 30% then the PC hangs for a long time at 13% (cpu usage on a CoreI7 2600k) .
Is this a problem with Vray 3.0? Does any one have a link file for vray 3.0?
