Universal Material Converter

3 votes

This Universal Material Converter is an enhanced version of the old AMC script. It convert materials between renderengines. It converts from Autodesk Materials and also converts textures as much as possible when needed.
Currently supported renderengines are: MentalRay, V-Ray, iRay, Corona, Scanline.
Coming up: Maxwellrender, Octane

You will need at least have a demo version of the renderengines installed if you want to be able to support conversions.

While for example converting a V-Ray material to Corona, it will also convert bitmaps to Corona-bitmaps and VRayDirtmap to CoronaAO.

Extrude/Inset/Outline Faces Modifiers

13 votes

Set of simple modifiers that use the Edit Poly methods behind the scenes. Since the extrude modifier uses the poly extrude options and capabilities, it doesn't break on simple geometry like the FaceExtrude one does.

Batch Camera Render

265 votes

This script aims to replace standard 3dsmax's Batch Render and imitates Houdini Output Node workflow. Using it you can specify rendering parameters - frame size, frame number, output path - directly to camera object, so every camera in scene 'knows' what it intended to render. Additional functionality is Lighting Assignment - you can specify which light will be turn on or off for selected camera during the rendering.

1.13 Bugfix:

  • Deadline submission should work now

1.12 New Feature:

  • Deadline support.
    Very basic imlementation, it allows you to submit your jobs on a deadline server. Enter deadline repository address and check "Use Deadline" checkbox. Other checkbox doesn't matter in this case ("Net render", "Show Submit Dialog").
    Probably it requires Deadline 3ds max Submitter installed. I didn't have a chance to check it on a clean machine.

1.11 Features and fixes:

  • State sets support added
  • "projectname" keyword added which resolves to project's folder name
  • other fixes and improvements

1.10.3b Fixes:

  • Crash when vray ir/lcache maps are set to auto-save
  • Region render was not set properly during the rendering

This is major update of the script, so it may not be as stable as before. Backup scenes or cameras at least before running this version. More information can be found here - 1.10b Multiple presets for each camera

Previous updates:

Improved Face Weighted Normals

6 votes

IMPROVED FACE WEIGHTED NORMALS

This script is a must have for medium polygon modeling.

Weighted Vertex Normals or Face Weighted Normals use the area of the face to tune the vertexs normals.

This script does this for you with just one click.

Unlike others FWN Scripts, this one considers coplanar faces like they were a unique big face

You can disable this feature to get an standard FWN result, or tune threshold for not completely flat surfaces
