V-RayMtl Converter 3 - The useful tool for automating such a time-consuming process as converting different types of materials (currently supported: Standard, Raytrace, Autodesk Material, Architectural, mrArch&Design, Corona Renderer, fr-Advanced, Brazil Advanced) to V-Ray materials, as well as reverse conversion to Standard materials (which is very useful for game developers, modelers etc.)

Updated to version 3.1

Populate:Terrain

34 votes

Populate:Terrain assists in creating and optimizing terrain surfaces from contour lines or from existing meshes. The quad based output allows for easier later remodeling, for example using push/pull painting. The regular face size reduces rendering issues (GI, displacement) and you can use Turbosmooth on it.

Unwrap Pro

Textures2materials is a very handy plugin which can turn multiple textures into materials at once (into multi-material or into multiple material slots). It also checks if your textures have a bump versions and load them as bump. "Must have" plugin for any 3D designer.

Improved Face Weighted Normals

3 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

Rotation Axis Snap

4 votes

MUST HAVE very useful script that switches active viewport to the view closely aligned to the screen axis (camera view). The analog of behavior of constrain angle snap in ZBrush (activated by holding shift key).

Good replacement for internal switching between viewports hot keys (T/L/B/R/V), allowing you to rapidly switch to the top, bottom or side views while modeling. Instead of 5-6 keys, now you will have only one, that is more sense and intuitive.

new in v1.10: press hotkey again to switch back to the previous perspective view

Shows the Local or Average Speed of an animated object in a multitude of formats. FIXED BUG that prevented the script from running. Added Selection Monitoring.
