Very useful plugin which can make your materials dirt in one click!
- You can control dirtiness.
- You can make presets more dry or wet.
- Dirtizer supports Multi-material (you can set random dirt to all materials at once)
- You can add your own textures of dirt. (Organize textures in "Dirtizer" folder as you want)

Most renders are supported now! Tested with V-Ray, Mental Ray, Scanline, Corona, Redshift.

Strip Paths from Bitmaps

1 vote

Removes current paths from all bitmaps in the scene. Primarily for getting rid of irrelevant paths on files recieved from users on other systems.

This functions in a similar way to stripping paths manually in asset tracking, but when doing that I've found that it can lag a lot and sometimes fail to strip some of the paths until you do it multiple times.

Bad paths can cause lag when Max tries to search for the missing textures, especially when they're pointing to a nonexistent network location.

HoHa Material ID

Just another small script to add "Material" modifiers on top of the sellections to assign random or in order material ID. Apply multi subobject material to the selection first.

Comment and feedback are welcome.

 

Change Log:

V1: Basic as above.

V1.1: Added a random IDs button for making the IDs Random (duh) :)

Cheers

Hi everyone,

I'd like to share a script I have made.
It's for Vray and it makes a list of all your VrayMtl (and of the main parameters) you have in your scene.

UPDATE Version 0.5 for vray 3.xx

This tool allow you to modify all your vray materials parameters quickly. Globally it works like the Vray Lightlister

Materializer

Materializer (materials equalizer) is the fastest way to create materials mixing different templates. It works like equalizer but for materials!
Example: To make glossy wood press the 'Wood' button and then add a little bit of plastic.

Every time you hit 'Set' selected material will be updated without removing of maps.

Currently only V-RAY supported.
Plugin works both with Compact and Slate material editor.

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.

Outliner

 The Outliner 2.0 is a fast and easy to use scene management tool. It has a wide range of features, including selecting, hiding, freezing, linking and grouping objects in the "Hierarchy Mode". In the "Layer Mode" you can organize your scene by dragging&dropping objects from one layer to the other. What's more, the Outliner offers support for nested layers, to manage scenes more efficiently. The interface is nimble enough to keep it open constantly.

Z Manager

SORRY, BUT THIS SCRIPT IS CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE.

This is a 3dsMax manager tool, preferably for Vray users, very useful for editing architectural models created with other software (eg. ArchiCAD) and fast scene setup. Very useful tools for Selection, Rendering, Incremental Rendering, Copy/Paste objects from other scenes, Material Replacer, Animation with Moving Objects, Exporting/Importing Vray Proxy with material and so on...

- Upon running the script, it will ask for confirmation. (the script overwrites existing materials)
- Reports unconvertible materials in the output window
- Using the log, fix the remaining materials manually

v0.8 - original names should stick around on all materials now.
