Simple script, that walks through all Vray Materials (including Sub Materials of Multimaterials, VrayBlendMtl, Vray2Sided, VrayBump etc. including Sub-Sub...and Sub-Sub-Sub Materials) to make mass-changes like adjust Glossy Reflection Samples, Enable/Disable Bump Maps, change Trace Depth etc. ----New---- Added checkbox "Affect selected objects only". Please remember, if selected and not-selected objects share Materials/Material Instances, also the materials of the not selected objects will be affected, of course. Have fun, use at your own risk!

VP Material Manager - Main

The VP MATERIAL MANAGER is the perfect tool to manage materials within 3ds max in ways never possible before. Material presets can now have ATTRIBUTES that can easily be filtered with the integrated attribute filters. The times are over where you needed to dig through folders to find the material you need. Just select the combination of attributes and the preset manager will just show you the materials that fit these attributes. Finding material was really never faster!

A very simple but EXTREMLY USEFUL script you will use all the time!

With just one click it opens the Slate Material Editor and displays all the materials for the selected objects well organized in a clean view.

Forget about the annoying material picker tool. Add this simple button to your toolbar and every time you want to see the material/s for your current selected object/s just click the button and... Voila!

It will save you a lot of time!

Materializer

poster

Materializer (materials equalizer) is the fastest way to create materials mixing different templates. It works like a sound 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.

Plugin works both with Compact and Slate material editor.
