Copy Paste - Objects/Materials/Modifiers

2 votes

Copy Paste is a 3ds Max tool that allows teams or individuals to copy and paste objects, materials, or modifiers across multiple instances of 3ds Max. It supports sharing these copy/paste buffers in shared locations on the network or local on your computer. The tool helps to keep everyone up to date with real time updates anytime a new copy is created or modified.

One Click Albedo for Corona render and V-ray

6 votes

Script Description:

This script is made to automatically adjust the albedo of materials in the scene. Too high albedo may slow rendering process down and make the materials look unrealistic. Especially when an object with a high albedo occupies the most part of frame area. Corona Render developers recommend to keep albedo of your materials under RGB 180 (For diffuse color or texture).

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 editors.

Show Textures in viewport (one click!)

6 votes

A simple check button to place on your toolbar, to show or hide your material textures on viewport.

If there's nothing selected, it works on all materials in scene. Otherwise, on materials from selected objects only.

It supports almost any kind of material or render engine.

The script was written in a way that depends as minimum as possible on render engine, so it should support a wide range of engines and materials. But it's not infallible.

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!

Materials to Scene

3 votes

Straight forward script to load a directory of your choice or by recursively going through a single directory (be careful it doesn't go through too many as this will be slow to load) and loading up .mat files.

From here the script will apply Materials only (no maps) to teapots.

I use this to quickly populate the scene with all materials inside a .mat file to tweak and update it quicker.

See screenshot.

Can be found under the category: 3dwannab

Open script and change:
local intialMLPath = "F:\SS_3diT\Textures & Materials\Corona"

to your own user library of your choice.
