Autodesk Material Converter

The Autodesk Material Converter is a commercial script for all 3ds Max and 3ds Max Design users starting from release 2011 and up who need optimized materials for mental ray, V-Ray or VR applications. With one click all Autodesk Material Library materials are converted into Arch & Design or V-Ray materials. Conversion to Standard materials takes only two clicks

The major adavantage will be an increase in rendering speed (on average 35%) plus it will give you the flexibility you need for your material fine tuning. and of course you don't want to manually convert materials which are coming in from AutoCAD, Revit and Inventor into 3ds Max (Design)

Most VR applications need Standard materials to work with. The conversion to Standard works from Arch & Design or Vray materials

In addition to material conversion the script checks if there are double materials inside the scene. If they are there, they will be changed into instances, keeping the number of materials as low as can be.

New features in v2.5!

  • conversion from Arch&Design to V-Ray and back...it's there!
  • conversion of all Autodesk maps
  • conversion of some V-Ray specific maps or MentalRay specific maps

Turn Viewport Maps On/Off

This is a very simple script for turning Bitmaps on and off in the view port. It has been very popular in the studio that I work at work so I though I would upload it. Its funny how the simple ones are the ones that every one likes. Anyways it will let you turn view port maps on or off, it works with Standard and V-Ray materials. It also handles multi sub materials with no troubles, you can also choose to display Bump or Reflection maps. If you have any troubles or ideas for new features please let me know.

SlateConnector - Makes the everyday task of exposing nodes and adjusting material parameters easier and faster! New version (0.59a) with lots of impromevents!

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.

Having a way to compensate for the (stupid) 24 material limit in 3D Studio is always a big request, so here's a script to do just that.
