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.

Show Textures in viewport (one click!)

A simple check button to place on your toolbar, to show or hide the textures for all materials in scene.

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.

Materializer

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 Materials for selected. Just 1 click!

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!

A simple script that can be used to merge individual .mat files (material libraries) into one big file. Pretty lame interface, but it gets the job done. Feel free to modify as needed.

Rollout with button grid for selecting or setting material ID's of selected polys up to ID 24. Works with editable poly only. Displays selected poly's material ID if they're same.
Ctrl + click add specific IDs. Alt + click deselects specific IDs.

Want to set some specific material ID up to 24 to selected polys? One click.
Want to select polys with same material ID's of selected poly? One click.

Purge Unused Materials

2 votes

A simple macroscript to delete all unused materials from the Compact Editor Material Slots AND the Slate Material Editor Views.
The Compact Editor Code is from the existing Macro found under the Compact Material Editor "Utilities" menu.
I have added the code to also purge the SME at the same time.

You might want to check out the "Purge Empty Layers" macroscript as well. There are some awesome scene management tools out there but these are both small, simple tools without a lot of overhead for doing a little housekeeping before saving your file.
