SMES - Super Material Editor Switcher

 

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.

 

matReplace

This script will allow you to replace the materials in your scene with materials from a library or max file in mass. Use the match name button if the names of your materials are similar.

Modifier Modifier Zorb

v2.7.05. Added support for parameters with no entries. Works with Thinkbox Frost again

v2.7.04. Added support for Corona Renderer Materials

v2.7.03. Dosen't save size and position if closed when minimized. v2.7.02. Added Maxwell material support

v2.7.01: A few UI bug fixes so the window will open the correct size and have valid settings on the first open

Edit ALL modifiers, ALL objects, ALL Materials, All Controllers, ALL Shadow types and ALL atmospherics/Render Effects. Work in max from a "Class-centric" way rather than a per object way. Edit thousands of object's perameters, randomize thousands of seeds, enable thousands of modifiers and more with a few clicks!

General Features (applies to all modifiers, controllers, materails, shadows, atmos and render effects):

MASS EDIT: Mass edit one property on all nodes at once, You can specify an absolute value, a relative value or apply an absolute value to modify

MASS RANDOMIZE: Randomize one property on all nodes at once

SELECT/DELETE BY CLASS: Select all objects with a meshsmooth, or all spheres or all objects with a path constraint etc

FULL INSTANCE/REFRENCE TOOLS: Make all objects/modifiers of a class or selection instances. Make Base object refrences. replace base objects with another obj (eg make all selected boxes an instance of a vrax proxie.) Available for Modifiers and Base objects only ATM.

LOAD/SAVE PRESETS: Load and save presets in xml format for modifiers, objects, etc.

Specific Features (Can be done to All or selected):

Modifiers: Enable, Disable, Enable in viewport, Disable in viewport.

PointCache Modifiers: Set ranges, Set path, Flush path, Reload, Record.

FumeFX: Simulate, Load settings

Lights: Turn all, selected, selected classes on or off. Multiply all light vlaues.

Xref Object: Merge object

Materials: Show/Hide In Viewport:  Shows the material in the viewport. Doesnt work with texture maps yet.

Spring Controller: Modifyspring controller settings (Needis its own section as springs are controlled differently with maxscript.

Merge Xref Controller:  Merges All/Selected controllers

id_changer

Selecting or applying material ID's with one click!

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.

Examples:
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.
Want to check if all desired polys have some material ID? One click.

Slate Connector

SlateConnector - Makes the everyday task of exposing nodes and adjusting material parameters easier and faster! Just select a bunch of materials on your Slate Material Editor and run the script.

Version 0.2 Alpha
This version has the following limitations:
- Currently only works on Corona Materials. In the next updates I intend to make it work with Standard material types and VRay Materials. No promises though ;)

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

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!

Arch And Design Manager

This MaxScript is for manipulate arch and design materials in the scene. At the moment it is limited to 90 materials, this you can change at your own risk (maybe on some computers it works with 200 materials).

Materials to Editor

Unwrap UV Editor AutoEnable

Now is no need to take care to disable IgnoreBackFaceCull.
And automatically enters to UV Editor.
It's just a modifier Unwrap UVW with the settings

1) Assigns unwrap UVW
2) Disables IgnoreBackFaceCull
3) Entry in the UV Editor
4) Set subobjectLevel = polygons
5) Enables Freeform Mode transformations.

Теперь не нужно беспокоиться об отключении IgnoreBackFaceCull.
И автоматический вход в UV-редактор.
Это просто модификатор Unwrap UVW с настройками
