Autodesk Material Converter - obsolete

5 votes

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

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.
Plugin works both with Compact and Slate material editor.

Vray Mass Material Editor

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.

Have fun, use at your own risk!

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!

Vray Mat Lister

Hi everyone,

I'd like to share a script I have made.
It's for Vray and it makes a list of all your VrayMtl (and of the main parameters) you have in your scene.

This tool allow you to modify all your vray materials parameters quickly. Globally it works like the Vray Lightlister
