Universal Material Converter

3 votes

This Universal Material Converter is an enhanced version of the old AMC script. It convert materials between renderengines. It converts from Autodesk Materials and also converts textures as much as possible when needed.
Currently supported renderengines are: MentalRay, V-Ray, iRay, Corona, Scanline.
Coming up: Maxwellrender, Octane

You will need at least have a demo version of the renderengines installed if you want to be able to support conversions.

While for example converting a V-Ray material to Corona, it will also convert bitmaps to Corona-bitmaps and VRayDirtmap to CoronaAO.

MB Resource Collector

Interface of MB Resource Collector 0.2 This script is something like a replacement for the File > Archive... function found in 3ds Max. It will collect ALL assets currently used in the scene file into one common directory, optionally changing/removing path names. This includes final gather maps, photometric files, environment maps, bitmaps used in a displacement modifier etc., basically everyhting that is listed in the Asset Tracking System will be collected, too.

This is useful if you want to send your entire scene with all required files to someone else in one flat folder.

Optionally, the script can change the asset path names to match the new location, either as absolute or relative path names. It can also include the currently open .max file and create a .zip archive from all collected files in one go.

Photoshop tool. Open image maps in photoshop

29 votes

Hello,

This is an update for an oldie but a goodie,

 

This is an oldie but a goody. Put simply, it is a script that will open 3ds Max material maps in photoshop. I use it in my quad menu. If photoshop isn’t open, then it will open it for you. The previous version used a hard old school search for image maps used
in your materials, before opening them in photoshop. This version uses
the max class dependencies to get all bitmaps used in a material.
