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.

 

Updates:

29/07/2010  I have updated the version for download. Changes include:

  • I have fixed the problem that lead to bump maps not being turned off and on.
  • I have Added support for MR Arch Design material s.

 

Cheers,

Dave

Not working for me with Corona Material

Should it work with a Corona material

I have a load of Muti/Sub Materials. They are all Corona Materials but your script doesn't seen to have any effect. Would be fantastic if it did ! :)

BEWARE -

This srews up any Arch & Design (MI) Materials/Multi-Sub Object Materials. Although the "show map in viewport toggle" is on, the material does not show in the VP. To make it work again it must be toggled on/off. I have just spent 3hrs repairing my scene! Nice idea if only it would work properly...
