V-RayMtl Converter 3.0

V-RayMtl Converter  - the very useful professional tool for automating such a time-consuming process as converting of materials, maps, lights, cameras, proxy, modifiers etc. from different renderer engines (currently supported: Scanline (Standard), Raytrace, Autodesk Material, Architectural, mrArch&Design, Physical Material, Corona, NVIDIA iray (unofficial), fr-Advanced, Brazil Advanced) to V-Ray, as well as to reverse the conversion of V-Ray materials to Standard materials (which is very useful for game developers, 3d modelers, etc).

******************************************************

About conversion:

None of the existing converters can provide 100% accuracy of the conversion due to the fact that the principle of the different renderer engines differs, and sometimes differs significantly. In this regard, the physical parameters of materials are also significantly different. But despite these differences, we tried to achieve the maximum possible accuracy of the conversion, which the our plugin provides an average of 90-98%

V-RayMtl Converter converts the source materials into other specified material with the maximum possible preservation of the basic properties of the material, such as diffuse, specular, opacity (including filter), glossiness, roughness, bump, displacement,  selfillumination (emission), translucency, reflection, refraction. Also, all the textures that are used for the above parameters are saved. As for special procedural maps, they are converted only if there is an analogue. Otherwise, procedural maps are baked into textures or removed if the resulting materials can be used without them.

IMPORTANT: To convert materials between different renderers, it is imperative that you have these renderers on your system.

Great Plugin, great price

Just purchased your "little" tool in the hope it would convert a Revit model to VRay while keeping all the used textures. The standard VRay convertor didn't work, at least not in Max2018. Purchase, download, installation and conversion didn't take more than 2 minutes. Now I have a perfect model I can work on. This is how all purchases should be. THANKS:)

Yes, the script really converts V-Ray materials to standard

V-RayMtl Converter 3 converts the source materials into other specified material with the maximum possible preservation of the basic properties of the material, such as diffuse, specular, opacity (including filters), glossiness, specular, bump, displacement, selfillumination (emission), translucency, reflection, refraction. Also, all the textures that are used for the above parameters are saved. As for special procedural maps, they are converted only if there is an analogue. Otherwise, the procedural maps remain as they are or are deleted if the target materials do not support them. A full list of supported maps and materials for conversion can be seen here: http://maxtools.3dzver.ru/sc/vmc3_supportlist.txt
