Wildcards ?

Hello,

Thanks for the great work you do on VMC - definitely a must-have (that's why I made a donation btw :P).
A question though: would it be tricky to add an option in the "4.Apply Change To:" section, to be able to apply only to material using a defined prefix or suffix ? for example, apply change only to materials starting with Glass* or ending with *Inox ...

Thanks !

NicolasC

3dsMax 2015 Vray 3.10.03

I just tried the latest version of this - when i install it says "-- Unable to convert: ""to type: BooleanClass". After that it says VMC is installed. When i try to run it, it will not open and repeats that first message. How do i uninstall and do a clean reinstall ? thx
ok - i realised you have to delete the old files from your local user folder & then reinstall. problem solved.
