Does it works with 3ds max 2014??

Hi first of all thank you for this script! It helped me when I needed to remove a material interpolation that created additional passes and slows the calculation. That was when I used 3ds max 2010, now I switched to the 2014 version and have the same problem!!! I belive the script does not work with 3ds max 2014, I mean... the script installed correctly, and found the category to creat the shortcut button ... but nothing happens when I press it, the scripts windows should appear...

Big thanks for the update - now that I work in a company and will use your script quite often I guess, I'll make a donation, at the end of the month !

Thanks again,

Regards.

Hello,

I've just noticed that std lights using VRayShadow don't seem to be handled ... I mean, shadows subdivs aren't changed ;) could you please fix that ?
So far, I used my own little script to do that, but since you've greatly enhanced your VMC, why not getting it doing it all :)

Many thanks !

Version 1.12 was working great for me in 2012. Unfortunately I lost my copy, anywhere I can still find it?
