VMC for 2013

I'm getting a few emails from people having trouble with the VMC script in Max 2013. However everyone's problems are slightly different and I'm unable to reproduce them all.

I'll get it working for the next release, so if you are having any problems at all (or have any feature requests out suggestions) please feel leave a reply.

Thank you!

This script is one of the most useful I ever encountered! Thx in advance for all the hours you spared me! Which reminds me why the hell don't they, at Chaos group, implement this directly in Vray.

Great Tools

Very usefull tool but can we have the possibilitiy to change the gamma of a texmap?
For exemple override the gamma of a diffuse map to 1, 2.2 or 0.45454 if we d like to work in linear workflow like in this case:

Great script. I wonder how

Great script. I wonder how easy it would be to add a function to strip all maps/bitmaps on any given material type? I often find I open a scene from someone with missing maps and want to quickly strip the maps to get an error free render.

Yes,I agree with titane357,

Yes,I agree with titane357, like light lister in max, it have more properties to shown up, your drop down is too confuses to me (to much setting that not show), not efficient for fast move!
