Getting an error

This is under W7, 3ds max Design 2014 (latest updates), VRay 2.40.04.
Running the script directly (.ms) or via my menu (.mcr) throws this error:
--Unknown property: "flake_subdivs" in Material #83:VRayFlakesMtl

So obviously the script is not handling the VrayFlakesMtl properly.

Save settings as default option?

Hi, Just what I was looking for, thank you so much. Just wondering if you could incorporate save default settings in the script.

 

EDIT: It's okay, I just modified the line to:

local minSmpl = 8, difference = 64, defVals = clalcVals minSmpl difference


EDIT: Is it possible to affect materials in the slate material editor window or even better yet a .mat file? I'm just going round checking all my material libraries. Thanks.

Tested 1.2

Hello again. It's my report caused 1.2 release :)
Today I tried "crazy multiplying" when counters hits 1000 and beyond. Max hangs for two minutes in good case, but much more often it hangs for forever, leaving me no other choice but to kill the process. CPU load during this is 40-50% on i7 2700k. No other tasks on the machine at this time except browser and skype. I've tested reflection & refraction only and scene materials only.
Yes, there is limit of 1000subdivs in settings, but user can multiply to thousands by mistake. Maybe there should be a limiter of 1000 directly in script...
(All described is about .ms version)
vray 2.4 , max 2012 x64, win 7

Quality of texture and contrast value affect also on quality of glossines.
But this tool can't predict different pixel color value of texture assigned in map slot. I was planned to add feature which will find average pixel color value and based on that define other parameters. But this will be very long ei. slow calculation. Maxscript is not good for that chalange.
