M-Converter UI

I made a Material Convert that converts Arch & Design materials to Vraymtl. I created this in my free time so its a BETA script. For now M-Converter only converts Arch & Design materials to Vraymtl. I hope you guys like this script.

This is the updated version of my First Script which u can use to change Render Engines. Am planning to add more render engines if i get their RenderClass.names. I would like to add other renderers too but i need their rendererclass names. You can see how to get that at the end of the video. Hope you enjoy this simple script.

UPDATE:

Slate - View Selected

21 votes

This free MaxScript instantly displays the material of the selected object (or objects) in a new view in the Slate Material Editor. Currently, Slate does not have a quick and easy way to do this. Slate View Selected allows you to create multiple views as well. You can close the script dialog box and the script will continue to run until you re-run the script where you can stop it. In the dialog box you can also set a "display max" so that if you select a large number of objects, Slate won't waste time collecting and displaying all the materials used by objects in the selection.

Fixes UVW mapping imported in 3ds max from maya

38 votes

hi all

this was done for a very certain task...
i'm working with team mates who work in maya platform while most of the work is done by 3ds max and it plugins..and i work on both but better at 3ds max..

If you ever tried to export an FBX file from maya to max you will suffer from two or three basic things,
1: all materials are phong with high specular
2: some maps were defined in maya in som way that max understands them as maps with map channel != 1,then the need a uvw mapping
3: some faces problems
-----
fixing these in a very big scene could be very painful

Simple XML Library for 3dsMax

27 votes

Hi Everyone,

This is a library that simplifies working with XML files and XML Trees. It wraps the DotNet library's to provide a simpler way to work with XML. It has been kicking around the web on CgTalk and Tech Artists forum for quote a while so I thought I would post here.

It is implemented as to structs XMLDocument for working with XML files and XMLNode which represents a node in XML. It is very easy to use.

In the script at the bottom there is a complete example script documenting how to use it etc.

If you have any feedback or suggestions please let me know.

Cheers,
