Power Masker

5 votes

The 3dsmax UI only allows you to set material effects ID up to 16 channels. The VRayMtl allows you to go beyond this using the effects ID override but other types of materials don't have any UI to adjust this. This tool using a backdoor into 3dsmax to set the effects ID beyond the 16 limit imposed by the UI.

This means you can create masks for every material in your scene. Using this tool you can either assign effects IDs by hand or just press to automatically create them and their mask render elements.

Delete Render Elements Output Path

0 votes

If you take a file that already had a defined save path, and you want to change the output path, it does not work with the path of the render elements and you have to use Asset Tracking and press the Strip Path option to delete them before putting the new path. .

Now with a simple button click you have it. Click on the button and you will see that the Output Path of your render elements will be deleted and now you can define the new path.

Works with Corona Renderer only.
