MultyConvertor - allow to convert any materials, lights (objects) of any renders to any materials, lights (objects) and renders!!! It is all in one.

You can simple create *.mct (edit text file in any text editors and change extension) file for new render and facilities that support this type of rendering. See any *.mct in archive

Now you start the script and setup link properties from one render type to other. You can also use expression for translate value to other value or execute any max script expression.

Render Info Strip

13 votes

This script was created upon request as a vray frame stamp replacement, intended for mental ray and scanline rendrers.

It allows custom information to be displayed in the rendered image, with user defined font size, style, colors and opacity of the strip background. In addition to predefined keywords, there are five custom expressions and one script value. Original render frame buffer can either be closed or kept open. The settings and callbacks are saved in the .max files.
