Material Texture Loader

1 vote

The Material Texture Loader is a 3ds Max script designed to quickly load in textures, create a material and apply that to your scene. It works well for a PBR texture workflow, but it can be used for any type of texture that needs to be loaded as part of a material.

Features

matReplace

1 vote

This script will allow you to replace the materials in your scene with materials from a library or max file in mass. Use the match name button if the names of your materials are similar.

MultyConvertor

286 votes

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.

HDRI Material Override Toolbar

5 votes

Simple floating 'toolbar' example where you can quickly toggle reflection override for the current viewport (any custom picked hdri map will work) and set its rotation. Since it's just a viewport override, all the materials applied to the objects will be left untouched. Comes in handy for example when checking for shading errors.

COPY_MAT

Quick copy-paste object material to another object.

Materials to Scene

2 votes

Straight forward script to load a directory of your choice or by recursively going through a single directory (be careful it doesn't go through too many as this will be slow to load) and loading up .mat files.

From here the script will apply Materials only (no maps) to teapots.

I use this to quickly populate the scene with all materials inside a .mat file to tweak and update it quicker.

See screenshot.

Can be found under the category: 3dwannab

Open script and change:
local intialMLPath = "F:\SS_3diT\Textures & Materials\Corona"

to your own user library of your choice.

Select spline segments by matID

0 votes

With this script you can select splines' segments by matID.
There are two methods of selection:
- "Use IDs of selected segments" - select some segments and press the [Select] button. The script will find the matIDs of the selected segments and will select all other segments with the same matIDs.
- "Use IDs typed below" - type as many matIDs as you want in the field(separate matIDs with comma) and press the [Select] button. The script will select all segments with the matIDs entered by you.

Show Materials for selected. Just 1 click!

5 votes

A very simple but EXTREMLY USEFUL script you will use all the time!

With just one click it opens the Slate Material Editor and displays all the materials for the selected objects well organized in a clean view.

Forget about the annoying material picker tool. Add this simple button to your toolbar and every time you want to see the material/s for your current selected object/s just click the button and... Voila!

It will save you a lot of time!
