V-RayMtl Converter converts the source materials to other specified material with the maximum possible preservation of the basic properties of the material, such as diffuse, specular, opacity (including filter), glossiness, roughness, bump, displacement, selfillumination (emission), translucency, reflection, refraction. Also, all the textures that are used for the above parameters are saved. As for the special procedural maps, they are converted only if there is an analogue. Otherwise, the procedural maps remain as they are or are deleted if the target materials do not support them.
Software compatibility and requirements
This script was written with support for most currently used Autodesk® 3ds Max® versions and was tested using V-Ray Advanced 3.xx, but probably it will also work in other versions (although this is not guaranteed). Below is the current list of supported versions of 3ds Max and renderer engines:
- Autodesk 3ds Max [required]: 2013-2020
- V-Ray® Advanced [required]: 3.x, 4.x (Next)
- Corona® Renderer: 1.6-5.0
- Cebas® finalRender®: 3.5 SE
- Splatterfish® Brazil r/s®: 1.2
NOTE: I hope you remember that for the conversion of materials between different renderer engines, a prerequisite is in the presence of these renderer engines in your system. It is also necessary that you have an Internet Connection on your PC to activate the license while the script is first running and make sure that your firewall or antivirus does not block your 3ds Max for the Internet connection. After the initial activation of the license, a permanent Internet connection is not required and the script will be able to work in off-line mode.
