  1. Excellent script. Has saved me a lot of time correcting material settings today. Would it be possible to add some sort of feedback after applying changes noting the number of things that have been affected? A message like “Changes applied to 23 VRayMtls.”

    1. Hi Michael,

      The VMC script does actually output that information to the Maxscript listener. Take a look in the bottom left corner at the white box and let me know how you get on.

      Thanks,
      Olly

  2. When I try to install get an error
    — Compile error: Unrecognised macro parameter: autoUndoEnabled
    — In line: autoUndoEnabled:false — required?

    I use max 2009 version!
