Is there some workflow/script to transfer values between 3 different types of mia materials?

Thanks

Do you mean "types" as in "mia_material" vs. "mia_material_x"?

Or do you mean transfer values between 3 existing mia_material_x shaders?

Hi,
I mean "types" as in "mia_material" vs. "mia_material_x".
For example you decide to have a bump, or a pass, or back and forth depending on the need, when you need to change the type, but keep the values for material same.

I've been looking for similar scripts/functions myself... Maybe this one will work with mia_materials too? I'm not in front of my computer, but I'll try it when I get home.

string $selects[] = `ls -type "mi_car_paint_phen_x_passes"`;
string $select;
for ($select in $selects)
{
AEdoMiShaderConversion $select mi_car_paint_phen_x _;
}

This code is to convert mi_car_paint_phen_x_passes to mi_car_paint_phen_x.

Just change the code with your material (like mia_material to mia_material_x, or mia_material_x to mia_material, etc etc...all is working).
