View Full Version : Mental ray shader dynamic number color selector

07-12-2005, 10:11 AM

i want to know if it's possible to dynamic change UI of mental ray's shader in 3dsmax

in fact, 3dsmax load mi file and dll shader on start

in my case, i don't know the number of color selector color the 3dsmax's end-user want, so i can't change on fly mi file

do you have a solution or tips ?

thx for help

Kermit, have you tried just using an array of color selectors?
And I don't think it's possible to dynamically change the UI. It really makes debugging a pain in the ass if you need to switch out mi and dll files regularly, especially since Max usually stays loaded in memory even after you close it...
