joconnell created an interesting script. you can change the subdivs based on the glossy setting. but it only works for vraymtl. it doesnt work with vraycarpaint,fastsss2,vray hair,…

could we add every vray material inside? and could we have settings glossy 0,9-1,0 , 0,8-0,9 , 0,7 - 0,8 , 0,6-0,7 ,…

thanks

i would like to make a second version of the script where i can only change the reflection glossines and not refraction.

i deleted this from the script. :
i: #reflection_subdivs
u: #refraction_subdivs[/u]
(#base_glossiness): #subdivs
(#specular_glossiness): #specular_subdivs
(#flake_glossiness): #flake_subdivs[/i]

setVrayMatSubdivs m prop:#reflection_glossiness glossValsArr:spinVals
setVrayMatSubdivs m prop:#refraction_glossiness glossValsArr:spinVals

i tryed and it only changes the reflection glossines. did i do it correct?

First place where you need to look is :
if you use version 2013+
C:\ProgramFiles\Autodesk\3dsmax20xx\MacroScript
or 2013-
C:\ProgramFiles\Autodesk\3dsmax20xx\UI\MacroScript
Second plase you can see if you run this line in Listener

getdir #usermacros
