How to remove any reference to Corona or V-Ray from a MAX file?



This is a pervasive problem whose investigation I have been postponing for a while. I download some model from a website. Many are based on V-Ray with the second most common 3rd. party renderer being Corona. Am interested in evaluating the geometry only.

The latest is a delivery from a Freelancer. I went into the Asset Tracking and Material Editor:

However, I keep on getting this and similar errors:


The author tells me that he inadvertently must have added some kind of Corona asset but he does not know how to clean it up.

Hi Ramon,

If you are using Max 2018 or better you can use the scene converter to remove any missing assets.

If you using an older version you might try a search on Scriptspot - there are a few like this one:

Good luck!


Ah, that is one of the tools that I have never used. Time to learn it.

My versions of 3ds Max are recent: 2019 and 2020, but Freelancers deliver as far back as 2014.
