PLEASE HELP!Detach by material ID without opening window for options


#1

Hi

I am trying to detach materials by id like this script
http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/scripts/detach-by-material-id

but i don’t want a rollout window with options
I just want it to work with just running the script with no open dialogs
because I want to batch multiple files and i can’t do it with detach-by-material-id script because you have to select options in a windows before you can run it

I want these options below as default so there is no need to select options in a window

naming should be
material name

it should
Propagate Materials
delete Original

optional
Random wire colors

id

I hope this makes sense, let me know if i need to explain better

I hope that you have tested the script and with give settings it works for you.
Here is the same script that works with no UI.

/*
Detach by Material ID
Version: 2
by Jefferson Lim
Terabye Inc./ Shirogumi Inc.

[features]
Detach Polygons based on its Material ID
- works on a selection of objects
- Options to name detached objects
- material propagation
  - this will assign a corresponding material by id to the detached object

[usage]
1. select any number of objects
2. set the desired paramteters
3. optional: if you know the maximun number of ids the object has
   set the Max IDs to help speed up detachment.
4. press detach

[Internal Operations]
Procedure:
- object[s] is/are copied
- then collapsed to an editable poly
- faces are finally detached by material ID

Naming:
- "Numbered"
  - will creae numbered names
  - e.g. 0,1,2,3
  - preferable to use with the Prefix option checked
- "Bitmap Name"
  - if not diffuse bitmap found, it will use the material name
  - if no material applied, it will use the object's name
- "Material Name"
  - if no material applied, it will use the object's name
- "Object Name"
  - will create a unique name based on the object's name

[2.0]
2008-12-09
- added material propagation
- faster detachment procedure
  - old script was looping through every face to look for IDs
  - the new procedure will only search thru the <Max IDs> set by the user
- cleaned up code
- reworked UI

[1.0]
2005-05-24
- initial public release

[to do]
- make a more intuitive naming option
- save settings to ini file
- add progress bar

Hello
I am trying to use it in this script so i can batch a whole bunch of files out

thePath = getSavePath()--get a path dialog to specify the path
if thePath != undefined do--if the user did not cancel
(
  theFiles = getFiles (thePath+"\\*.max") --collect all max files in the dir.
  for f in theFiles do-- go through all of them
  (
    loadMaxFile f--load the next file
 
-----------------------------------------------------------
-- MAKE SOME SCRIPTED CHANGES TO THE SCENE HERE...
-----------------------------------------------------------
 
  saveMaxFile f --save the file back to disk
  )--end f loop
  resetMaxFile #noPrompt --at the end, you can reset
)--end if

I try paste your code in the

but i get a

Please help somebody lol

I still get a
– Compile error: No outer local variable references permitted here: maxIds
– In line: for i in 1 to maxIds d


#12

Replace maxIds with 99: for i in 1 to 99 do

working thanks alot agian
