How to Copy Paste Material and Mapping in 3dsMax
Quick and easy way to copy paste material and mapping from one object to another without opening Material Editor:
Copy: MAT+UVW – copies material and mapping
MAT – applies material ONLY
MAT+UVW – applies material + mapping
MAT-D – applies material duplicate and opens SME with it ready to be adjusted
MAT-D+UVW – applies material duplicate + mapping and opens SME with it ready to be adjusted
Attention: if target objects have UVW modifiers applied to them they will be deleted when using MAT+UVW or MAT-D+UVW scripts.
Tested with 3ds Max 2017.
Run the script. Find installed macroscripts in Customize Users Interface – Toolbars – Category: Kotscript. Create new toolbar and drag selected macroscripts to it.
