      Materials Manager v.2.01.14 - Open the Material Libraries in the Material Browser. Smarter Search for Preview Thumbnails

      With the new version of Materials Manager, you can now open Material Libraries in the Material Browser.
      The preview search with the Auto-Assign Previews tool has also been upgraded. The fuzzy mode now uses a smarter filename matching algorithm.

      To open a Material Library, select the file in the treeview and choose the “Open in Material/Map Browser” option.
      * This feature is available in 3Ds Max 2021 and above.

      The Auto-Assign Previews tool is designed to search for previews of model and material files.
      The new version has an improved preview search, with the fuzzy mode now using a smarter filename matching algorithm.
      Select the Fuzzy Search mode and choose a matching level from the Difference drop-down menu (we recommend using Similar or Very Similar). When required, add the words and symbols to be ignored during search (for example, <preview><_>).
      Regular expressions (regexes) are also supported.

      To match the following previews and 3dsMax files

      d2458163_3dh_00005_model01.max -> 00005_model01_02.png
      a2458124_3dh_00007_model02.max -> 00007_model02_01.png
      a2458124_3dh_00007_model02.max -> 00007_model02_02.png

      use these settings:
      Filename match: Fuzzy
      Difference: Very Similar

      Clearly, these image names contain some “junk”, which should be excluded. To do this, we use a regex expression to remove the prefixes “d2458163_3dh_”, “a2458124_3dh_” and the like.

      The full list of changes for this version is given below.
