Materials Manager – the utility for organisation of the materials and work with them in 3ds Max.
The organization system allows the to keep references to same folder in different catalogs.
For more convenient job with libraries all information is presented in thumbnails view.
You can render thumbnails for materials using a custom studio.
Much of the job with the utility is based at the most simple method – drag & drop.
In the same way you can quickly and easily fill catalogs tree – by dragging folders from Windows Explorer to the navigation panel of the Materials Manager.
Main differences from the “Project Manager”:
Support to only materials and maps (the “Project Manager” supports to 3d models, materials, bitmaps and ies-files)
