Material Layer Interface
Mar 14, 2011 by CGP Staff
MLI is a commercial script by Andreas Stumm for creating material layers and passes in Max. Features include: create and manage individual render passes / render layers easily, add with one click an individual set of objects to your MLI layer, assign different materials, lights, render engines and render settings per layer, etc. Optional functions performed on activating a layer include: ability to see in the viewport only the objects assigned to the active MLI layer, change the camera viewport to the assigned camera, always have the used materials in the Material Editor, etc. MLI aims to make rendering of dozens of MLI layers in one Max file easy and fast. A trial version is available. More at Andreas Stumm’s site.
