When Transmuting files into Vray proxies, I was wondering whether it would be possible to incorporate a toggle for binding the materials in Vray to a Texture Helper.
Carrying bitmaps inside of SKP makes the file itself too heavy and using the Texture Helper has become standard practice for us to call up bitmaps (similar to proxies) at the point of render.
Currently after Transmuting, I am manually going through all of the materials and converting them, which is fine (I’m still tickled that Transmutr exists at all). I’m not even sure that a material by material toggle would be the right solution, because it’s generally an all or nothing proposition. A global toggle on the geometry tab (right below Export as Vray Proxy) - ‘Use Texture Helpers for Vray Materials’ would be amazing.
Continuing to appreciate the development on Transmutr and Skatter.
Many thanks -
