Material
Compiled / Description
08.12.2006

AF Pseudo Reflect gives you an alternative method of reflection mapping which can be useful for metallic objects with flat surfaces. It gives a much better result on flat surfaces than the standard Max Environment mapping, as well as giving full control over the look of the reflection map. It also includes a mental ray shader.

Brendan Duncan MAXShade v0.0.3
403 KB
Material
Compiled / Description
12.04.2004

MAXShade is a scripting language much like MAXScript. But while MAXScript is designed for writing tools, MAXShade is designed for writing shaders.

A shader is an element of a renderer. In Max, materials, textures, video post filters, render effect filters, lights, and atmospherics can all be considered shaders. With MAXShade, you can use a simple scripting language to write new materials, textures, and render effect filters quickly and efficiently.

You won't need to learn C++, Windows API, or the Max SDK to add new materials, textures, or filters to Max. Shaders are much more compact than C++ plugins; a simple shader requiring 30 lines of code in MAXShade, may require 3000 lines of code to produce the same results in C++. This means you can quickly prototype your ideas with MAXShade, and see your results instantly.

The shading language is, for the most part, compatible with the RenderMan Shading Language. This means that not only can you write your own shaders from scratch, you can also make use of the many RenderMan shaders available from its years of use in film production.

Michael Bailey Cook-Torrance Shader v1.0
16.7 KB
Material
Compiled / Description
23.12.2001

This plugin is designed to replace the Max default metal shader plugin. It has more control over the material, at the expense of greater complexity. The settings are: Specular Level, Roughness, Specularity, Index of Refraction. It uses the shading algorithm proposed in 'A Reflectance Model for Computer Graphics' by Robert L. Cook and Kenneth E. Torrance.

Michael Bailey InterBlinn v1.0
17.9 KB
Material
Compiled / Description
23.09.2001

The algorithm for this shader came from the book Graphics Gems II. It has been modified to incorporate the Blinn style of shading rather than Phong. It expands on the normal Blinn shader by providing two new variables, Tension and Bias.

This shader provides a continuous 'bridge' between Flat shading and Blinn shading, allowing you to vary the 'Blinn-ness' and 'Faceted-ness'. With settings of Tension = 0.0 and Bias = 1.0, the shader is equivalent to Blinn shading. With settings of Tension = 1.0 and Bias = 1.0, the shader is equivalent to Flat shading.

In addition to this, by setting Tension < 0.0 each face is rounded more than in Blinn shading resulting in a surface with each face bumping outwards. With Tension > 1.0 each face is rounded more inwards, resulting in a surface with each face bumping inwards.

REYES Infográfica DirtyReyes Material v1.11
284 KB
Material
Compiled / Description
16.02.2001

This is a compound material that works in a very similar way to the Blend material in Max. The DirtyReyes material allows you to blend the 'clean material' of the model with a usually dark material that represents the dirt covering the object (the 'dirty material'). The bitmap calculated by DirtyReyes determines the way the two materials are blended so that a satisfactory, dirty appearance for the objects involved in the DirtyReyes calculation is reached.

You can also download the manual and a demo scene.
