    Post Material List ZScript (RevB Jan 13, 2002): Organize your favorite materials?

    Hi
    This <font color=#FFa000>Material</font><font color=#FFFFFF>List</font> ZScript allows you to store your favorite materials in easily accessible lists which may contain up to 100 materials and each added material will have its thumbnail automatically created.
    You may create lists containing variety of materials or create lists that are theme-specific and switch between these lists as needed.


    The ZScript file allows you to name (Title) your lists? Example? You may want to use your name (such as ?By ????? ), or the theme of the list ( such as Wood, Metal?). Naming the list is especially beneficial when you publish your list. To name your list, simply open the ZScript file in any text editor and edit the appropriate lines at the beginning of the ZScript.




    Click here to download the MaterialList ZScript

    Note: This <font color=#FFa000>Material</font><font color=#FFFFFF>List</font> ZScript does not contain the materials that are included with the <font color=#FFa000>Material</font><font color=#FFFFFF>Pack</font> ZScript.
    The <font color=#FFa000>Material</font><font color=#FFFFFF>Pack</font> can be downloaded from this thread


    The zip file contains the <font color=#FFa000>Material</font><font color=#FFFFFF>List</font> folder which is less then 150KB in size.
    The <font color=#FFa000>Material</font><font color=#FFFFFF>List</font> folder should be placed within your ZScript folder for easy access.
    Demo users can use libraries created by others, but will not be able to create personal libraries as this task requires functions (Save/Export) which are disabled in the Demo. Demo users may download the <font color=#FFa000>Material</font><font color=#FFFFFF>Pack</font> ZScript (which works properly in the Demo version) from this thread .
    Publishing your <font color=#FFa000>Material</font><font color=#FFFFFF>List</font> is very easy, all you need to do is to ?zip? the MaterialList folder and it is ready to be published! ( the MaterialList folder contains all the necessary files to run properly on other systems, Demo users included)

    After placing the <font color=#FFa000>Material</font><font color=#FFFFFF>List</font> folder within your ZScript folder, launch ZBrush and load the MaterialList.txt ZScript, then press the ??? button to learn about this ZScript.

    -Pixolator

    Note: In February, A new ZScript will be released that will allow lists to be composed of other ZBrush resources, such as favorite Tools, Alphas, Textures and Materials.

    Getting better and better every day. And I'm sure that all of these new things are just a tease of what's going to be available with the next release.

    This is also going to be invaluable for packaging the Materials section of The Aurickle. Thank you!

    Hi Pixolator,

    I'm not sure how this material list is meant to be used with the material pack.

    Am I supposed to take materials from the material pack and sort them with the material list?

    The material pack is a random collection of Materials with no particular order. Some of the materials however are unique in that they have additonal shader slots (The little `S` in the MATERIAL:MODIFIERS panel)

    The new `MaterialList` enables you to take ANY material (including some from Material Pack if you wish) and save them in `sets` or `collections` of your own making.

    If you are like me you will have thousands of materials in your ZMaterial directory. You can now put all your `SKIN/FLESH` variations into one pack, all your `METALS` into another pack, all your `ORGANICS` into another etc....

    Each set needs its own directory for example `MaterialList 1` or `Fleshpack 1` and if you are a big material fan you may want to alter your DefaultZScript so that you can `call` your packs whenever you like with a handy little button or two.

    Hope this helps until the other side of the Planet wakes up.

    one thing that didnt make sense to me is i was able to create one list and it works fine however now i have a folder that has the same files as in the first materiallist.. i thought that this was bad for you computer. or is there way way to rename the files itself...

    BTW. I have been getting a few errors with my material lists. If you experience any please post here and we can see if it`s my machine or a problem with Matlist.
