How to import V-Ray materials to 3Ds Max


Recommended Posts



I learning to work on 3Ds Max, the problem that i stuck is that i can't understand how properly import V-Ray materials and apply it to objects that they would look like in the picture.

For example i found this material on internet:



I download it, and import it to Max trough Material editor.

When i do that, i get all list of materials:




and thats what i dot understand, i though that it would be one material, and and i could apply it instantly, but i get this mess, or just i do something wrong?

Back to business

the issue with that scene of yours is that you are missing assets, i found that material by coincidence on vray-materials.de

so i downloaded it and checked it out

and my first assumption was right you are missing assets.

The steps to properly import a material library from a foreign place is to

1. Locate assets

2. specify new file paths in the material slots

3. Recreate any missing assets or cry


- A video tutorial is being rendered as i type this and will be uploaded soon

it will cover the way to import vray materials and a quick overview of the scatter operation. 8)




Video tutorial is now live at
