Product Information

  • Required Products: None

This product is the necessary tool for any content creator or advanced user, who want some easy and quick ways to change the materials in a hierarchical structure of items in the scene. The package includes 5+1 scripts (5 major scripts and 1 helper script) that overrides the original DAZ’s Hierarchical Material Preset disadvantages, as the fact that the original DAZ’s files apply the materials only to the first item in the scene (with the lower ID) with a specific name and surface, or the fact that you cannot choose the surfaces (material zone) and the material properties you want to include in the Hierarchical Material Preset file. These scripts will produce some new ‘Hierarchical Material Preset’ files, or some ‘New Scripts’, without the need to write a code at all. The suite will offer you alternative workflow paths that will expand your creativity and simultaneously they will reduce the time you have to spend, in order to change the Materials in a Hierarchy of nodes. The product is also a Merchant Resource, as you can use the produced ‘Hierarchical Material Preset’ files or the ‘New Scripts’ that will be saved by this package, for your own products. In the case of the ‘New Scripts’, you have to give attributes to some DAZ sample code and to this product, as they embedded code from these sources, if you use them for commercial products. It is obvious that you cannot distribute the scripts or any other material of this package.

The UI (user interface) of each script is built using a minimalist approach, to allow the easy use of the scripts without unnecessary complexity (as far as it was possible). See the next video for a short demonstration of the usage of each script.
