VP Material Manager

VP Material Manager

The VP Material Manager is a new, innovative way to manage materials. Save time by finding your materials quickly and ensure bitmaps are located with all of your materials. The VP Material Manager is easy to use and makes creating your projects easy and fluent.



The VP Material Managers is the innovative tools from Vizpark to manage materials, maps and bit maps within 3DS MAX. With new attributes and integrated filter, the VP Material Manager makes it easier to locate your materials even faster. The Material Manager stores the bitmaps in a new way by using a central library database to ensure that they are found when materials are loaded. These are just two of the main features, the Material Manager still has much more to offer to help you create your projects quickly and easily. 

Major Features:

Plugin Integration


MATERIAL MANAGER is integrated directly into the VP Plugins with buttons for loading and saving presets. This way you don´t have to bother creating a new material or re-assigning a material to an object, just load a different preset and watch the result.

Attribute Filtering


If you are looking for a material or map preset, you don´t want to waste time searching through several material libraries. The ATTRIBUTES section of Material Manager makes finding presets a breeze. Just click the attributes that describe the characteristics of your material and you´ll only see the results that fit. Filter by COLOR, TYPE, MAP OR MATERIAL, and even search live by just typing in the search field.


Better Previews

Multiple and enlarged Previews

One preview thumbnail might not be enough and waiting for a preview to be rendered can also be annoying. With Material Manager, you can assign up to 5 preview images per preset, which can be enlarged for better viewing.

Import Exchange

Integrate your 3Ds Max .mat libraries and exchange presets with colleagues

Material Manager offers two methods of importing presets and one option to export presets. You can import 3Ds Max .mat libraries and automatically render thumbnails for each of the presets. You can also export self-contained presets including the bitmaps for better exchange with colleagues or other artists. Just use the proprietary format .mmp to export one or more presets and import in Material Manager.

Online User Library

Share materials and maps online

The online User Library provides a growing repository of shared materials and maps by other users and VIZPARK.
