+ Just stumbled upon it and its seems to be a highly useful tool because it makes connection between two most famous software packages in CG; Adobe PhotoShop and Autodesk 3DS MAX. RDG PSD2Mat is a production proven connection between Adobe PhotoShop® and Autodesk 3D Studio MAX®. This maxScript converts layered PSD Files into a Scanline or VRay-Material. Named layers are converted to bitmap files and assigned to their respective material slots. RDG PSD2Mat allows you to use the sophisticated layer management of Adobe Photoshop to layout your materials in 3ds max and fine-tune the details. Currently Standard Scanline and VRay-Advanced Materials are supported and as MentalRay on-the-fly converts Standard Materials it is possible to use RDG PSD2Mat in a MR pipeline. PSD2Mat maxScript is developed by Georg Dümlein and based on PSD2Material by Keith Boshoff. For Download and more info - Click here
