Fix Orphan Materials for trueSpace7.61

If a mesh has multiple materials applied to it and the Separate Selection tool is used all the materials are copied which can result in orphan material nodes and connections. The orphans could cause a problem with some exporters. Drag this node into the link editor and run it to remove all the orphans in a scene.

Updated version (Oct 2021) included in the Unofficial Updates in the Material Editor "Convert D3D Materials"

Nov 4 2021, just discovered this tool is unreliable when used with scene instanced materials. Only use with instanced materials of "None".

  • fixed failure when first material is the orphan
  • bypass mysterious for in "indexOf" index value in sparse number array

Bitmap Texture Report and Fix for trueSpace7.61

texture report before fix
Report before fixes - "I:\test\" does not exist
texture report after fix
Report after fixes - "C:\temp\" holds the new image files

Gives a list of all textures used in a scene. Red indicates some error with the texture file or that the bitmap file doesn't exist in the file system. Can fix purely embedded bitmaps so they reference image files on the local machine. Drag the node into the link editor and drag out of the Stack View. Useful when exporting to other applications.

Red indicates image files that don't exist on the local machine or the bitmap does no refer to any texture file

Gray indicates good bitmap image state

Create Texture Files will recreate the bitmap texture files localy and assign those files to the material bitmaps. Lines with good state will not be altered or copied.

Controls

  • Selected Only - only report on and fix the single selected item - TODO multi-selections
  • Update List - generate the report
  • folder - choose a folder for the image files
  • Replacement Extension - if None then the files will use the original extensions. If the file is not defined in the bitmap then a random named jpg file will be created.
  • Create Texture Files - create image files from the bitmaps embedded inside the objects and then reload the bitmaps from the new files

Steps

  1. run Update List to see the scope of the problem
  2. choose a folder to save the image files to
  3. choose a replacement extension if desired - use when the destination requires a specific format or destination is incompatible with the current file format
  4. run Create Texture Files
  5. the report will re-run after the fixes are complete

Use with:

fbx export

gltf export - already has some texture reference fixes but not complete

Earth Day/Night Texture for trueSpace7.61

earth

This object's material will respond to the light's position and display either a day or night side texture as you spin it around. It also uses a specular map so the ocean has a highlight and the land masses don't and it has a simulated atmosphere glow using a constant shader. It's a recreation of one of the 3DBuzz Maya Fundamentals video lessons. Use this object with the real time workspace view. It works best with only one light in the scene or all the lights at the same location.

Textures used are from ARC Science and Face of the Earth (www.arcscience.com)
