miauu's Materials Reducer allows you to find and replace all identical materials in your scene.

It will compare all accessible parameters and values of the provided materials. What will be ignored are the names of the materials.

You can have a bunch of completely identical materials with different names - miauu's Materials Reducer will find those materials and will allow you to replace the duplicates with only one material.

You can have a bunch of materials with exactly the same name - miauu's Materials Reducer will show you if (and which of) those materials are identical.

Tested materials:

  • all default 3ds max materials.
  • VRay materials
  • Corona materials
  • FStorm materials


To find the identical materials all accessible parameters (and their values) of the materials will be checked.

There is a big chance that the tool will not work properly with scripted materials or any other materials which parameters are not accessible.

This is a commercial script. You can find more information here.
