A simple script that wrote quite some time ago. It seems to have a great deal of staying power as artists continure to use it on a daily basis. It is very simple and only has a few options. At the moment it support standard materials and V-Ray materials including nested Multi Sub-Materials. If there are any other types of materials that you would like me to implement just let me know, even though I may not use them I am more than happy to add them for the sake of completeness.
I hope it helps you out. If you have any ideas for features to add just leave me a comment.
To install just copy "TurnViewPortMapsOn.ms" to your 3dsmaxroot/Scripts directory and then run the included macro ("turnViewPortMapsOn_Macro.ms". Once the macro has been run you can find the script under the category "Daves Tools".
