Qol Tools: Materials Panel Advanced

by QOL Tools in Addons

QOL.. Quality Of Life tools for Blender! 

Materials Panel Advanced

  Materials Panel Advanced is a complete restructure of the original Materials Panel!  now designed for advanced users.

  NOTE: If you've already bought Materials Panel or The QOL Tools Complete Collection, this add-on is FREE (see below) 

   MPA is a panel designed to help your everyday usage of materials in your scenes.
   I've been using it for nearly 8 years now when I first programmed the tool I felt Maya was missing. When I switched over to Blender (hallelujah!) I can honestly say it's one of the only things I missed from Maya. So I remade it for Blender a while back. 

    I use it every single day ... and this is its latest incarnation!

   It basically gives you a quick overview of all the materials in your scenes in a clear and concise manner.  It's designed to be clean and uncluttered, with utilities accessible through modifier keys.

   Materials overview


The deceptively simple UI shows, by default, just the material thumbnail and it's name. 

Clicking on the thumbnail applies the material to the selected objects etc ..

 Well, MPA is clever like that. But it's far more clever behind the scenes:


    Functions and Features:
  •    Apply Materials 
  •    Select objects with material,
  •    Assett Browser Management
  •    Edit otherwise inacessible materials
  •    Data AND Object mode tools
  •    Filters
  •    Rapid Data <-> Object conversion
  •    Favorites Shelf
  •    Duplicate
  •    Rename
  •    Cleanup scene
  •    Cleanup object slots,
  •    Quick edit colours
  •    Flexible UI
  •    Bonus Popup Panel
  •    Visual usage overview
  •    And much much more..

       In fact, much too much to put here (!)..  Check out the video for way more info than you possibly want :)



Owners of the original Materials Panel will (as always) recieve the upgrade for free :)

Note that this addon is also included for free as part of the discounted QOL Tools: Full Collection package!
