Using the RPC Material Modifier Script
The RPC Material Modifier Script is a MAXScript that allows Max and Viz users to easily modify the opacity level, change RPCs into silhouettes and even change the RGB level.
The RPC Material Modifier Script can be downloaded here:
To open the RPC Material Modifier Script, first click on the Utilities Panel, then select Max Script.
Click on Run Script and browse for rpcmatmod.ms. This file can be accessed from any directory, but it is recommended that you place it in the \scripts directory with other script files.
Select RPC Opacity/Silhouette from the list of Utilities. The RPC Material Modifier Script will then load into the Utilities Panel.
To change the opacity, select an RPC and then toggle on opacity and set the percentage. A smaller percentage will generate greater transparency. Select Apply to commit the change.
Creating a Silhouette
To create a silhouette, toggle on Silhouette and then select the color of the silhouette. Choose Apply to commit the change.
