Er, so I tried to play around with Beeple's Zero Day project files. They're pretty huge and stuff and don't play, because he's a mad genius who doesn't optimise anything. Anyhoo, I only have a demo of Octane but I do know that Vray and Octane are more or less identical in implementation for c4d - same tags, very similar materials. It's child's play to pull up the call commands for all params as well.
I wanted to write a script that could convert all Beeple's lovely Octane materials automatically into Vray.
But then, it would be easy enough to convert the camera, env, light tags as well.
Anyone got an idea? I suck at python, I'd love to see what Lennart could pull out, and I am disinclined to use this to teach myself python if there is already snippets floating around I can mangle into shape.
I'd like to see a similar material conversion script to see how to put a new vray material into memory and populate its params from (at least) the active Octane material and then replace it.
