I would like to present my new AddOn which I’ve started for personal use and extended over the last two years. Adding Nodes using Shift-A, select from the hierarchy and probably selecting an operation (Math, Vector-Math and MixRGB) is a very time consuming part. So with SNW you can just drop the correct node with D-Key + mouse click. But this is just a small part of the AddOn.
Have a look at the main interface:
You can drop complete PBR Sets into a single node, Grunge maps, Materials, UV-Maps, new Images, Vertex Colors, Tool Nodes and ready made Effects.
Many nodes (PBR Sets, Grunge maps, Materials and Effects) allow a comfortable modification by pressing the E-Key while the node is select. So for instance PBR-Sets can quickly switched with just a view clicks.
The PBR-Map Extractor is another highlight. It extracts, quantizes and orders Diffuse, Metallic, Specular and Roughness/Glossiness information from PBR-Sets and allows to use them with different Grunge maps. You can create different variations of your Materials with ease.
Many of the ready to use, but configurable Materials are built using this Feature:
SNW ships with 40 4K sized Grunge maps:
