locate raytrace material
show user profile  zeefusion
I have received a vray file forma client and they have raytrace materials in there.

The scene is huge and has hundreds of materials and sub materials I cannot easily pick out the raytrace material. Is there a script or something to scan to see which object has the material applied?

In the slate material editor the select by material is not greyed out. but if i select it it just brings up the object selector. Then what am i supposed to do? select a random object?

If you don't know the material and you don't know the object, you need a magic script.
