Gotta Love Them Crazy MentalRay Connections

So, MastaZap has a great posting about using the new matteShadow production shaders here. Thanks!. This was a good deal to digest for me the other day, and honestly, I'm not especially pleased with the workflow. Remembering those connections can be a drag. Saving them and importing is only so useful in a production, and I'm all about production efficiency...

So I'm thinking I'll script something to automate the process, with the help of our awesome in-house scriptKid Jeffrey Coe. I don't have a lot of time to script myself, but I can hand off little macroScripts to him, and he can clean it up, add a UI and make it all sorts of work.

Hopefully we'll all soon have a streamlined way to use the matteShadow shaders. I'll post it here if we get anything working decently.
