Whenever you tried to get color variations on objects you were probably encountered with picking different colors from photos and assigning them to materials and objects to get more variation.
COLOR EXTRACT Lite Edition extracts up to 3 colors (100 colors in full version) from any photo and randomly assigns them to objects, object elements or even procedural maps in 3Ds Max. Just load any photo, extract colors and render. It has never been faster before to create or exchange multiple colors at once. And it has never been easier to exchange and use multiple natural colors from photos before. Color Extract is especially useful, but not limited, to natural elements like grass, leaves of a tree, stones, sand, clouds, and many more.
