A simple DAZ Studio script to zero the Minimum and Maximum values for surfaces that have Displacement Strength set to 0, to avoid weird effects when using the SSS Shader for DAZ Studio 4.5 and later.

    Is there a way to script a reset of all non-hidden values in a shader to their defaults in one swell foop-- er, fell swoop?

    Should be possible - using my script above as a starting point, something like

    if ( materialList.length > 0 ) { beginUndo();  var dispControl, maxControl, minControl; // Go through the materials looking for the  // SSS Displacement Strength setting var m , n; for ( n = 0 ; n < materialList.length ; n++ ) {  var nProp = materialList[ n ].getNumProperties();  if ( for m = 0 ; m < nProp ; m++ ) {   // Is the property hidden?   if ( ! materialList[ n ].getProperty[ m ].isHidden() && materialList[ n ].getProperty[ m ].inherits( "DzFloatProperty" ) {    materialList[ n ].getProperty[ m ].setValue( materialList[ n ].getProperty[ m ].getDefaultValue() );   }  } }}[/code[instead of its original zeroing procedure (I haven't checked that for functionality - and you'd need to handle other property types yourself in an analogous manner)

    Thank you very much Richard, this surely come in play when you have many SSS surface and some with displacement some aren't
