3DS Max Containers
show user profile  FX
I'm tippy toeing into the realms of containers, got a huge scene to organise, I'm choosing containers over Xref simply for their edit-ability, rendering isn't an issue, instancing isn't an issue, it's all for viewport performance.

I've been reading the usual horror stories about any new feature in Max , and from what I can find out, they haven't changed since inception way back in 2010.

Can anything be done with this huge box that gets plopped in the scene other than resizing it ? I can't seem to move or rotate it without it affecting the content.
I want to align it to the content and/or drag it out of view because it annoyingly looks like wireframe mesh in the viewport, I want to rotate it because for whatever reason it comes in rotated 45 degrees.

....aaaand I'm tippy toeing all the way back to Xref Scene. :)

Unfinished, buggy and over convoluted, a couple of hours research tells me everyone is aware of this...except AD ;)
