3Ds Max - saving, but not saving the textures for the scene
show user profile  davidfilmdirector
I am at a school that is teaching 3dS max 9 (ed version). When testing it out, I found that using the Tutorials (still life), that when I save the scene, it does not save the textures along with it. Any ideas what I have to do to fix this? I am saving it into a different directory completely, not the tutorial directory. When the kids do this, they will have their own directory as well to save in. When I save the scene and subsequently open it the next day, all of the textures are gone, and there are errors in trying to locate the textures. Any ideas or suggestions?

I'm not sure but that sounds more like a network and max paths issue. Have the school's network admin check it out.

When I look at the folder with the file in it, there are no jpg or textures. How can I make sure they are saved in the right location? In Caligari Truespace, there was a way to archive and save all the material in one location, but I couldn't find that with Max.
