3dsmax design 2014 frozen object problem
show user profile  amitgedia
hi guys
i have experienced a new frozen object turning grey in 3dsmax design 2014 after updating it to service pack 1
before freezing the object i uncheck the option in the object property dialogue box that says show frozen object in grey but still i have this issue
also the colour of the object i change to black or dark blue or some other color instead of grey so there should not be a problem
also this issue occurs after i save the file
so i have no idea what to do
if anyone has faced this issue then please help
thanks in advance

Wait for a service pack i guess... currently AD is refusing to acknowledge that anything is wrong with 2014 since they are so proud of not screwing up completely so.. might be a while.

You may have something, from the SP1 readme....

"MAXX-11567 Frozen splines aren't displayed in gray (have original color)."

Not your issue I know, but as you say this happens after saving a file, can state sets override the frozen object in grey setting ?

edit: quick check...yes it can, are you using state sets ?

i am not using state sets, i just imported the cad drawing changed its color to dark blue unchecked show frozen in gray in the object property dialogue box then froze the object in layer and then saved the file and the damn thing turned gray. also i uninstalled the SP and the problem didnt appear but the only problem that appeared was the distorted look in front viewport and this problem is faced by many people (the distortion bug)
