How do I disable shadows or have a fully lit Perspective viewport?
show user profile  xbdx
Dumb question but I am very new to 3DS Max and just learning it. So noobie question :) In the perspective window in the bottom right, how would I get it so there is no dynamic lighting and everything is lit up? I'm having a hard time modelling because of the shadow and faces being in darkness because another face is in the way!

I don't want to add lights to the scene, just have it lit up without shadows only for working purposes. I hope this makes sense :) Thanks in advance!

I dont think thats what he means mak.

Press Ctrl-L to switch between the lighting you created in your scene and default light which works a bit like a headlight so you can always see what your doing.

Hi, I tried CTRL-L and it made no difference :( 3DS Max 9 by the way.

Ok I tried Flat and that seemed to work. That's just for viewing purposes right? It won't mess up any lights or anything like that when the scene is saved/exported?
