Help: Change of Renderer leads to no materials
show user profile  peter_private
Hello,

Im new to Max. When I installed the program, the default renderer was Mental Ray and not Scanline. When I changed the Renderer from Mental Ray to Scanline, strangely my map editor was emptly and did not show any maps or materials (all sample slots were emptly).Can anybody explain why?
Thanks
Peter

your more then likely using things specifically associated with mental ray... if you switch rendering systems they wont work anymore and the plugins required aren't being loaded as they aren't compatible.

same thing if you switch to a 3rd type of rendering system like brazil or vray.

Go to customize > custom UI and defaults switch and select Max... I think.
