Just Installed 3DS Max 2013
show user profile  ccampbell
Still on 2011 because of all the issues I heard about in 2012. So i just got a copy of 2013 and am going to spend some time playing with it before I make the switch. Wondering if those of you using it already have any tips or issues that would be good to share in general about this version.

My main and only tip would be to install the Product Updates as soon as possible!

Enjoy it, it is a great release, even though it has issues.

Thats a win7 aero thing, if you switch your windows to basic view it will display correctly. The joys of choices.

I have the translucent window drag turned off in windows preferences which is on by default. Max 2013 is the only thing on my comp that does this. :/ it's not even the whole app if I unmaximize and drag the app it's fine. It's only windows launched within Max like materials, render window, render settings etc...
