Material Editor Issue
show user profile  Coxy
Hey guys,

Recently when I have been using 3DS Max I have been having an issue where upon clicking on any button that allows the browsing of materials (I.e clicking on standard to bring up the list of different selections) my Max freezes for a good 2-3 minutes. I thought at first it could just be looking for a plugin of some sort, but it only seems to be happening with one specific file. The material editor itself opens perfectly fine, so it doesn't seem to be anything to do with the actual bitmaps as they only take a few seconds to load into the editor, but the second I try and click on anything to add new maps, be it noise maps, bitmaps, whatever, it just sits hanging for a good 3-4 minutes.

It also still does it when the scene has been merged into a new one.

Must be Max-forums magic.
