Max goes back in time!
show user profile  PS3D
Just wondering if anyone has come across this before..
Occasionally, when i'm working in max, it will suddenly jump back by about 5 minutes losing whatever work ive done in that time. So materials etc that ive assigned will suddenly just disappear and go back to whatever it was 5 minutes ago.

very strange..

So you've named a file something like "my_awesome3D_project.max" and while you're working, max will spontaneously and automatically load an older file WHILE you're working??

If so, I'm thinking maybe it's a RAID situation or company backup-on-change problem. If not that, then it could be that you're saving into an autobak file, and when you reload it you're getting the older file (autobak backup defaults to making 3 backups, every 5 to 15 minutes or so) and maybe your file listing is set to 'modified'. One click of 'modified' qualifier tab will make everything newer show from top to bottom, while clicking it again will make older files show from top to bottom.

Thanks for your replies! Hilarious as ever! haha.

HANZZ - no it won't ever revert to a previous project, or rename it. It tends to just be assigning materials. suddenly my materials will just disappear! it doesn't happen very often (thankfully!), but when it does its a bit annoying.

Maybe I'm working too hard.
Or maybe its the vodka!
