Me too. I've only done the 2010 demo though, couldn't find them anywhere. It could be on the installation DVD under extras or maybe one of those things you have to check during installation.

reinstall didn't do the trick either
why do they advert this as a new feature if u have to travel to Balgladesh on foot to get it.. /emo !!

nope Nik, the DVD has the sample scenes, not the presets

should be at the end of this video where he uses a torch and drop a pflow fire preset on it.. bloody powerfull stuff imo and an awesome way to start off fast and tweak your pflow

I was picturing something like maya's visor... which I guess is just a glorified file reference system, but you know what you're getting:

What I hate is that Autodesk rush out new version after new version. They spend more time adding new stuff than working on problems, or making what they do send you work.

There are whole directories of sample files that won't load on the second DVD of max 2010. It's as if they didn't even load each file before sending it out. As a person who develops and releases software, I think the standards of testing at ALL levels are pretty poor.

The need to rush out a new version every year is great, but it's causing problems for people. At work, we currently have to run three versions of max, to use the plugins and maintain projects to completion.

I love max, but holy crap it can seem pretty shoddy from a user's point of view. These sample files /' presets. They should spend MUCH more time making presets for things like this to give people who don't have thousands of hours to dedicate on an effect a chance to complete it.

Having said all this, I love max. I just wish it was developing in a more robust way.
