Reference boxes visible in viewport
show user profile  herfst1
Not thinking, I loaded up my file in 3ds Max 64 bit rather than the 32 bit version and came up with this error:

...And rather than exiting the program I tried organising my layers as the point helpers were the main offenders, and damn well saved! (before punching myself in the head).

Is there any way of getting the reference boxes (if that's what you call them) to disappear, or do I have to recreate everything again?

NOTE: when I create any new shapes, geometry, point helpers etc. the error doesn't occur.

are the bits with the boxes around them animated?
- if so, scroll on the timeline to after the animations take place (hopefully they'll be in the initial start pose) and the boxes will disapear
or just delete the animations

Thank you so, so much K-tonne. I had given up and was re-recreating my rig when I saw your response. You've saved me at least a couple of hours work.

These look like the bounding boxes. You can hit the 'J' key to toggle their visibility on or off.

J only toggles bounding boxes on selected objects me thinks...

Can't help with the problem, but may I suggest you switch save iteration on for the future?

J toggles bounding boxes for both selected objects and objects with a keyframe on the current frame.

Thanks for your advise. I will try hitting the "J" key in the future but K-tonne's worked perfectly for me this time round.

Oh, and yes, horizon, I've learned my lesson only having one measly save file.
