Things I hate about Max 2017
show user profile  herfst1
Only been using 2017 for 2 days (against my will, office updated). So far I hate...

1. Selecting rings.
2. Rotating something which has something linked to it - distorts.
3. Selecting something next to something I've already selected - have to click outside the icon area first.
4. Animation's fucked - rigs look like they're broken unless you either hide geometry and unhide it, or move frame back and forth.
5. Aligning pivot - automatically switches to selection centre.

Hey, Autodesk are aware of these issues, but make sure you keep your subscription active because Max 201(X) is going to be really good!

Where X is next year.

7. New icons and menu layout.
8. Viewport flickering and disappearing geometry.
9. Viewport randomly starts switching to orthographic, have to restart.
10. Object starts disappearing out of view in edit poly isolate, have to restart.
11. Bad multi texture bug. Crash + file unusable after duplicating multi texture shader or linking/unlinking the bitmap nodes. Have to disable plugin, delete material, reenable plugin, create material again.
12. Random crashes during render.
13. Slew of other random bugs, freezes and crashes. eg, merging object somehow caused that little dialog to duplicate itself once per second until I killed the app.

I'm sure I will think of more later. But on the good side, it looks like boolean finally works and layer manager is OK

2x max scenes open, one of them freezes, saves, autosaves, loads, xrefs... both open max scenes freeze :D

Feature of the decade!

Boss: Can u just load up the other file
Me: Nah I cant, this one is frozen
Boss: ???

Spoke too soon about layer manager. Sometimes no layers show and sometimes can't rename layers, have to restart. All on service pack 3.
