New features in the 3DS MAX 2020 plugin?

Post by G@rry » Sat Jan 04, 2020 1:58 am

Hi Guys,
Is there a list of new features in the 3DS MAX 2020 plugin?
I always have problems with getting texture from Max (multiple version) into 3D PDF

The last post (2015) about texture problems in the plugin was from Phillipe - see below

"- For some reason the PDF Exporter Plugin doesn't take into account the textures's image size or tiling ratio in 3DSMax's Material Editor : it looks like it automatically brings back the Tiling ratio to 1/1 during export...
- So in order to get the tiling right : put the texture Tiling back to a ratio of 1/1 in the material editor, then apply a UVW Unwrap modifier to your model
- Rescale the UVs until the texture matches your needs in the viewport

Any info would be appreciated.

I will share with my knowledge here, the plugin supports default 3DS materials, it currently does not support mental ray or vray materials, what kind of materials are you using?

You may want to consider SimLab Composer, it gives you more options when it comes to materials

Details can be found here
