version: v.2.80.2
date: March 17th, 2021

Bug fixes

  • Fixed: Network paths that begin with escape characters (e.g. t , x, ”, n, r, *, ?, %, etc.) were recognized as invalid and prevented the merging drag&drop interaction for assets with such paths.

release: v.2.6.22
date: December 16th, 2020

New Features

  • Drag & drop of material libraries (*.mat) from Connecter to 3ds Max: now materials can be dropped directly in Material Editor (compact). 

Modified Features

  • Connecter to 3ds Max *.max and *.mat assets merging workflows: Various changes and improvements on the merge & replace workflows.
  • Context menu when merging assets with drag & drop:
  • Removed commands: Open (max default), Merge, About/Config, Merge UI, Replace UI;
  • Renamed commands: Open > Open File; Merge (max default) > Merge with Max Dialog; all “Merge…” commands are now “Merge and Place...”;
  • Commands are rearranged following a more logical and intuitive structure;
  • Flyout menus with more context options are added to the Replace commands.
  • Align Assets Dialog:
  • The dialog is now positioned down right in the Max interface in order to not interfere with the merging interactions;
  • The dialog now doesn’t block the other interactions in Max so the user can still navigate the viewport while merging assets;
