3ds Max Integration
date: March 18th, 2021
- Fixed: An issue with network paths, that prevented the drag & drop of assets into 3ds Max. The issue was introduced by accident with the previous release.
date: March 17th, 2021
- 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.
- Fixed: Paths that contain an escape character (e.g. t , x, ”, n, r, *, ?, %, etc.) after \ (backlash) were recognized as invalid if the character is uppercase (e.g. T, X, N, etc.).
date: March 2nd, 2021
This release fixes various issues reported by users or discovered during the internal testing of the integration.
- Drag and drop of .mat files into the Compact Material Editor is temporarily disabled as it was causing performance-related issues which currently can’t be addressed and resolved.
- After receiving many requests from users, we re-introduced the “3ds Max: Asset Tracking…” option that was removed in a previous release.
date: January 20th, 2021
- Fixed: Drag & drop not working, because the Merge menu can’t be installed
- Related errors: “Error updating Connecter Paths!”, “Error Showing ConnecterRCmenuMaxFiles menu!”
- Fixed: Performance issues when merging assets caused by the new Drag & drop of material libraries feature
date: December 17th, 2020
- Fixed an issue with having external files analyzed even if the “Auto find missing files on asset merge” option is not selected.

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