New category started on LOAD — Little tips. Here i make some short advices that can helps you in your everyday work.
The first one dedicated to one 3ds Max problem — increasing file size and saving time on some scenes, even in a very small ones.
Some time ago i find that some of my scene create big .max files. Working in this scenes becomes very slow, saving took sometimes more than 5 minutes. So i decide to fix it. First i merge geometry from bad files to clear scene, but it do not help. More than that, absolutely clear scenes becomes slow and big like the bad ones. Even if i delete all geometry, .max file stay almost the same size. After some searching i find this article on Autodesk site. Download script, run it and realize that this method do not work for me.
After many attempts i finaly find the solution. For some reasons 3ds Max save information about some kind of collision in Reactor utility, even if you do not use it. So if you see numbers like on a picture bellow, click "Clear" button and be happy.
Hope it helps. More tips coming soon.
