i wish ADESK would publish such detailed fixed-lists for Max too....
Their usual excuse, the competition would use it against them doesn't apply any longer anyway...

11 November 2008, 03:23 PM
did you even bother clicking the links? :)

it's a .01 release and as usual it does not contain any new features, it's simply a release to address a lot of the issues found in 7.00.

what are the updates, a new logo? ;)

11 November 2008, 04:50 PM
thats why i use xsi :)
over the time you log bugs you find... and then you see them fixed in the next update!

thanks softimage!

PS: today i got response from support within 10 minutes after i send repro steps for something i found. simply wow :)

Not wanting to hijack the thread, but I don't even use 3dsMax and it took me about 2minutes to find which lists the problems fixed and known issues with the service pack.

sigh...i knew it was a bad joke ;)
Just mentioned it because xsi is now part of autodesk....

ofcourse i did see the links and no i didnt click on it because im not really interested in xsi, i am more a maya man. I will stay away from this thread now :)

Good things: Bugs fixed.

Bad things: Autodesk user agreement, and 3ds import/export seems to have been removed.

Other things: The list of known issues is pretty large. Hopefully these can be squared away pretty soon.

Hummmmm, Interesting.:curious:

11 November 2008, 04:49 PM
damned! this should've been released one day before... the buggy mia_x implementation and the incredibly slow bump rendering caused me so much pain in my recent project which i just sent to xsibatch on thursday.

i just dont get how this type of things can remain unseen by QA on a major release :(
