View Full Version : Char->MS paint->256colors

09 September 2003, 05:39 PM
Ok this is the third time I'm writing this so I will keep it short... (damn ie, damn school computer damn damn.. and so on..)

Was working in 3d max4.2 and was about to save after a long work period, guess what happens,
max crashes when I press the file->save file as button.
(I'm studying 3d modelling and 3d animation)
Out of plain fustration I open up ms pint and began drawing the modell I had started with in max.

After some time, and alot of pixels later, I was about to save, just to find that the 24bits bitmap save option was gone, that ment that the only way I could save the file was using 256 colors bitmap format.

Well long story short heres the end result.. I would realy love some c&c on this one, suggestions on how to make it better and so on.

How ever I will not make it biger, (pixel by pixel takes time...)

I don't know if it's not too late, but there's a folder named "autoback" in the max's folder, always check it before giving up...

Sorry to hear you lost your project... :sad:

1. There's version 4.2.6 upgrage, maybe it'll help your stability

2. If your max is so clamsy, maybe you should do several copies of the same file... I worked such a way once... hate that computer... ;)
