3dsmax 2013 - Known Issues?

We've just upgraded max from 2011 - 2013, expecting lots of improvements but I'm sure there's lots of quirks and nuances we've got to get used to.

Anyone got tricks and tips?

For example...


Nitrous Texture Tweaker

are required to optimise the viewport performance.

No tricks.. just a tip!
Be sure you have the latest updates installed.
Since the release of 2013 more than 100 issues have been fixed!
Some workarounds have become redundant!

Yep PU06 being install on all machines, and we use Deadline not Backburner so we're not stuck with the persistent problems which plague that.

If you are like me and can't stand the background gradient:
Make all the gradient color values equal to your general viewport background color value using the UI Configuration->Colors dialog. This way even scenes from coworkers/3rd parties who have the gradient enabled (this option is saved in the maxfile) come in without the distracting gradient.

PS: thanks for starting this list with those two scripts
