Slate Editor Max 2018.4

i suddenly don´t have no shaded material previews - for example shaded textured spheres - in my material editor but only 2 dimensional flat discs.

when i restart max i get my shaded sphere preview back

may by a keyboard shortcut that i unintentionally use ???

any idea?

Not sure if there is a keyboard shortcut, but if you right click on the thumbnail you can change between sphere, cube, and cylinder in the "Preview Object Type" section.

Sometimes the Ambient Value in "Environment" is set to high, so that there is no shadow in the ME.

thanks guys

the preview object type is not the problem. the objects where shown as flat disc not spheres

ambient light  ... yes may be

finally i reinstalled VRay one more time ... since then it works fine

2018.4 has some strange behavior from time to time ...

If some of the previews are kind of flat and look more like an image that's displayed with the wrong gamma have you tried clearing the thumbnail preview cache? That has been happening in the CME since before they bolted Slate on. If they are all flat maybe the material editor renderer got unlocked from the production renderer?
