We’ve encountered an issue with Max 2017, including the recent update. If we open old scene files, the layers explorer is blank, layer names only - there’s no objects nested under any layers. We cannot add objects to layers, they’re completely invisible. Filters aren’t the issue. Merging scene with a new one doesn’t fix it. This has happened on several old scene files. If we create NEW objects, they appear in layers, but any and all older objects are invisible.
We’ve submitted bug reports but I can’t tolerate this anymore. Does anyone else have this issue? Workarounds? How do we get old scene objects exposed in the layer explorer?
