3dsMax 2023.1 – Performance
Improving/optimizing performance #3dsMax has been one of the big focus for a while. #3dsMax 2023.1 has another round of big performance boost. Especially these updates are for animators.
3dsMax 2023.1 – Spline Extrude
3dsMax is known for the best spline tool on the market. Yet it has gotten even better!
3dsMax 2023.1 – Progress bar update
File IO operations will show progress and progress will displayed in task bar icon.
#3dsMax 2023.1 – Isolate selection updates
Zoom Extents On Isolate (ZEOI) is now persistent from session to session (in 3ds Max.ini). Default value of ZEOI is set to off, means do not zoom extents on isolation.
#3dsMax 2023.1 – New Triangulation algorithm
New Triangulation algorithm prevents inverted or collapsed triangles, generates more regular fewer long, thin triangles and handles non-planar faces better. Chamfer and SmartExtrude utilize this new algorithm. It will eventually be deployed more broadly.
#3dsMax 2023 1 – Vertex Paint modifier Capture
A new button is available called “Capture” which copies all of the existing vertex colors that exist under the current Vertex Paint modifier into this level. This will allow you to blur and work with the existing data easier.
#3dsMax 2023 1 – Background Playback & Merge Performance
Improved playback speed with animated background if the source image is in sRGB or gamma 2.2. It is 2x-3x faster.
Improved performance of Merge dialog when dealing with large number of nodes.
