- Why do the textures of my model look so blurry in Max?
It's just because you need to configure your GPU driver properly in Max. Go to Customize / Preferences /Viewports / Configure Driver. Then change the texture resolution to the highest and enable the "Match Bitmap" checkbox. Also use linear/linear mipmaps.
-Why can't I move, rotate, resize, etc my model/object anymore? The transform gizmo has been replaced by the three axis.
If you're trying to do such thing but you can't you've probably disabled the transform gizmo. Press "X" key to enable/disable it.
-Why is a box appearing instead of the model/object everytime i try to rotate or transform it?
If that occurs simply press the "O" key. It enable/disables the "adaptive degradation toggle".
-Why doesn't the selection box appear anymore? It's difficult to know which object is selected.
Press the "J" key to show/hide the selection box.
-Why can't i select a different object? Selection seems to be looked in a certain object..
Press "Spacebar". That locks/unlocks the selection.
-How many materials are available?.
You can use as many as you want, but just be sure you don't repeat material names. Otherwise you'll be limited to see 32 in the material editor view.
- Why can't Max load/use .dds textures if I'm running Windows Vista/Windows 7?
