    MCX with P3D v4.3, P3D v4.4 & P3D v4.5

    You can have both PBR and non- PBR materials in the same model, not a problem.

    P3D v4 MCX to Max

    Yes. All 3d objects are made from triangles, it's just that some lines are usually hidden.

    3dsMax 'Selection Lock Toggle'

    I don't know what version of Max you have, but on mine there is an isolate button at the bottom of the screen, looks like a light bulb.

    3dsMax 'Selection Lock Toggle'

    Additional: if you want to lock other objects to prevent selection or editing, you can "freeze" them instead.

    3dsMax 'Selection Lock Toggle'

    No, it works the other way around. You select the object you're working on and then lock to prevent you selecting anything else. It locks you to that object.

    My comment was mainly meant as tongue-in-cheek, sorry if it wasn't seen that way.

    MCX check for updates not working?

    Don't you just love Windows 10! I'll check the notification settings when I'm next in the pc.

    MCX check for updates not working?

    Hi Arno, is the "check for updates" function working? I know there have been several updates to MCX recently, but I've not had the "update available" prompt when starting MCX recently. Both "CheckForUpdateAtStartUp" and "CheckForUpdateUnstable" are set to "true" in options.

    P3D v4 3ds Max PBR Materials Opacity Map?

    That's strange, mines the other way around! Lol.

    P3D v4 3ds Max PBR Materials Opacity Map?

    I think your viewport settings need to be set to the highest quality, "realistic" I think it's called. (not at the pc to check)

    Reflections on everything!

    You're right, there is a "DXT5_NM XY 8bpp - using DXT5". Just experimented a bit more, & seems the original "DXT5 ARGB 8bbp" can be opened in imagetool if it's saved with mipmaps.

    I'm pretty sure that's the only option for dxt5 in the list, but I'll double-check when I'm back on the pc. I did also try dxt3 with the same error in imagetool.

    Here's a link to one of my dds files. http://daveg.cbfsim.org/files/fus.dds Saved in Photoshop CC 2019 as 2048x2048 DXT5 DDS with the nVidia texture tools exporter. Imagetool throws an error trying to open it.

    That's nothing new I've found before that imagetool can't open DDS files created by the Nvidia exporter in Photoshop, even if the compression format is one imagetool should be able to open.

    Prepar3D v4.4 PBR materials

    Here's the .x file from a slightly simplified version as the original was around 22mb. Hope that helps.
