View Full Version : Missing External Files - 3ds Max

01-20-2011, 12:41 AM
Ok, so I am currently working through Section 1 Part B Lesson 8 and have finished the first part of the lesson where you have to create a camera n their little house, and have been asked to open my house with all my objects in. when I opened the file I got a pop-up saying that I am missing tons of files. I have attached the message I get.

Does anyone have any ideas what's going on?

Cheers ^^

Thanks. In the end I browsed for the files in the T2G Directory and found that Max wasn't looking for the files there... stupid little program.

because you need to press the show material in viewport button. there is 2 one is to assign it and the other is to show it in view port

Thanks for your patience i've managed to sort it now. 3DS was looking to load the files from the disc, rather than the copy of the file i saved to my computer. Woo glad thats sorted :)
