Hi everyone,
I have a problem with autosave of 3dsMAX. If I work in tree editor mode and autosave does its work the system hangs for some minutes, the screen is flickering. I can´t do anything inside 3dsMAX and the process has no response in the task manager. I can switch to other programs and work there, but every now and then 3dsMAX comes into the foreground, but always with the waiting symbol instead of the cursor. After some minutes I can work again. So I have to reduce the autosave intervall, but this doesn´t work for me. I got this behaviour in 3dsMAX 2016 as well in 2017. Hadn´t enough time to change to 2018. Any suggestions?

Hi,

First of all, please be sure you have Max updated to the latest update.
A similar problem has been reported in several Max versions, and was caused by a bug which is fixed in recent service packs:

MAXX-30316    Slow node creation / modifier application in complex scene

Hopefully that is the problem. If not, please tell us.

Thank you very much. I thought I installed SP3 in spring. But as I controlled it now, no service pack was installed. So I executed the installation file once more and saw, that the installation ended after "Gathering required information" without any error message. Also a new downloaded file didn´t work. This behaviour I didn´t notice in spring. I will wait until my actual project is over and install MAX 2018.
