Update 3 for 3dsmax 2019 is here! And with it a fancy new viewport mode, that allow us to use Activeshade as a viewport! This means having your render (any render! ) as your viewport, but being able to select, create, manipulate your geometry, overlay wireframes over your render, see your helpers, etc! Is not the only news on this update, there is as well improvements in OSL, OSL viewport display, and revit interconnection .
