The Camera Map texture and modifier projected a bitmap behind and in front of the camera, instead of in front of the camera only.
Solution: The problem is now fixed, with the default settings (projecting to the front only). However, if you want to restore the legacy behavior (projecting in two directions), do so with MAXScript as follows:
Exception: For scenes using the Camera Map texture, then saved to an MI file, and rendered in mental ray standalone, there is no solution. The shader for mental ray standalone will continue projecting in two directions as before.
The data is now transmitted for CERs originating from a machine with the Microsoft Windows® 7 operating system.
The DirectX® Shader material now respects the vertex normal.
If DWG Files contain double-byte characters, such as Korean characters, in the file path or name, you will now be able to import the file.
Capabilities such as one-time login, login less, and in product renewal related to the Subscription Center did not work from InfoCenter. These issues have been resolved.
If you had two FX files, both with the same variable names, the parameters were being lost when you switched from one file to another. This has been fixed so that the parameters are retained.
In the Material Editor, when you choose a material map source which contains a double-byte characters, such as Korean, you can now select the associated image file.
When you rendered using mental ray® and certain overlay scripts, the software would stop working. This issue has been resolved.
When you rotated and scaled while using Non-Uniform Scale, unexpected rotation and scaling occurred. These issues are resolved.
You can now save an image to a path that contains double-byte characters, such as Korean.
Vertex colors are no longer being overwritten when switching between Vertex and Polygon sub-object modes.
The issues which were causing dramatic system slowdown with the SpecAPC scene (from Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC) at http://www.spec.org/) have been resolved.
