3ds Max viewport switching constantly

Post by azzamunza » Tue Nov 19, 2019 8:48 pm

3ds Max Version: 2020
3DxWare: 10.6.3
3DxWinCore: 17.6.3.16588
Device: SpaceMouse Pro (FW: 4.34)

Issue: Viewport switching between perspective and camera views.

Max User Scheme:
Renderer: Octane
Camera: Octane Camera - target mode off
Connexion Navigation Mode:
+ Pan / Zoom
+ Rotation
+ Camera Mode
+ Rotation Center
+ Auto
+ Use Selected

Replicated in a new scene by adding octane camera, turning target mode off
Adjusting perspective of either camera or perspective viewport so they are not the same.
Have a few random primitives in the scene to use as reference points and to select.
View octane camera in viewport.
select and deselect other objects in the scene. Plus orbit around the scene with Space Mouse, stopping every now and then.

Theory:

The method used to allow the space mouse to navigate the scene appears to transform a virtual perspective view also. This appears to become active during the procedure and sometime stays active after the transform has stopped.

Kind regards

Aaron Munro

Same things happens to me.

3ds max 2020
The viewport when I move the camera switches to Perspective and back to camera.
Its very annoying to work with this issue.

I rolled back to the previous drivers and works perfectly.

So the new drivers have this issue on 3ds Max 2020.

For Maya/3ds MAX users, do not upgrade to v10.6.3, stick to v10.6.0, wait for a new release of the 3DxWare driver.

Does anyone know if 10.6.7 fixed this?

Nope. Wait for possible future release.

I did - no luck. Still switching between perspective and camera view. And I can't find 10.6.0 drivers to downgrade to :(

Thank you!
Also there is another thread about this issue and a temp solution has been found. One of the users wrote this:

I also have had this problem of viewport jumping between camera and perspective and managed to fix it by turning off 'auto' in rotation centre in advanced settings whilst running 3dsmax 2020/2021 (you have to do this per max version). I also set 3dsmax shade level to standard (previously used DX mode) as it reduced the glitchy viewport when moving about.

I tried it and the problem manifests itself much less now.
However it would be nice to have a updated driver where this is fixed.

Probably you have to hope for another new release of the 3DxWare driver before the Christmas Day.
