Can Material Library files (MAT) be saved and opened with a Maxstart.max file?


Can 3ds Max save and open Material Library files (MAT) using a Maxstart.max file?


At this time, saving and opening material Libraries via the maxstart.max file is not a supported workflow. However, 3ds Max can load supplemental Material Libraries after startup and retain them through future sessions.

Note: When reseting the 3ds Max user preferences any user-opened libraries are removed and have to be reloaded in the Material Editor.

If this functionality is desired for future versions of the product, submit a new post or vote for an existing request on the topic on the 3ds Max Ideas forum.
