      I tried Project Manager 3- demo version and have some question and issues, can you explain?

      1/ Why it’s take much longer time to assign material from PM window to selected object, compare with Max material editor? (with me, it is 3-10 seconds sometime more to finish!)

      2/Can not Undo after assigning material

      3/I can’t see lot of functions listed above. Because of demo version?

        much longer time to assign material from PM

        Maybe these materials contain a lot of missing maps. Check this. You can resolve this using Batch Render&Relink (full version ).

        Can not Undo after assigning material

        Yes – some operations don’t allowed for undo.

        I can’t see lot of functions listed above

        The demo version contains all functions but some from them have limitations. What functions do you mean?

        Thanks for your questions.
