XMesh Loader MX Loading Rollout

 

Viewport
Sequence drop-down list
Choose which sequence to display in the viewport. The sequences are specified using the Render Sequence and Proxy Sequence controls in the Files rollout.
Enable
When enabled, load and display a mesh in the viewport. When disabled, show no mesh in the viewport.
Display:
When set to Mesh, the complete content of the XMesh file sequence set for viewport display will be loaded and shown in the viewport.
When set to Box, only the Bounding Box of the XMesh file (calculated and written to the .XMesh XML file at saving time) will be read and drawn in the viewport.
When set to Verts, only the Vertex .XMdat component file of the frame will be loaded (thus skipping the loading of all other channel files) and the vertices will be shown as large dots, with optional Percent control to show a fraction of the vertices.
When set to Faces, a user-defined percentage of the XMesh's faces will be shown in the viewport (default is 5%), resulting in faster redraws.
Percent
Controls the percentage of Vertices or Faces to be shown in the viewport when Display is set to Verts or Faces. Default is 5.0.
Ignore on Render Node
When checked, no mesh will be loaded for viewport display when 3ds Max is running in network (a.k.a. Slave) mode. This is to avoid potential failure to load the XMesh loaded on the render machine when no viewports are available.
Render
Sequence drop-down list
Choose which sequence to use at render time. The sequences are specified using the Render Sequence and Proxy Sequence controls in the Files rollout.
