Hi all REALLY stupid question/problem. I've not used maxwell in a long time so I opened it up today to get my feet wet again and had the following problem.

I put together an entire scene, lights objects etc and went file/save as/ and named the file to save to desktop. Problem is when I open that file back up it opens up the render window? That window that shows your model rendering rather than the working viewport where I can move, scale, assign materials etc.

Can someone please tell me what stupid thing I am doing wrong here? When I save as the only option is to save as mxi so I'm assuming that is correct? Also I'm using maxwell studio.

Thanks for any help

Open Maxwell Studio first, then use the File>Open command to locate and load the MXS file -- simply double clicking the MXS launches it inside the Core Rendering App instead.

Best,
Jason.

or 'right click' > 'open with' and select studio as your preferred app to open mxs ;)
