I have just released version Beta 2.00 of this plugin. This version brings support for Max 2019 as well as a handful of bug fixes and minor improvements. You can get it now on the download page.
Along with this release, I have also updated the recently-released manual to cover more of the plugin's features. If you have viewed the manual before, you may need to clear your browser cache (or ctrl+f5) to see the new version. I've reconfigured the web server so this problem shouldn't happen again with the next update.
I've just finished putting together the user manual for this plugin. It is still incomplete, but covers most functionality that is currently available. You can read it here.
It has come to my attention that most of AWS is currently blocked in Russia. I'm not sure whether this affects S3, which is where the downloads for this plugin are currently hosted.
To any users from Russia: please let me know in a comment here if you are having any problems with the download. If it is blocked I'll rehost it elsewhere.
If you find this inconvenient please direct all negative feedback to Roskomnadzor.
Edit: Actually, you should probably email me at email@example.com if you have any problems. I think ReCAPTCHA may be blocked as well and that would stop you from posting a comment.
Lately this news feed has had a bit of a problem with bots posting spam comments. I've just added some fresh anti-spam tech to the website which should help cut down on this in the future.
In unrelated news, work on the next version is coming along well. The next release will include support for Max 2019 among other things. I'm still not sure exactly when it will be ready, but it is coming eventually, probably within a month.
I have just posted a download for version Beta 1.08. This release includes a number of new features and bug fixes and is available on the download page.
Beta 1.08 is the first release to include the new shader exporter for Blender. This allow Cycles shaders created in Blender to be exported for use in 3ds Max. I've made a short video showing off how this works.
