Hi, My 3ds Max Default materials have been super white lately, instead of their default gray, and I have no idea why, can anybody help please??? :) Thank you!

It Messes up my renders too, everything is also super glossy.

Hello Remi,

First of all my apologies for the late reply, moved to another place and regaining access to the internet seemed to be quite...difficult for some reason :O

Either way, I never seen something super bright like this, but it could be the Gamma perhaps? At least..for bright appearance of materials and renders this could be the issue,
however: If everything turns out to be more glossy as well, that kinda makes me doubt that this is the case...another thing to double check is the render settings corresponding with the material type :notquitesure: Not quite sure though.

Could you eventually show few more examples & some screenshots of your settings (such as preferences regarding the Gamma?) Thanks! :)
