Preview Outline Highlight

Dumb Max tip of the Day: Turn the Preview Outline highlight

In 2016 version there’s a maya style mouse over object outline. It’s kinda fun, but can be distracting. With high polycounts it’s really slow and irritating. Mouse over a million poly object and max freezes as it calculates glow. You can disable it in the 3dsMax preferences.
