Notes for 3ds Max 5

Luminaire class instances are not creatable in 3ds Max 5, they are only creatable in Autodesk VIZ. Luminaire class instances saved in Autodesk VIZ will load and function properly in 3ds Max 5 though.

It is possible to "unhide" the Luminaire Helper object in 3ds Max 5 by creating a scripted Luminaire object that extends the hidden one, and declaring the scripted one as "visible":

plugin helper MyLuminaire

name:"MyLuminaire"

category:"Assembly Heads"

classID:#(0x7463471e, 0x35cb7b96)

extends:Luminaire

invisible:false

replaceUI:false

version:1
