Hi Michael,
Great tutorial update to the first one, the Slate editor looks very cool. Anyway, I was able to make this work in Max 2010, but am having issues in Max 2013. When I try to adjust the values in MR arch, something is giving me a flat gray material. On the little material ball, the same settings in 2010 that give me the black outer circle/dark gray inner circle (both with highlights) are only giving me a gray solid with two highlights in 2013. Is there a setting somewhere that I'm missing?
Thanks
