Service Pack 1 for 3ds Max

In our ongoing desire to serve the needs and expectations of our customers, cebas Computer will periodically release Service Packs to enhance features and stability for your production usage. It is strongly recommended that you always keep your software up-to-date with these Service Packs.

Please be aware that this is a full install with all files, scenes, and manuals. You must completely uninstall the previous version of of your software from Add/Remove programs (not IPCLAMP) and then install the service pack.

You must download and install the new IPCLAMP update which is also available in your download area of the cebas shop. SP1 will not work without the new IPCLAMP update. You will need to uninstall your old IPCLAMP (from Add/Remove programs) and install the new version. You do not need to reauthorize IPCLAMP as long as you reinstall it into the same place/directory it was previously.
