first, check if the material editor set to LuxMaxCore in the renderer options.

if it does not work tried to update to the new version and update material previews.
if it doesn't working again let me know.
Thank you.
Thanks TAO .. i tried you suggestions , still got the problem.
I tried to unlock the Material Editor Renderer , change it to several renderers, lock it back to the LuxMark renderer, still the same problem.
I hope it is an easy bug to fix :|
Best regards

Brand new MaxLuxCore is coming soon.
Setup project updated and MaxLuxCore name is correct in remove application list now.
Complete new code for material to prevent 3dsmax from the crash, Completely crash proof even with standards renderer.
Fixed black material thumbnail.
Instead of 20 different projects for every single material, all materials are created in just one code so i can manage them better and also export them in just one dll and not 20 different (dlls) plugins. I will combine maxluxcore and materials and objects into one dll later but for the faster result, they need to be separated yet.
Plugin compile is at least 10 times faster for materials or helper objects and 4 times faster for MaxLuxCore itself so i can test everything much faster and better. (30 sec for all materials and 2 min for maxluxcore)
So many options are added by now and most materials are ready to use.
Also many fixes in renderer itself.
I hope that this build will be a complete one.

a quick look at new materials.

I need to mention, i faced a few problems too.
for example, material needs to be rendered at least 3 seconds to be visible or they will be entirely black especially in small size 20x20 pixels or sometimes 50x50 pixels.
so i set material editor preview render to 3 but it affects the loading of materials.

All new materials are finished and some of 2d and 3d textures are ready to use too, and much more so i think plugin in a good place and it can be push to the repository.
B.Y.O.B. i have a question here, Should i just push it directly or push it in my own repository in GitHub and then push clone it to luxcore repository or any other way?

I started to push the code, can we just change the name of plugin and repo to something like:
MtoL
M2L
MaxtoL
MaxToLux
i think its more catchy.
After all it's just a suggestion.

It is now "MaxToLux": https://github.com/LuxCoreRender/MaxToLux (I think MtoL may be a bit too short and may confuse people looking at the list of our repositories on GitHub).
