Elyaradine: Hey your right man, Thanks a ton! Actually, the first time I tried, it didn't work. That's only because I had to hit f9 then IMEDDIATLY press Alt+Space, otherwise the scene renders so quick I miss my chance and get the dialogue for the main 3ds max application window.
Anyway, worked like a charm, Thank you.
swytch: Hey thanks a lot for the kind words and great advice. Yeah, working at Escalation is a dream come true for me. Seriously awesome guys over there and plenty of cool stuff we are working on.
I hope the classes your teaching are going well man!
Vig: Thanks for the great advice as always man. I'm going to go ahead and install UltraMon here real soon before I forget. It was indeed because I switched up my monitors.
kodde: yeah, I'm actually using 3 monitors now, but I recently switched to 3 from 4 monitors. lol. Basically, there isn't enough room for 4 monitors on the crappy little desk I have. This all happened due to me moving to Dallas, but for some reason I thought the render window was working after I set things up here, and then disappeared. Seems more likely that it was never working with my new setup and I just hadn't realized it till recently.
I'm sure your method would have worked tho. Thanks dude!
