How can we improve Autodesk 3ds Max?

Make max gizmo Y-up like

I guess Max is the only program with the gizmo changed to Z-up. make it standar. most users change softwares in a pipeline. It would be usefull to keep max in line with other softwares too.

    I agree with Shawn, give a y-up option, hell, give a x up option like modo :) But don't change the default. There's actually a lot of Zup programs out there, and changing that in max will cause a lot of instability.

    I have no problem with adding a User Preference for this. However, changing this in Max altogether is a bad idea. There may also be unintended consequences because of whether systems are Left Handed or Right Handed... and changing this across the board could destroy decades worth of scripts and tools.

    Considering the number of us who utilize Max (and other applications that are also Z up) it would be very annoying if this were enforced.
