aiStandin/MASH netwrok not showing in viewport

When I build a MASH network using aiStandins, they do not show in the viewport when it is set to Viewport 2.0. However, they do show in Legacy Default Viewport. I am using Maya 2017 update 4, but I have seen tutorials using Maya 2018 where they do show in the viewport -- is this simply a bug in Maya 2017? Any setting I can change to make them show?

Hi guys!

Just letting you know that this problem came back with Maya 2020 and Arnold 6.

Activate your Legacy Viewport if you have problems with the instances in your viewports:

Thanks for the info.

Another reason to get 2018.

This seems to be a fix that was put in place for Maya 2018, if you see the below release notes it says:

  • Plug-in objects and scene assemblies instanced with a particle instancer, such as MASH, now display in Viewport 2.0.
