Causes:

This is a known issue.

Issue: MAXX-55307

Solution:

Import animated materials via FBX.

  • Edit (Using Notepad) the 3dsMax.ini file (Location: User\<User Name>\App Data\Local\Autodesk\3dsMax\2021 - 64bit\ENU\3dsMax.ini)
  • Change the key "StandardMtlFBXImport" to 1

Now 3DS Max will import your FBX file with a “Legacy Standard material” and your animated materials will now come into 3DS Max as before.
