OS: Windows 10 pro 1803

Software: 3ds max 2019.1.1

ProRender version: 2.3.371(core 1.312)


Issue:  Max crashes when connecting 2 materials in the RPR blend node from the material editor in a new empty scene.

(See screenshot attached)


Taught of using the RPR blend material to mix a RPR uber material or RPR PBR material like the standard blend material of 3ds max.

Now I see that this is not the purpose of the material node.

Still needs a fix to prevent users from plugging them in and crashing.

I used the map blend instead.
