I wonder if "active scene state" is not only a user made definition :) There no such mode/state/condition. The SSManager offer just capture and restore of scene state, and as before as and after that operations, the scene is open for editing.

Makes sense. I think that is the scene mats, render options etc. are stored inside some *.ini or better *.xml inside max root or other autodesk folder. Menage State Sets dialog is just a simple loader, but which file use and where is it, that is a questions?

interesting....

Up to Max 2011 am not aware of any way to get the active scene state. Maybe since Max 2012 there is new function for that purpose?
