You can certainly make an infrared effect but Blender doesn't do it automatically because it would require a full physical simulation which it wasn't designed to do.

That could be several things. One thing to check is if blender is set to use the objects UV coordinates. Default coordinates are set to "generated". In the textures panel, go down to the mapping section and set the coordinates dropdown to UV.

To get the opposite views you have to hold ctrl on the keyboard and then press the numbers in the keypad. So if pressing 1 on the keypad gives you the front view, you press CTRL-1, to get the back view.

Same goes for the Right/Left view, press CTRL-3, instead of 3

Getting textures to come through is always a bit of a hassle. I don't know of any format that includes the textures inside of the file so you might want to get used to relinking them manually.

No thats possible... I thought you wanted to model and rig in blender and send it to max.
