    Renaming Clipping Planes

    I observe the same behavior. It should be much more fluid to rename clipping planes.

    New material naming

    +1 to this. Never understood why it behaves the way it does.
  3. If Maxwell support is removed, I must move on to a different modeling program.

    Can't load textures

    Image file should also be RGB color mode. CMYK files will not load.

    The formz change I would most like to see.

    +1. This was much more efficient.

    FormZ to C4D Workflows

    I will add that using .FBX export from FMZ is extremely efficient and reliable. Simply import into C4D. All materials/textures come in as they are in FMZ. I add cameras and lights, adjust bump and/or reflectivity and hit render.

    FormZ to C4D Workflows

    Using C4D brings me joy, every time.

    The formz change I would most like to see.

    This is the method I follow as well. One needs only make this mistake two or three times to change that habit.

    Is Maxwell dead?

    Certainly hope not as well. Nothing beats Maxwell in quality of light and shadow. Multilight is a wonderful feature.

    VRay and IES values

    Try adjusting camera parameters.

    OT: ArchiCAD File Conversion

    Any FMZ users out there who use, and be willing to convert a .pln (ArchiCAD) file? Would be happy to return the favor in some way. End goal is to have the model in formZ. Thanks in advance.

    Picking Inside Objects

    It seems this is expected behavior based on what Des is telling us and some trials. There is a companion to the pick tool called "Area Pick" which I never use. I suppose I need to adjust my pick habits. Old habits die hard!

    Picking Inside Objects

    There seems to be a persistent issue with picking objects that fall within other objects (think of object inside a room). See attachment for explanation.

    the instant alternative to hidden line

    Similarly, you can place all your layers in a layer group and then be sure to select "Material" in the "Override Attributes" option. Use the white material to assign to the layer group. This method allows you to maintain the original materials while still having the option to make fake hidden line images.

    Scattered textures fix?

    I encounter the same and I just manually copy/paste the texture to the new project texture folder, which is best practice and maintains tight control of your files. When many files need this, I simply use save as copy and have it collect all referenced texture files.
