  1. Come on guys we need your help to get NextLimit to respond and develop (co-develop) the future Maxwell 5 plugin for formZ9 at this stage on the Maxwell forum there are only '15' requests - that will have to be more than '100' to get any effect. and change their thinking. There must be more than 15 people using Maxwell or who want it... If your not already on the Maxwell forum - 'Join' https://forum.maxwellrender.com/index.php and add your support Maxwell 5 is huge advancement now incorporating the latest nVidia GPU acceleration for 'Fire' - rendering - additive materials and converts V-Ray scene files with more still to come - make it happen as well for formZ Rob
  2. The new version Maxwell 5 now supports conversion of V-Ray scene files and has cloud based CPU rendering available per instance. But this is the GPU enhancement Maxwell users have been awaiting plus much more, but GPU's are nvidia Cuda based cards which now excludes ALL new Macs ( Post MacOSX 12>) and that is an Apple decision.

    Nvidia GPU on Mac

    and sorry that's just not going to happen. Metal is not a priority while Apple has 'locked out' all nVidia drivers internal or external (eGPU card cages) since Mohave as you say...

  6. All I know is the Maxwell Render5 PRE Release offer is $276 (NL) or $316 (Floating) per individual license. What we are trying to determine is all the additional features ( still being released ) but we know that the announced features so far are big support for better GPU materials etc. Also waiting on confirmation of formZ plugin support. Soon as know I'll try and update. But plugins a separate development cost which is generally funded by sales and has another cost, probably that plugin developer(?) gets a share of the sale. By the Maxwell has an Annual Support Plan too
  7. I have just requested this specific information in regard to formZ from Nextlimit for Maxwell 5 & formZ 9
  8. It may be worth noting that the new Maxwell Render 5 details will be announced very shortly and it will be a significant update from v4. Watch for more details soon there will be a Upgrade Pre order before release.
  9. This seems strange - If you need to use the Floating license then this must be new problem and I assume you're up to date with latest formZ plugin and latest Maxwell Render off your ePortal then it is problem as you say with the RLM server and that is definitely a Maxwell Support issue as it sounds the same in STUDIO as well. There is not enough info here to comment more... need versions OS - Is RLM Server running? What does RLM say? https://support.nextlimit.com/display/maxwell4/RLM+License+Server https://support.nextlimit.com/display/maxwell4/Installation+and+Licensing and
  10. By the way I mean that after formZ 9 release we will see V-Ray Next soon after.
  11. All I know is that formZ & Maxwell Render are due for a new release very shortly and I expect there to be a new Maxwell - whatever that means, but they have taken a while to add any new updates and substantial new capabilities are expected and with V-Ray now moving rapidly towards the 'NEW' spec. So it is up to us that are keen to see Maxwell support continue to ensure that NextLimit works closely with Autodessys and and share specs now for all the new changes still unannounced from both parties. Interesting that Autodessys are in discussion to take of support for the future plugin? Does that mean that Pylon is out of the game?
  12. But the key part is Maxwell Render is about to have a major upgrade?
  13. Don't worry Maxwell Render development has been occurring in the background and I believe you will see very shortly a major new release of Maxwell Render. By the way it was never the formZ team that developed the Maxwell plugin as time marches on both programs formZ & Maxwell need some updates. All we can ask is that they are talking with the plugin developer so it is ready when their major updates get released shortly. formZ & Maxwell Render continue...

    Looking very good but still needs substantial noise reduction

    display components as boxes - crash

    Sounds to me like a Video problem. I think you might understand that using nVidia cards (980Ti) even on the old High Sierra is dangerous even with latest drivers 418.105 From Mohave MacOSX10.14 + on there is NO support. The future down't look good for Vray (formZ) unless they can support Metal now the new developers kit is only now just available Rob
