    These plugins require the latest Maxwell Render Suite beta, available on the same page.
     
     
    CHANGES
     
        • Improved Cone light translation. Faster, more accurate, and eliminates issue where shroud geometry could intersect objects in some cases. Also, new falloff type parameter.
        • Improved IES light translation with simplified parameters.
        • Improved Projector light allows setting intensity via emitter luminance.
        • Option to export scene by Layers. (Maxwell Render Options > Scene Tab)
        • Added options for 'floating shadows' and 'floating reflections' in Fire. Useful for quick compositing with IBL background. (Fire Preferences)
        • Increased Fire back buffer maximum resolution to 2K pixels. (Fire Preferences)
        • Added button to release the plugin's Maxwell license. (Extensions > Maxwell Render > System Settings...)
        • Added support for HDTV and ACES color spaces. (Maxwell Render Options > Image Tab)
        • Added camera White Balance, Tint, and Sharpness controls. (Maxwell Render Options > Image Tab)
        • Added camera response presets (Maxwell Render Options > Camera Tab)
        • Added menu of common exposure presets (Maxwell Render Options > Camera Tab)
        • New option to mirror textures when using Autotranslated materials. (Material Parameters > Maxwell representation > 'Translate Shaded')
        • Added 'Hide from Camera in Shadow Channel' option. (Maxwell Object Attributes)

    FIXES
        • 'Package for Renderfarm' and 'Workstation Transfer' commands can again be executed more than once per session.
        • Projector Light image map can be loaded more than once per session.
        • openGL 'Shaded' bitmaps created from RenderZone procedural textures now exported properly to Maxwell.
        • If 'Scale Model' mode is enabled, MXS References are now correctly scaled.

    The focus point in Maxwell is the COI (Center of interest) of the formZ view. You can display the COI in the modeling window by clicking on the visibility icon of any view. This is very rarely necessary, however: Before saving views to the views palette, just select the object you want to be the image focus, and hit Extensions>Maxwell>Focus Camera. (I have mapped CMD-F to that function, so I just hit the key shortcut.) When you return to that view later, if will always be in focus when rendered in Maxwell.
     
    You can focus an existing view in your views palette by making the view active, performing the procedure noted above, and then saving the view again with the same name.
