    Some maxwell material and grass tests

    To me this is the greatest strength of Maxwell: It makes your renderings look very real. Don't get me wrong V-ray does a very nice job, but not yet up to the level of Maxwell.

    formZ v8.6.4 released

    I have Webroot Secure Anywhere installed on my machine. It just told me there may be a memory leak in formZ. This is version Has this been addressed on the latest release for Windows? See attached screen shot.

    You remind me of myself when I first started experimenting with Maxwell. But you've taken it to a new level. Looks like you're enjoying it. Looks really good too.

    Flakie, I always wonder why when I see exhibit renderings, the lights are always cold. Is it a personal preference or do clients ask for this? Or is it a hassle trying to get lights to look right given the fact that there are no light temperature settings for Vray?

    Nice work guys! I always find it challenging when I have to render clothing stores interiors because of the hanging clothes. Rmulley, yours look good!

    Are you creating the final image by overlaying wire frame and rendered images in Photoshop?

    Looks like you had fun with these! Very nice.
  9. I use hidden line still quite a bit. It works fine for me. It's come a long way from older versions and it's much faster. Of course, if you have a very heavy scene, it will be slow, but I have yet to run into something that takes longer than 5 minutes to hidden line.

    formZ v8.6.4 released

    Also, Justin gave me a great tip a while back: Be sure to go to your workspace manager, under the Workspace menu and deselect "save between sessions". It improved things for me a whole lot.

  12. Question for anyone who knows: I found this render blade and wondered if it could be used for Vray for FormZ. This unit is actually suggested for Maxwell, and I found it from a link in Maxwell's render farm options. Since Vray for formZ works within formZ, I wonder if a machine like this could be used to render in Vray. More specifically, this render blade shows no graphic card, which to me, means that you cannot really open the model on that machine, and then send a command to render. Has anyone tried something like this before to use with Vray for formZ? I'd appreciate some insight. Thanks, Allan.

    Very nice!. What do you use for ambient lighting?

    Thanks Andrew. Yes, some of the materials are as selected by my client, not much choice. You're right, water would have added a nice touch. Rush job, haha, like most though. The lights are actually modeled fixtures with a very small plain light inside. BTW, it would be great if lights could be set by color temperature; like Maxwell's. You're rendering is awesome! Allan.
