    Thank you! Good to know.

    One of the nicest images I've seen rendered so far. I wouldn't be able to do any better. : )

    Lamp Shade

    Andrew, I created the image below by using the emissive option of the Vray material. Applied a texture map from photoshop and a glow factor of 2. Maybe you can use a more convincing photoshoped glowing fabric, and maybe that will do?

    Layers AND sub layer system

    Hugo, I agree with Jsiggia. I group my layers for architectural purposes as you describe. That works great for me.

    The formz change I would most like to see.

    Justin, that would be awesome. Almost instant renders with close to the quality of the long-dead RenderZone.

    Image Options

    What is the scale your working with? It sounds like you're dealing with very small objects? If so, are there other objects in the scene very far away or very large? That may contribute to the problem. Why do you need the camera to be so close to the object and its shadow? I deal with architectural projects of various sizes; and very seldom are the shadows a problem like you describe. If and when they are, and I need an image of crisp shadows, I do not use full shaded display; I render in Vray. It usually takes as little as seconds to render the image.

    Image Options

    Santa, Make sure you don't have large plane objects casting shadows, such as the ground plane. Select the object and make sure that you deselect shadow casting see below. Also, Idk where you get 11 for shadow settings.

    Is Maxwell dead?

    I hope it still alive! Love their software.

    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.
