    Early Builds

    MXI placement problem was fixed so that's great news. I do have a new problem and I need help fixing it! I lost my material previews! Now it's virtually impossible to locate textures.

    Palettes not displaying properly

    That's a neat trick! I changed the icon size back to small(er) and now all of the contents are showing. If they disappear again I'll try this method and will post back here. For now fiddling with the icon size setting worked for me.

    Palettes not displaying properly

    Only the first issue I had which was preventing me from being able to see the snap options which I use pretty often. I can live without the titles on palettes. Thanks!

    Palettes not displaying properly

    Sorry, my bad. I just tried that and it made no difference.

    Palettes not displaying properly

    There's a list on my first post of the things I tried. Some are very similar to your suggestions.

    Palettes not displaying properly

    You mean to solve the palette titles issue? I tried that but it didn't work.

    Palettes not displaying properly

    Solved it! Woohoo! Here's the solution: Right click on the "Reference Plane Tools" palette Go to settings & change the "Tool Icon Size" to largest Repeat for "Snap Tools" palette Now I just need to figure out how to get the palette bar titles to display properly but that's not as important.
  9. I can't switch to GPU rendering -- can't find documentation for it either on: http://support.nextlimit.com/display/maxwell4/Maxwell+4+User+Manual Does anyone know if the feature is active? My software: formZ8.5.6 build 9897 Maxwell Render version 4.0.0.0 Plugin 4.0.0.5? (When I click About on Maxwell Render I can't see the message) My system: i7 6700K @ 4.8Mhz with 32G RAM Nvidia GeForce GTX 980Ti driver 373.06 Windows 10 PRO 64 bit

    Maxwell V4 GPU rendering working?

    Yeah, the last images were rendered with my CPU. The GPU isn't quite there yet. Once the GPU render quality matches the CPU Maxwell V4 will be the absolute king. The GPU speed is ~80% faster!

    Maxwell V4 GPU rendering working?

    Once they polish out the flaws on the GPU render engine V4 will be king. Render quality on "DRAFT" seems to remain the same as V3 -- except V4 is slower for some reason by about 25%. So you'll be skipping the "wait-till-it-works" process by not updating straight away so that's a good thing. Here's a new test I ran this morning with V4. Both images rendered to SL16 in about 3 hours.

    License stuck in demo mode

    I had a similar issue and this is how I fixed it: Uninstall Maxwell Multilight You'll find multiple "lic" files here: C:\ProgramData\Next Limit\Maxwell\licenses Remove all the lic files except the one that belongs to the formZ app: maxwell_formz.lic That stopped my formZ from trying to authenticate each time I started the program I don't know how to install Multilight without having the issue pop up again but for now this works. The lesser of two evils I guess.

    Maxwell V4 Activation

    Haven't been able to activate my license. Tried asking in the Maxwell forums but they were of no help. I'm running Windows 10 PRO. This is what happened: Removed the Maxwell plugin folder from the formZ plugins folder Close all windows Turn off firewall Install Maxwell V4 Open formZ Attempt to activate license: FAIL. I get the following messages: Activation failed! The license cannot be validated. Please contact us via the customer gateway. Uninstall Reinstall Open formZ Attempt to activate license: FAIL. I get the following messages: Activating license... Info This license has been activates 1 times. server info received. About to save license file... Invalid license type:maxwell_formZ Unable to save license data in the local machine. Please contact us via the customer gateway. Please help!

    Maxwell V4 GPU rendering working?

    Thank you! Rendering a 2560 x 1400 pixel image (72 pixels/inch) works fine. Tested GPU vs CPU on a small & economical 8 house project. GPU benchmark: 4,928.49 Nvidia GeForce GTX 980Ti @ 1076Mhz (~7% OC)ERROR: Maxwell Grass did NOT render. Rendered to SL14 in 7m:05s GPU reached 82°C with standard fan speed settings CPU benchmark: 548.14 i7 6700K @ 4.5Mhz (~12% OC)Rendered to SL14 in 1h:3m CPU reached 66°C with Corsair Hydro Series H110i GTX Cooling set to "Silent" The results are different in more ways than just grass. Even though I used the same settings it feels as if light was rendered differently. Differences are more noticeable on glass materials and areas under no direct light. Where can I learn more about the differences and when will the grass feature be available for the GPU rendering engine?

    Maxwell V4 GPU rendering working?

    Thank you! I found it -- I tried a couple of times but it isn't very stable. My GPU renders can't make it past SL1 before crashing and closing the program.

    Maxwell V4 Activation

    Yes, my Maxwell V4 is now active. Here's what I was asked to do after getting in touch with tech support @ Next Limit Customer Gateway: Re-install Maxwell V4 Download your licence from Customer Gateway Copy the "lic" file to: C:\ProgramData\Next Limit\Maxwell\licenses Run formZ and register Thank you!

    New Maxwell for formZ Early Build (3.2.1.6)

    This update requires an activation which I haven't been able to do since my license is already being used (same computer).

    form•Z 8.5.5 Update Released!

    If I download formZ online. Can I get the pre-patch version? I'd like to go back until this issue gets fixed.

    New Maxwell for formZ Early Build (3.2.1.5)

    Very cool feature! Thanks!

    Licence problem

    On my main computer formZ worked fine after the update. I updated both: the video driver and Windows on my secondary system. It must have been one of these two changes what broke it but I don't know for sure.

    Licence problem

    I updated Windows on both of my computers. I can't run formZ on one of them because I exceeded the number allowed of computers running with my serial number. Please help!

    Licence problem

    The anniversary update was more of a fresh Windows install than an update really. It's BIG and it takes several restarts. But yeah, your costumer support is second to non. I'm a happy formZer!
  24. Andre Conlledo

    Licence problem

    The new Windows anniversary update was probably what caused this problem. The code you sent me via-email got my formZ working again. Thank you for your quick response!
