This update introduces some great new features, and a number of fixes. A complete list of changes to the formZ plugin may be found here. (Please note that the "Extra Sampling" feature is not yet supported by the formZ plugin, but will be soon.)

Enjoy!

Hi Mojo,

 

Thanks for your report. We have created a test project that reproduces the issue and have sent it to Next Limit for them to evaluate.

I have received word from Next Limit that the MXS Reference issue will be fixed in the next beta, which is not yet available. I will post back here when it is available.

 

To eliminate problems with release software, we need users to test the betas/early builds. We encourage all Maxwell users to download the beta during the testing periods, even if only to quickly render an existing formZ project and make sure everything looks okay. Thanks!

 

Many thanks to Andrew West, Steve B., and Des for testing and reporting in the previous beta cycle!

I am having a little trouble finding this in  version 3.1:

 

Added 'Hide from Camera in Shadow Channel' option. (Maxwell Object Attributes) 

The only way I can hide an object from the camera seems to be to launch Studio, select that material and then hide it.  Is there a way to do it within Form.z so that it does not show up in Fire?

The issue with MXS Referneces has been fixed in the latest Render Suite beta. (The plugin has not yet been updated, and still exhibits this issue in Fire... your finish renderings will now be correct, though.)
