Maxwell Beta Available (3.1.0.1)

Recommended Posts

Hello Maxwell Users,

A new Maxwell Render Suite Early Build is now available in the Early Builds Area. For information about how to access the Maxwell Early Builds Area, please visit the Next Limit forum:

http://www.maxwellrender.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=41692

 

This early build solves the issue where MXS References with multiple objects were only rendering the first object in the Reference.

 

Note that the Maxwell for formZ plugin has not yet been updated, so this issue still occurs in Fire.

I haven't been able to make this Beta work. I get an error message straight away. 

 

I'm using the older one since I know the MXS references will show up on the final render and I usually run some tests before going for a final render. It'd be useful to have the MXS references show on fire too.

Andre,

Maxwell Render Suite beta, or formZ plugin beta is not working the way you expect? If the plugin, post your plugin log after attempting to render, and we'll see if we can figure it out for you.

I haven't been able to make this Beta work.

What exactly is not working? I do not see any errors in your log. Can you explain when and where the error occurs, and post a screenshot of that?

 

I do see that the your Maxwell Render Suite does not match the plugin version (so extensions such as grass will not work in Fire). Use the latest beta on Maxwell Render Suite if that is the problem.
