Old plugin...

Recommended Posts

Hi Ben

 

Sorry for this topic (related to  old versions...)

After a break with MX, I have to run it again, before a general update (FZ included)...

 

So my question :

I run FZ 6.7.3 and MX 2.5.0

 

I've two plugin version :

 

Plug 2.06.2 (compatibility fz 6.7 and MX 2.6.0.0+)

Plug 2.04.0 (compatibility fz 6.7+ and MX 2.1.0.)

 

The plugin 2.06.02 create MXS files impossible to open in MX...  (error returned in the MX prompt)

 

2.04.0 works fine

 

Is it an known issue ?

What plugin version is best for my old versions of FZ and MX ?

 

merci beaucoup

Jean-Luc

Hi Jean-Luc,

 

Your 2.0.6.2 plugin is stating compatibility with Maxwell Render 2.6+, so that won't work with Maxwell 2.5. If the 2.0.4.0 plugin is working for you, then use it.

 

My records show that 2.0.6.2 was the last plugin in the formZ 6.7 series- so you are good on that end. Check to see if you have  a copy of Maxwell  Render 2.6 or 2.7 somewhere, or request a copy from Next Limit (I do not have a copy myself).

Merci beaucoup

 

I will check for Maxwell 2.6 or 7...

 

By the way, I've seen Maxwell 4

I would like to upgrade soon.

(after changing my computer)

Is there a hardware recommendation chart somewhere ? (especially fo CPU rendering)

 

Cheers

Jean-Luc

Oups,

Sorry last question..

With the diabolic couple mentioned above,

I do not remember if there is a way to produce a perspective with the vertical lines corrected (option Keep vertical lines straight)

(actually the camera is translated without this correction...

JL,

 

Support for approximating formZ "2D Perspective" views with Maxwell's Shift Lens was added in version 3.0.0.10. Due to inherent differences between "2D Perspective" and "Shift Lens," this does not provide an identical match, but rather a starting point for cropping, which can be readily refined in Fire.
