FormZ plug not working

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

All worked well on OSX 10.9.5, FormZ 8.5.4, Maxwell plug 3.2.1.4 and Maxwell 3.2.1.4

 

When I updated yesterday to FormZ 8.5.6 and Maxwell plug 3.2.1.6/3.2.1.4 and also to the latest Maxwell 3.2.1.5 i got problems.

 

The Maxwell render fine any old mxs file but when running FormZ I get the tools and Fire window, but no lights. Choosing Maxwell from the meny gives 'Maxwell is not licensed...' Fire complains: 'There are no light sources in the scene...'

 

I have re-register Maxwell and it says 'Activation successful...'

 

Any idea of what to try to get the workflow up again?

 

Thanks/ Bo

Also, if you opened an existing file without the plugin installed, and re saved the file, any Maxwell specific data such as a physical sky light would no longer be present in the file.

>Please try restarting

 

First thing! :-) I have also tried starting up clean without other stuff running in background.

Not the case. I cant create a new (I get no lights) or use an old intact file (I get Not licensed).

 

Though the plug IS loading as I get icon, meny and Fire window

 

But rendering an old mxs works...

 

The only thing that sticks out is that the plug and Maxwell is different versions (my earlier setups they always had identical version numbers, but that may be unimportant)

 

Thanks/ Bo

OK, here is a matris

 

 

fz 856

mx 310

pl 3104

OK

 

 

fz 856

->mx 3215

pl 3104

OK

 

 

fz 856

mx 3215

->pl 3214

OK

 

 

fz 856

mx 3215

->pl 3216

render gives license Q (Fire OK)

 

 

So something get of the track with 'Maxwell_for_formZ8_3_2_1_6.zip'

 

 

Do you have a plug 3.2.1.5 I can test?

 

 

Thanks/ Bo

Hi Bo,

I do not understand what you are reporting with the lights. If you need help with this, please write up numbered steps to reproduce the issue you are experiencing.

OK, lets that be on my inexperienced account...

 

It boils down to that the combo:

 

 

FormZ 8.5.6

Maxwell 3.2.1.5

And plug-in 3.2.1.6

 

 

Does NOT work, license problem...

 

 

But:

 

 

FormZ 8.5.6

Maxwell 3.2.1.5

And plug-in 3.2.1.4

 

 

does indeed work.

 

 

Thanks/ Bo
