Hello,

We update to FZ9 and try to add the Maxwell plugin weused for FZ8, but nothing appears.

For the moment, we keep FZ8 for rendering purpose until the Maxwell plugin will be updated... expect not a long a time...

Yes, I think the MaxwellZ 5 plugin is being rewritten or updated for FormZ9 at the moment. As soon as this is done I'll be upgrading my Maxwell 4 licenses.

Like you, I'll be sticking to FormZ8.6.5 for paying projects although I have upgraded to FormZ9 for one of my licenses to play around with it.

It'd be nice to get some news on how it's progressing...

I notice Maxwell 5 for FormZ is now available on the Next Limit portal. Does this mean the plug-in is also finished or is the 'glue' between FormZ 9 and Maxwell 5 missing?

They've recently sent an e-mail that pre-ordering is ready for the Maxwell Render 5 plugin! 

Yes, that’s great news. I just got the email too. And they’re advertising it on Twitter.

Contacted today, Next Limit told us that the Maxwell 5 plugin for FZ 9 would be ready next week. Be patient...

Tell me, you had to buy Studio AND the plugin together? I am asking this because I have a discussion with Next Limit about purchase.

We bought Studio and FZPlugin...

Did Next Limit offer that as a special package? I don't remember seeing it in any promotions. I only bought the FZ Plugin.

I asked because I have only problems with floating point license. With version 4 i had bought formz plugin and they gave the studio version as well. Now with version 5 only the plugin or the studio.
the problem with licenses is terrible, nearly all my support cases are going about it. Unfortunately never had a solution!!!

The node locked version license is always working for you?

and, I really be curious if users have problems with maxwell licenses as well. Hope to hear from all of you.

I think from Next Limit's perspective, they say that the license is cheaper now that you can buy the plug-in license and Studio separately. I don't actually know whether this is true, since it is such a long time ago that I bought v3 with the plug-in and Studio together.

I agree it would be nice to have a special offer to upgrade to a combination of plug-in and Studio. I'm still on version 3, which works for now.

In general I find Next Limit's support disappointing. When I start a support case, I typically get a first reply pretty quickly but after that first reply it may hang indefinitely.

Some of my problems:

  1. v3 refused to run freshly installed on my new MacBook. This was solved remotely after more than a week of emails back and forth. Turned out to be the result of a spelling mistake in a file name and the license file being misplaced in the directory structure which can't have been user error because it was a completely fresh install...
  2. I can't access the online materials library anymore with MXED v3. It used to be possible on previous machines. My support case seems to have been abandoned.
  3. Next Limit changes the URLs of their support database which means that links in blogs, tutorials and even on their own website tend to be broken. This is a real killer for community building.
