in my case though i can not click on the user name, but have to click on their profile pic to get to the pop up-ish box that shows that balloon on the right. additionally: this seems to be true for regular user profiles, clicking on your profile pic (or user name) does not do anything though. That ...

Hello, Thank you, Feynman, for making the effort to note everything down. I will review each of the points and create cards with the details for the developers so they can fix them. I'll get back to you in case I cannot reproduce the issue here. As a first glance, I noticed one thing, that leads me ...

Re: annoying bug- pay attention if you can't render a scene

Hi Dmitriy, I still cannot reproduce it. I have a scene made in 4.2.1 with all MxLight types, that renders just fine. At that moment of the preprocess, Maxwell is processing power for Multilight, then displacement, then motion blur and then processes extrasampling masks. That concludes preprocess ph...

I was wrong it is because of Maxwell Lights - please check I think as you updated lights for Maxwell/3dmax it cause this problem. Hi Dmitriy, Yes, there is a problem with MxLight that were created with 4.2.2. Actually, the problem was with that version that stored them incorrectly, so 4.2.3 and 4.2...

Regarding your old and new forum accounts, they are linked to your portal account now, but we can merge the old one with the new one if you want. Please, let me know through pm what would exactly like to do regarding username and email.

Hello Dmitriy, Thank you for reporting the problem, but I don't seem to be able to reproduce it here. I installed 4.2.1, generated some scenes (one with Maxwell Scatter, another with Maxwell Grass and another one with Proxies), and then uninstalled 4.2.1 and installed 4.2.4. They render fine here.

Hello John,
It would be interesting to open the output mxs file in Studio to see what's actually happening inside. Could you send it over?

If I'm not wrong, when you change the mapping type from Relative to Meters, the plugin is adding a new set of cubic UVs of 1x1x1m

Best,

Another way of accessing the converter is running its script, which you can find at C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2017\scripts\maxwell
It should be the same thing.

Well, if you can see the entry for that button, you should be able to drag it onto the toolbar, shouldn't you?

Yep, interiors are always slower than exteriors: light bounces a lot more instead of escaping into space; also using conservative materials that don't bounce off too much energy, is more relevant in the case of interiors. Using big fill lights, like a photographer would do, will improve the render t...
