I rendered 48 frames animation via "Render Sequence in Maxwell" in Maya 2018.
After I clicked on the button, each frame was exported as own file and then rendering process started.
When the rendering was finished I noticed in Task Manager that Maxwell takes 46GB of RAM (I have 64GB RAM).

Shouldn't Maxwell flush memory after each frame ? It looks like that previous data are still stored inside RAM.

Here is the record of voxelization history from the console:

I have the same issue in 3.2.1.5. But I export to MXS and then set up sequence render from Maxwell Render app. There were textures of very high resolution in my scenes and renders in 4K. I had to re-launch rendering 3 times for 60 frames, because after 22 frames Maxwell crashed because if insufficient memory (I have 128 GB RAM, but it somehow crashed on about 60-70 GB consumption on Windows 10.

So, after something like three weeks of evaluation[…]
