This is starting to move forward again. I'm preparing quite a big document for the new developers for Rhino in order to describe what we want inside the plugin so they can focus on the important things first and understand the whole project. I'm going through all the plugin, describing Jeremy's work and reviewing what I think can be changed or improved (with all due respect for Jeremy's work, of course; I know how well thought his plugin is).
We will try to first have an initial version including the basics for you to be able to work with Maxwell as soon as possible and then keep adding features. So, if there's something that bothers you about the plugin, something that you would do in a different way or just something new you would like to see in the plugin, this is the best time to express yourself. Please, let us know what you have in mind (while keeping your feet on the ground,
); hopefully, we can make it real.
Let me share something that Shigeru Miyamoto said and that is very true: "A product delayed to improve, eventually will be a good product. A product released in a rush will be always a bad product".
Don't rush it too much. I rather preffer to keep using Rhino 5 for rendering and wait for NL to do a really good job for the plugin than use an incomplete first release.
Honestly, I'm still a little frustrated for the way that NL released Maxwell Render 4 with half functionalities for the GPU rendering. IT IS NOT WORTH IT! GPU can only be used for basic rendering! It is a good software but it still feels like incomplete or released in a rush. Don't do it again please. Take your time and release something fully functional.
