Everything related to Maxwell Multilight Standalone.
By Anders Peter Amsnæs
Since Multiligt was released I have not once been able to use it without it crashing. I can load an .mxi but once I think about touching a slider the application crashes. I have gone trough different computers, new installs etc - it's allways the same.

Am I the only one having issues with multilight?

Hi Anders,

Does it happen with any mxi file or are you trying with the same one?

Could you click on settings (gear icon) and uncheck Fast Multilight Preview? You will see a small preview window will show up; then try again to see if it crashes when moving the sliders. If it doesn't, it could be due to the graphics card as Fast Multilight Preview uses OpenCL.

Please, let me know how it goes.

Hmm. May I ask which version are you using? or

We removed version for Mac as it had a problem with installation (the problem is not what you describe, but maybe it has something to do with it) and reverted to I suggest installing this one instead if you are using

Sounds good. I am using formZ, so it must be related to the plugin i guess?

The render/mxi was done on rebusfarm although it doesn't make any difference if i render locally.

I am not at the computer until tuesday, so can't try studio just now.

Hello Anders,

We noticed you had Scattering active in Simulens. That is the reason for the crash (although it shouldn't crash but only inform you that it is not compatible).
If you open the file in Maxwell Render, deactivate Scattering, save it and then open it in Maxwell Multilight, it won't crash.

It was also crashing Maxwell Render, but only with Fast Multilight activated.

Thanks for reporting the problem. We will try to fix it as soon as possible.
