"A new checkbox (Transformations) was added to the export options. Uncheck the box to prevent the export of transformation matrices for groups/components if objects are misplaced in Maxwell Studio. This provides a workaround for Maxwell Studio issues when Studio is not able to decompose the transformation matrix properly."

Quite curious to see if this works!

what is a transformation matrix in Sketchup? Is this the work around for instances that formerly imported to Studio all messed up?

There is no tutorial specifically pertaining to grass in the SketchUp plugin, but it works pretty simply: open the Maxwell Grass window, select a group, enable grass for that group, and set grass parameters. This is described in the plugin manual (the PDF installed with the plugin, and online, here). None of the parameters are specific to grass in SketchUp, so for discussions of those, just consult the standard Maxwell Grass documentation.
Texture/finish lost in render.
