But normally there are all sorts of limitations in demos, from time limitations to limited resolution and/or watermarking, so it wouldn´t be of much use anyway. If i´m going to use Maxwell i need something that´s usable for production work, and unfortunatly i still very much doubt 1.5 is that.
The workflow seem to be the same as before, and to my understanding the memory handling doesn´t seem to be much better than before. (based on some of the comments in these forums)
To be honest, i really don´t have time to spend double the amount of time on every scene because of Maxwells instability and crazy tagging.
I´ll be buying AR as well, so i much rather skip Maxwell alltogether.
It may take longer setting up the lighting i need, but i´ll make up for that 10 times over by not having to go through Maxwell tideous scene setup.
With that said, i´m using 1.1 for a job now. But in this case it´s a completely untextured scene, which will be used as a base/guide for a matte painting, blown up in size and painted over. Pretty much all i can use it for right now.
