Is anybody in NL working on better integration Maxwell into C4D? I think it was promised.

Yes, plugin is usable, but there are some boring limitations. Instances for example. I waited for Maxwell 1.7 if it comes with better plugin. But no one come. :(

Thanks for answer.

I don't know what's being worked on but generally I find the current 1.7 plugin to be integrated enough. If anything a bit too much for my workflow - I preferred the older tag system for Maxwell materials.

Except for a few niggly problems, I feel the new Maxwell 1.7 Cinema plugin is probably the best release so far.

100% agreed...

it slows down my workflow like hell since I work only through plugin... luckely the old tags still work... I keep importing them from older scenes ;) although the mix of different mw release materials sometimes cause slight problems... but still fine for me

Oh your opinion surprised me! For me is Maxwell Material much better, then tag system.
And as I said. What i miss the most is better instance handling.

I think some users complained about the tag system before, and then they removed it in this new updated plugin. And now people complain about this new system. Life as a Maxwell plugin coder for C4D users can't be a easy one :D

Personally either system works, i adapt myself to whatever system is integrated.

spekoun: We all have different opinions in life! Instances can be used with the Cinema plugin - make sure they are at root level within the scene. A bit tedious at times but they work fine.

Maximus3D: The simple tag system worked great for me and it was one of the few things I never complained about! :)

I wrote BETTER instance handling. I use instances and I know they work. But i would like to group them. When i have 50 trees in root, it is a little annoyng.

I would like to read answer from NL, if there is some plan for C4D plugin. :(
