Maya 7 - ?

First - congratulations to Next Limit on all their hard work bring Maxwell Render v2 out.

A question:

I see Maya 7 is not officially mentioned. To what extent should I expect it to be incompatible with v2 ?

I guess I can still export .obj files to the studio.

Are old v1.x Maxwell scene files importable to v2 ?

Yes, MXS files produced by the 1.x Maya plug-in can be loaded into Maxwell 2 (and Studio). You won't be able to render directly from Maya 7 with Maxwell 2 because the name and command line parameters of the renderer have changed, so the 1.x plug-in can't launch the new engine. You can also export geometry from Maya to Studio in the OBJ format, but MXS is recommended in most cases.

Unfortunately, there have been too many changes in Maya so it's unfeasible for us to support version 7 along with the newer ones.
