It's interesting that you mention this. I quite often use Maxwell to create cubic panoramas but it only works if I create the six camera views with my host app (MicroStation). Attempting to setup the cameras with Maxwell Studio doesn't seem to want to work.
So for example in the Top
camera view, the thing that is curious to me is that the MicroStation export plugin sets the camera "Roll Angle" to 20520.000. If I then use Maxwell Studio to manually set this value to 0 and then back to 20520, I get the black render that you mention. It ONLY
works if I export the camera from MicroStation and I DO NOT
touch the parameters inside Maxwell Studio.
Here's an example of the "Top"
camera settings as they come out of the MicroStation plugin:
Code: Select all
Position X [539.000] [539.000]
Y [117.000] [174.000]
Z [-1038.000] [-1038.000]
Target Distance [57.000]
Roll Angle [20520.000]
Focal Length [18.0]mm
