I have no intention to swap Maxwell for V-Ray...
The concept behind Maxwell is clear and unique in the market: QUALITY!
As for V-Ray, the word for it is SPEED!
Yes I prefer quality over speed and I do know that with future technology, it will be easier to get more speed than more quality.
V-Ray ir widely spread because of this production advantage and actually they are getting in more quality with their v3.
So I agree with you Tok Tok, Maxwell rules in materials but those computers and fast renderings/previews seem a bit far for us, "defenders of light"! I ever never seen an example of this kind of speed with Maxwell...
My PC is exactly the same as yours Tok Tok... don't you feel you need more speed? Or you think the solution is spending $10000 on a new heavy machine?
... what is interesting is that most people using maxwell is "begging" for just one thing: SPEED!
Seems pretty natural, as for quality we already have it! So I hope this v3 is all about it either in previews or rendering!
