Hey,
I want to create a light emitter out of a plane. I looked through the formZ Maxwell manual and don't see anything on the subject.

I imported a maxwell light material (from the files that came with Maxwell) and applied it to a plane. It just renders black.

Thanks.

Check the direction of the face normal (a display option under wireframe view). If it is wrong there is the reverse direction tool. Also know that the intensites are way off for some reason. I usually end up putting a VERY large number in the intensity field.
