Can someone from NL answering this question please!
Is the Maya plug-in for MR 5.2 on windows 10 dropped?

Thanks in advance.

I asked that like a month ago... after seeing that Maya is being mentioned less than other apps on the web site.
Maybe they still have to compile it for 2022 or maybe they wanna make us stop using it :( ?
I'm still on V.4 and can't consider upgrading to something that will not be supported further.

Have you considered trying Maxwell Studio instead of a plugin? We've been using Studio with our DataCAD for years and the workflow isn't a problem. Maybe try the free trial version to see if it works for you? We upgraded from v3 to v5 and it's been well worth it, particularly with the new denoiser.

can you work on faces, vertices and edges on Studio, like in Maya ...? because many times I modify the model in Maya and it's a must for me.

We don't have Maya so I can't say if Studio can mimic everything that Maya can do. Studio does allow control and editing of all objects, materials, UV's etc. It also has an in-built modeller so there are primitives to use and edit. The best way to see for yourself is to download the free trial version and try it out. Our work is predominantly arch + ID so all the design and modelling is done entirely in DataCAD and any changes needed are just re-exported back into Studio which allows you to replace the existing object or part object with the amended one on import whilst retaining all the other applied settings. This only takes a handful of seconds so for us, works fine.

hmmm editing objects as delete a face from an object, pull some vertices, or extrude an edge...?
the whole idea of using a plug in is to enjoy the power of the 3d app for this and have the ability to quickly test everything without the need any manual intervention...

Hi Choo-Chee,

I'm not all that familiar with Studio's modelling features as we don't use them. I had a quick look through it but couldn't see anything that would indicate it has the same flexibility of Maya, unless someone else can chirp in with further comment, I'd say it's limited? I guess you'll have to keep lobbying Next Limit in the hopes a Maya extension gets added for v5.

thanks Mark, I wasn't expecting Studio to be that sophisticated as Maya :(
the down side is that after getting a new PC with modern Nvidia card, I will not be able to enjoy it in the way I meant to...

The concept of needing to use Studio for anything other than basic product or ArchViz work is beyond asinine from a workflow/pipline perspective. For anyone utilizing CGI for visual effects, for large sets/mat painting, or animation, it's a deal breaker.

What model / graphic card you’re using?
