Maxwell 5 | Rhino for MacFloating License offers a brand new integration for Rhino for Mac, allowing you to work within the Rhino interface via a Maxwell toolbar. Also included with this integration is Maxwell Studio – our sophisticated standalone scene editor. This provides an additional workflow based on our Asset Reference feature, which allows live-linking to assets (.obj, etc) created in Maxwell 5 | Rhino for Mac from within Maxwell Studio.
The plugin + Studio workflow is bundled together in one easy installation package, and includes the entire suite of Maxwell tools.
Render engine built-in
Maxwell Integrations offer an easy workflow which allow you to compose, edit and render your scenes from a simple toolbar inside your usual 3D application.
New in Maxwell 5
New Multi-GPU engine
Fully rewritten MULTI-GPU engine provides more than 50x speed-up compared with a high-end CPU, preserving the Maxwell quality and delivering results in minutes or even seconds.
Cloud render service. Always ready for you.
The new cloud render service is integrated in Maxwell Studio and supported plugins. Just click a button and the Maxwell scene will be rendered by the fastest machines (96 cores) available in the cloud.
Additive materials in GPU
Materials with additive layers are now GPU-ready, increasing compatibility with the majority of Maxwell materials.
V-Ray scene import
Import native V-Ray scenes and convert them to Maxwell automatically. Only supported in Maxwell Studio.
Improved interactivity and stability
Add more variability and realism to your scene by randomizing texture properties automatically across multiple objects or tiled surfaces.
Light groups (Multilight)
Lights can now be grouped and controlled like single emitters in the Multilight 'emixer'. Useful to keep MXI files more compact, reduce memory footprint and decrease complexity in scenes with lots of emitters.
Support for high-resolution (4K) screens in both Studio and Render
Now Studio and Maxwell Render interface are able to accommodate to high resolution displays like 4K or higher.
Nested references allow for better management of large scenes with deep hierarchies, optimizing file sizes. Dependencies are now searched in several subfolder levels, streamlining assets management.
