A quick update: http://support.nextlimit.com/display/mxdocsv3/MicroStation
Thanks for all !!!
ps: for issues, I write to you, or nextlimit?
I'd just like to add that I've been using the updated plugin with Maxwell V3 and the integration is seamless. Once you've setup the materials for your project, the workflow can be as easy as the click of a single button :-)
There's a lot to like about Maxwell V3 but as a MicroStation user I particularly like:
* The new camera lens types (Pin Hole, Ortho, & Spherical 360° Panorama).
* Procedural textures.
* New material creation assistant.
* Image projectors associated with an Emitter material.
There are some features that are not part of the plugin but are easy enough to apply in Maxwell Studio:
* Referenced Maxwell Scene files.
* Grass Modifier.
* Double sided materials.
* Boolean cutaways to reveal the interior of your model.
* Overlay Text that can imprint various types of information onto your rendered image.
* Volumetric lighting.
* Pixar Open Subdivision surfaces. This one is VERY cool to play with :-)
* A Histogram in the Maxwell Render window that gives you dynamic feedback about your chosen exposure levels.
You also get 10 free Render Node licenses with every Maxwell Render license. This is particularly useful because as we all know, Maxwell Render can be quite slow at times. Since Maxwell's network render solution is so elegant and simple to use, these 10 free Render Node licenses will come in VERY handy :-)
And finally, if anyone on this forum is curious but apprehensive to try, just send me a private message and I'd be more than happy to help out. Maybe send me a small project and I can send you back the configured files so all you have to do is press the render button.
Happy rendering :-)
And it is also faster than V2 was ;-)
"ps: for issues, I write to you, or nextlimit?"
The Next Limit route is the best.
They need to receive feedback in order to prioritize resources.
I tried to install in ABD ss5 8 11 09 747.
Not successful - should it be?
