Maxwell – 3D rendering software for architects and designers. Maxwell is legendary for its quality and realism, and delivers great results via a simple set-up, which lets you focus on lighting.
Next Limit has announced the upcoming release of v4 of its renderer. New features include:
GPU rendering – the new engine runs on NVidia graphic cards. All the technology under the hood is identical to the classic CPU engine – which means your images are exactly the same.
Maxwell Multilight Standalone – save infinite lighting variations from one single render
Lighting setups in real time
Work faster by editing lights before and after the render finishes
Create a lighting catalog for your client
Automatically update your catalog with different lighting positions or geometry
New materials gallery – the renovated gallery features a hand-picked selection of high-quality, optimized Maxwell materials ready to use in your scenes. You can search using the usual tags, such as wood, plastic or metal, but also by performance level – so that you can filter materials depending on your exact needs.
Rhino for Mac support – new Rhino for Mac plugin workflow, providing a live-link between Rhino and Maxwell Studio
Significantly improved Revit integration
