This year’s FMX event in Stuttgart was a great opportunity to meet up with many of our partners and friends in the CG industry. We had the chance to catch up with the guys at MAXON, HDR Light Studio and Laubwerk, as well as some “out of office” time with our very own RealFlow team! Good news – HDR Light Studio and Laubwerk both have new versions which are compatible with Maxwell. HDRLS 5 plugins for Maya, 3ds Max and Cinema 4D all support Maxwell already, and Maxwell Studio compatibility will be out very shortly. Laubwerk actually announced their new Plants Kits 1.0.15 release at FMX, and this new version comes with support for Maxwell (free trial here) in both Cinema 4D and 3ds Max!
This added Maxwell support was first tested by Rob Redman, Creative Director at Pariah Studios, who used Maxwell and Cinema 4D for the testing. Rob was also our speaker at FMX this year! In this recording of the presentation, Rob talks about his pipeline and workflow, and also gives some practical tips on using Maxwell. Rob is a Maxwell Render Xpert Trainer – so listen up for insights into creating animated Multilight videos from one render, lighting & environment tips, cameras, materials, the importance of real world settings and more from this experienced professional and trainer.
Thanks, Rob! We hope you enjoy the presenation: Rob Redman´s Efficient and Fun Pipeline with Maxwell Render! 🙂
