What’s New in 4.2.3?

Fixed:

  • Maxwell was not available as render engine in 3dsmax 2015 or older.
  • Maxwell Parameters camera panel was missing from Target and Free cameras.
  • The channels’ output formats were including HDR and BMP, which are not supported by Maxwell; it was saving the channels as EXR. Now those formats are not available.
  • Some of the channels’ output formats were not showing in their drop-down menus in Windows 7, as they didn’t fit in the box.
  • 3dsmax was crashing when the Object Properties dialogue was called and Maxwell was not the current render engine.
  • Scenes made with the previous versions of the plugin were not opening in 4.2.2. Now they will. (WARNING: please, notice that most probably the scenes saved with version 4.2.2, which was removed from downloads, won’t open in 4.2.3; the ones made with 4.2.1 and older will)
  • The interface of the new Material Preview Options in the Material Editor, was a bit misaligned and too tight on the sides.
  • 3dsmax 2019 was getting frozen when previewing Maxwell Bitmap in Material Editor in Slate mode and in some particular cases.
  • MxLight target line was disappearing from viewport as soon as the Mxlight gizmo was moved out of the viewport.
  • Some lines in MxLight Projector Gizmo were showing too big or too small depending on the units used in the scene.
  • The radius of the MxLight, Area type, with Geom set to Sphere was not changing in the render according to the radius shown in viewport.

Improved:

  • The falloff and highlight cones of the MxLight Spot type won’t show in the viewport when the light is not selected (so the viewport is cleaner and ligther).

RealFlow – Industry-Standard Fluid Simulation Software

RealFlow lets you create high quality fluid sims and is compatible with all major 3D applications.

Dyverso

Take your simulations to the next level with the astonishing quality of DYVERSO. Thanks to the powerful new DY-SPH and DY-PBD solvers and the addition of GPU acceleration, your simulations will be lightning fast. Exceed your expectations and build smooth layered meshes, making your simulations more realistic than ever.

Hybrido 2

For large-scale simulations, such as floods or oceans with breaking waves, RealFlow’s cutting-edge HyFLIP solver, Hybrido2, provides you with endless possibilities.

RealFlow’s grid fluid solver, also called “Hybrido” (hybrid large dimension liquid solver), is a sophisticated method of simulating medium and large-scale fluids. This technology also includes the automatic creation of secondary splash and foam particles, as well as mist. With Hybrido it is possible to simulate everything from floods to ocean scenes – scenes that are hard to create with RealFlow’s traditional particle emitters.

 

Maxwell – Professional Rendering & Animation Software

Maxwell Render is a go-to application for convincing 3D visualisation across a range of platforms.

Photo-Realistic Architectural Visualisation & Rendering

Maxwell Render is a standard in architectural visualisation and is built on an unbiased render engine that provides accurate-to-life lighting results.

Industrial & Product Design

With fluid integrations within applications like Rhino and 3DS Max, Maxwell provides users with an effective and convincing alternative to prototyping and photography.

RealFlow | Maya Available Now

RealFlow Maya

Now it is faster and easier to simulate granulars, viscous, viscoelastic, rigid, and elastic materials with an even easier and faster workflow. Achieve high-end GPU-accelerated simulations from inside Autodesk Maya by using the RealFlow | Maya plugin.

Following on from the popular RealFlow | Cinema 4D, Next Limit are providing a similar solution to other 3D applications commonly used with RealFlow. This plugin lets you create fluid simulations directly in your 3D platform, so there’s no need to leave your platform and break your workflow with importing and exporting.

It is compatible with Maya 2017-2018, and provides integration with native Maya tools such as nParticles and MEL. You can simulate all Dyverso particles and have the majority of RealFlow Daemons available to achieve high-end simulations.

To find out more, take a look at the RealFlow full product comparison.

Sign up for a free 30-day trial of RealFlow | Maya today or buy now at CADSoftwareDirect.com.
