1964Phil MosbyAmazing results for stills, hope you have your own render farm
Review posted November 1, 2007
Maxwell produces amazing results. It's impossible to argue that fact, and after using the trial for only a week we went out and purchased two licenses for it. The only drawback is that it takes an incredibly large amount of time to get good-quality images (some of our more complex scenes are pushing 20 hours per frame on a Dual processor, Dual-Core Xeon machine) and this is impossible for us to do real animation with it at this point. If you have 100 computers with at least 12ghz per machine, you might be able to do animation but it would still take days to get more than a few seconds of it.
Overall, great product for still images, but wish it was faster!
