A User Review of Maxwell Render Suite V3.2, Node Locked
Review Title: Amazing Quality and Simple
Posted by Douglas Brown, January 4, 2012
We purchased Maxwell Render Suite to be used in conjunction with SketchUp for rendering high quality presentations. Maxwell's quality is unrivaled and setting up lighting and materials is by far the simplest I have ever used.
Next Limit has created a multitude of plug-ins that allows setup of materials and cameras right inside of the interface you are comfortable with. Also, in most applications you have access to Fire, Maxwell's real-time rendering window. This makes setup even easier.
I have heard several complaints about speed on Maxwell's part and I have to say that render times are a little on the high side, but you do make up some of it with the time saved on setup. Also, multilight allows you to quickly tweak and create both day and night renders from one rendering which allows you to provide this to clients.
