Maxwell Render 1.5 is being released this week. We are sure that you will love this version with all the new features and enhancements. You will find that 1.5 is much more professional, stable, usable, cross-platform and complete.
A noticeable number of Maxwell Render customers have asked us whether displacement will be included in version 1.5. Throughout the past months, we have been working on a new system of displacement based on a new technology of geometry management that is a step beyond any current displacement or micropoly displacement. The philosophy of Maxwell Render has always been to innovate and to create new elements rather than implementing existing ones. In fact, the Maxwell Displacement is only the first step of what this new technology will bring you.
The development team and the testing team have decided not to include this feature in Maxwell Render 1.5 because some further testing is needed. We do not think that it is convenient to delay the release just for this single feature, so we have decided to release so that you can enjoy version 1.5 as soon as possible. The new displacement – with other additional enhancements like improvements in the material system – will be added very soon in a free upgrade that we aim to finish in about one to two months.
Here you can see a little preview of what is coming very soon:
