Maxwell Renderer v2.02
I have a licence for v1.5 and gave up using it when they decided to change their licence policy forcing you to pay for render nodes.
I'm interested to hear if anyone is using V2 and how you are getting on...? One feature that set this renderer apart from the others was the multi light ability to turn lights on and off after the render process.

i too wonder if that feature was ever useful or more of a gimmic... would your lighting procedure be to just throw around random lights in a scene all at once and then dial them later?

one example of using this feature is for architecture, lights on=night time scene, lights off sun on, =daytime scene. all from one render. another would be lighting a product with different light colours etc which clients always want to see various set ups this solves that. then there is the lighting of LEDs and LED screens, etc showing the product turned on and off in a render. all from one render.

As Dave mentioned, architechture renders can really make use of it as even when you turn a light on or off, is removes the reflection from the scene as well... and I used it once for rendering a radio with different indicator/screen lights on and off...
All that aside, is anyone actually using Maxwell?
