Welcome to an entire new series of tutorial videos complimenting the release of the Maxwell Render plugin for Bonzai3d. I have to say that I am really impressed with Maxwell’s abilities and I love the integration into Bonzai. You are pretty much guaranteed the most photorealistic image possible when using Maxwell. It’s made to give you the same image as if you were really there in the scene using your high-end (digital) SLR camera.
Maxwell Render™ is a rendering engine based on the mathematical equations governing light transport, meaning that all elements, such as emitters, materials and cameras, are derived from physically accurate models. Maxwell Render is unbiased, so no tricks are used to calculate the lighting solution in every pixel of a scene; the result will always be a correct solution, as it would be in the real world. Maxwell Render can fully capture all light interactions between all elements in a scene, and all lighting calculations are performed using spectral information and high dynamic range data.
In this series of tutorial videos, I will show you how to use Maxwell Render via the new Bonzai3d plugin, and get extremely realistic, physically accurate imagery from these very easy-to-use yet robust modeling and rendering programs. This is the introduction video showing what the series will cover. Watch this one first.
