MaxwellZone tutorials

  1. This episode is dedicated to post production and finessing your render in Photoshop.

    Matthew Cherry ( shows us one of his projects where he integrates photographed talent into a virtual set rendered in Maxwell. Very informative!

    I go through a few basics of how to "develop" your raw Maxwell renders - the essentials you should do to any render.

  2. In this episode I go through creating a fluffy "shag carpet" using Maxwell Grass and possible materials for it (normal vs thinSSS material) and different ways to texture your carpet.

    Here is the link for the OffWhite material and a MaxwellGrass.xpr (preset file) where I've added two new presets: Shag Carpet, Shag Carpet Curly.

    Simply place it in your Maxwell 4 install folder/extensions-x64-v140/, and replace the preset file with this new one.

    Note: from minute 41 until the end, it's mostly banter :)

    *Note2*: After more tests I finally set the asymmetry of the thinSSS to -0.3 because this made the fibers brighter and gives the carpet a more fluffy look. I wouldn't recommend going beyond -0.4 in this case because it will start introducing too much noise.

    In Episode 1, I describe how to create a nice wet asphalt material with puddles, and Mirce from talks about his latest archviz project done with Sketchup and Maxwell.
