GROUND TRUTHQUALITY

Maxwell is all about quality. Period. This has been our sacred mantra for most than 15 years of development. Our secret sauce is a physically-correct unbiased spectral engine, which produces not only beautiful images but also lighting-accurate simulations. In fact, Maxwell is considered the ground-truth in rendering and CGI production. We strive to inspire others, and you inspire us.

MULTI-GPUSPEED

If you have ever heard that Maxwell is slow…well, it was. Our commitment to developing the most accurate render engine on the market wasn’t negotiable. The story has changed in Maxwell 5. A fully rewritten multi-GPU core now delivers final results in minutes and accurate previews in seconds, keeping physical accuracy intact. With multiple GPUs working in parallel you’ll get an unprecedented Maxwell experience. With Maxwell 5, time is now in your hands.

CLOUDSPEED

The new Cloud Render service allows you to access the most powerful machines available in the cloud (up to 96 cores) speeding up the render process and thus improving your productivity. Cloud render jobs can be easily dispatched from Maxwell Studio and the plugins, freeing the local computer from high CPU loads. Cloud Render helps you optimize your time and resources more efficiently.

INTEGRATIONS

Maxwell 5 is seamlessly integrated in most of the major 3D/CAD software solutions such as Rhino, SketchUp, Autodesk Maya, Autodesk 3ds Max, Revit, ArchiCAD, Cinema 4D and formZ. As an alternative, the standalone Maxwell Studio offers an independent production/rendering environment to create, edit and render Maxwell scenes. Render nodes and network tools for advanced deployments are included. Maxwell is available for Windows, MacOS and Linux.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTSThe minimum system requirements for Maxwell Render V5 are as follows:WindowsWindows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows 7, 8, 8.1, Windows Server 2012 or Windows 102 GHz Intel Core2 processor, AMD Athlon 64 or better1GB RAM minimum. 16 GB of RAM memory is highly recommended1.7 GB available hard disk space for installationAccelerated OpenGL drivers3 button mouse recommendedMacMacOS 10.11 (El Capitan), 10.12 (Sierra), 10.13 (High Sierra), 10.14 (Mojave) and 10.15 (Catalina).1 GB RAM minimum. 16 GB of RAM memory is highly recommended1.7 GB available hard disk space for installation3 button mouse recommendedLinux 64x86_64 distribution with a 2.6 Kernel and glibc 2.5Tested on Debian GNU/Linux 7 (wheezy), Fedora Core release 6 (Zod), CentOS release 6.5 (Final), Ubuntu precise (12.04.2 LTS)2 GHz Intel Core2, AMD Athlon 64 or better1 GB RAM minimum. 16 GB of RAM memory is highly recommended1.7 GB available hard disk space for installation3 button mouse recommendedGPU engineGraphics cards that support CUDA platform (Nvidia), running on Windows. No AMD or Intel will work, sorry.The drivers should be up to date.Maxwell, Pascal, Volta and Turing architectures are supported (for reference you can check this table); it could work on Kepler architecture but it could be unstable and the experience wont be good.DenoiserDenoiser is capable of running on CPU or GPU, with Nvidia, AMD and Intel graphics cards; it works with CUDA (Nvidia) and also can work using OpenCL either in GPU (Nvidia, AMD or Intel) or CPU.When using GPU, we recommend having a graphics card with at least 2.5GB. This number is actually dependent on frame size, 2.5GB is for 2k pixels square imagery.When using Nvidia CUDA, the drivers should support at least CUDA 7.0When using AMD, the Catalyst driver should be up to date.In the case you get an error message when using CPU about OpenCL ICDs, it will probably be solved by installing one of these packages depending on your OS:Windows: opencl_runtime_18.1_x64_setup.msiLinux: opencl_runtime_18.1.0.013.tgzThe Denoiser will first try to use CUDA, if it doesnt find a compatible card, it will fallback to OpenCL GPU (usually with AMD and Intel cards). If the image doesnt fit in the graphics card memory, you can then use OpenCL with CPU (which will use RAM memory).
