Maxwell Render

Hey, I was introducing Maxwell to someone else on the AM forums, and I thought that other people might want to know too.

If you're creating AM games in 3D, maybe you want to have a photorealistic render ? Maxwell Render offers great lightings and shaders for your scenes in no time. This is probably the best render engine for AM users, because it's versatile and can be used with a large choice of modelers.

Of course, like all other softwares, it needs a time of adaptation, but once you get how it works, you'll be more than happy to show your pictures.
You can see pictures created with Maxwell here : http://www.maxwellrender.com/index.php/gallery/images
They're all in 3D. Aren't they amazing ? :)

Be aware that Maxwell is quite expensive, but there's a trial version that you can use to make pictures for free and non commercial use. There will be the maxwell logo in a corner of your pic.

Have fun !

After searching for a render engine in order to help TKG, I discovered that Kerkythea seems to be a powerful soft, and it's FREE. It does the same kind of 3D render than Maxwell, but for free (open-source). The good point is that it's an external engine, like Maxwell, which means you can make your modeling with any soft, from bryce to blender, including google Sketchup or K-3D, and then export it to Kerkythea.

Kerkythea is a freeware software that can produce high quality renders without spending a cent on software licensing.

This render engine can import 3D scenes in OBJ and 3DS formats, which are the most standard.
