A friend recently upgraded to a fresh version of Maxwell Render 2.0 and sold me his copy of 1.6. He’s out of contact for a while, and I’m having trouble installing it. The standalone installs fine, but the Maxwell plugin for C4D (cinemaxwell) is giving me a real headache.
I’m using C4D 10 on a Mac 10.5 machine. Whenever I put the maxwell folder into my plugins, C4D freezes when it starts back up. I can remove files and trace it back to maxwell.dylib which, when taken out, doesn’t freeze the program. Of course, the plugin doesn’t work then, either… so that’s the problem.
Geez–I spend all day looking for a solution, and the second I post, I find one!
For anyone else having this problem, just download the latest copy of the Maxwell plugins (they say for Windows, but will work on your 64-bit Mac). They seem to be back-compatible for earlier versions.
The 2.0 plugin works, but after setting up a scene and trying to render, it doesn’t seem to be compatible with the 1.6 I have installed. Does anyone know where I might be able to find a copy of the Maxwell 1.6 C4D plugin?
