What is Maxwell Render?

Maxwell Render is a standalone render engine for making perfect images, films and animations from 3D models. It is the complete solution for anyone who demands immaculate results on a deadline.

Maxwell Render offers maximum quality, speed, and compatibility for architects, designers and visual effects artists.

Why choose it?

It saves you time...

Maxwell Render uses no tricks and no approximations, it just does what real light does, From the core render engine to the camera model, everything in Maxwell Render is real world and correct. This is our obsession.

So that makes for great photorealistic images, ok. But getting images this good is complicated and takes forever, right? Well, no. In fact, with Maxwell you'll be counting the time you save in days, not minutes. The entire Maxwell Render work process is revolutionary - saving you time and money at every turn, from production times to decision cycles.

It speaks your language

Maxwell Render is all about the real language of light. There are very few technical concepts and you don't need to be a CG technician to use it/ Maxwell Render works just like a camera. with lenses, shutter speeds and f-stops, so it's quick and easy to learn. If you are a photographer or cinematographer, then you'll be talking the same language.

It's predictable and reliable

That's the thing about following the laws of physics - it means you can rely on the results. You won't get any weird results or surprises, so you can forget constant re-rendering and waiting around for tests. You can come back to your finished render and find exactly the result you wanted. Every time and on every frame.

And if you're dealing with animation/motion graphics, this means no flickering.

Quick and simple set-up

Maxwell Render has just one basic render parameter. Being based on the natural behaviour of light means that you can forget a while heap of abstract parameters like bounces, or choosing algorithms. You just decide on the quality/sharpness you require, and Maxwell does the rest. It's like a breath of fresh air.

Revolutionary workflow

The Maxwell Render engine calculates your image progressively, much like a classic photograph in the developer fluid. This means that you can see the essence of your final image in seconds, so you don't have to wait for it to finish like most other render engines. So you can make decisions much faster.

And with our real-time interactive preview, this experience just gets better!

It's totally unrivalled

Maxwell Render is the best quality renderer on the market. It's an industry benchmark, and creates photorealism like no other.

Who is Maxwell Render for?

Maxwell Render is perfectly adapted for 3D visualizations in design and architecture, as well as for film, animation and VFX.

Maxwell Render plugs into 16 3D and CAD platforms, which means you can work with Maxwell Render directly from your usual application.
And for any platforms that we don't support directly, you can imports to Maxwell Studio, our sophisticated standalone scene editor, to compose, edit, and render.
And uniquely, this is all available from a single license purchase.

Film, animation and VFX

Maxwell Render calculates your image progressively, and so renders can be stopped and resumed at any time. This unique approach means that you can actually overlap post production with rendering so that they take place simultaneously. It can literally shave days off of your production time. And because Maxwell is physically accurate, there's no flickering. Saving you yet more time.

Combine this with our Multilight feature, massive scene handling, procedural geometry for fur, hair and particles, and a python SDK for custom tools, and you can see why so many production studios are making the move to Maxwell Render.

Visualization for Design and Architecture

Maxwell Render has just one material model for all of the 16 3D and CAD applications that we support. So if you switch between platforms on the same project, say from ArchiCAD to SketchUp or Rhino- you won't need to convert the materials or the lighting. And you can use all of the plugins with just one license.

Combine this efficiency with Maxwell Render's impeccable accuracy, features like the real-time scene preview and our unique Multilight feature for adjusting lights post-render, and you can see why Maxwell Render is the professional's choice for architectural and design visualization.

Creative People

With Maxwell Render there are no abstract concepts to learn, and far fewer parameters to tweak. It's just less technical all round. So it lets you get on with the business of being creative.
