Following the release of beta 2.02 and beta 2.03, I've made this short demo video showing off how to use render passes.

Beta 2.03 Release

Today I'm releasing a very small bugfix for the plugin. This addresses a few problems when using the shader graph editor on systems that use a decimal separator other than a dot.

Thanks to user Aritz for bringing these problems to my attention.

Beta 2.02 Release

After over three months since the last release, I am happy to announce that Beta 2.02 is available today. The major new features of this release are support for Cycles render passes as well as improvements to support for multi-GPU CUDA renders.

You can get this release from the download page. The manual has also been updated to cover all changes in this version.

In the next few days, I'll be posting a video going over the new features.

September Update

It has been about two months since I last updated this site, so I thought it would be appropriate to write a quick update about what is happening with this plugin lately.

For the next release, I am focusing on cleaning up the plugin's code to work better with multi-GPU CUDA renders as well as adding support for Cycles render passes. I hope to release this version near the end of October.

In the past I had also mentioned to a few people that I plan on porting this plugin back to Max 2015/2016 and had estimated that would be done towards the end of this year. I still do plan on bringing this back to older versions of Max, but it now looks like that won't be ready until some time next year.

I'm also still working on preparing some forums for this website. More info on that will be coming eventually but I'm still unsure about when exactly the forums will be ready.

Website Update

Today I have just made some major changes to the back-end software powering this website as well as some minor design changes across the site. I expect these changes will increase the site's reliability and help to avoid some of the intermittent downtime that has happened recently.

In other website news, I'm also putting together a forum where users will be able to ask questions and share tips about using the plugin. I'll be posting more info about this in the future.

This release can be downloaded immediately on the download page.
