Maxwell Materials are the key to great renders with Maxwell Render 4
Mihai Iliuta at maxwellzone.com has just released some great results using the advantages of having great materials
Just wanted to quickly show you some renders of a new set of brass materials created by Leonardo Giomarelli (ilgioma), which I think really demonstrate one of the most important things to understand about Maxwell – if you take the time to create realistic materials, the rest just becomes so much easier. And conversely, if your materials are crap, then your render will most certainly also be…crap.
Also, *DO* use the Maxwell material assistants to quickly give you realistic materials.
In these renders I just used one my HDRs and the “Advantix 100” tonemapping preset.
