In this tutorial we will take a look at the workflow between Maxwell Render/Studio and 3D Studio Max. Although we will be using Maxwell 2, the information should be applicable for earlier versions as well. We will explore materials, lighting, and most environment and camera setups. But more than this, you will learn all that you need to get you up and running with Maxwell Render, and the Stand alone application Maxwell Studio.
