In this video, learn about the local and web resources available in Maxwell Studio, along with how the History and Console panels work.
- [Instructor] To wrap up our review of Studio's panels…we have a few more to consider.…Starting with a new scene on the bottom toolbar,…you will find the Resources Browsers panel.…This panel is simply a file type browser…within Maxwell Studio,…allowing you to browse your local disc…specifically for HDR images,…MXM material files, and textures.…For each of these file types the Resource Browser shows…a preview on the right panel for these materials,…textures, and HDRI images.…
You can adjust the preview size…by selecting in the top right of the panel the blue orb.…To add a material to your scene…simply drag and drop it to the Materials panel.…A material can also be dragged from the Materials list…into the Material browser to export them.…Which is an easy way of saving and organizing…your own material libraries.…It is also possible to select several materials at once…and drag them to the Material browser.…Additional functionality, like being to create folders…and delete files would have made…the Resources Browser much more useful.…

Instructor Leon van den Heever provides an overview of the functions, capabilities, and material system of this powerful, physically-based renderer. He covers how to navigate the user interface and work with objects and the Material Assistant, primarily focusing on Maxwell Studio as the staging interface of the Maxwell suite, and on tackling actual rendering in Maxwell Render. Plus, he goes into the different types of emitters or lights that you can use to light your scenes, how to create and position the camera, and how to set render options.
