This video goes into more of the advanced render options in Maxwell Studio.
- [Instructor] Continuing from where we left off…in the previous lesson and the Render Options parameters,…let's now take a look at the Extra tab's features.…The first section is Extra Sampling.…Extra Sampling allows you to define a specific area…that you want to be rendered to a higher sampling level…than the rest of the image.…This can help you to be much more efficient…since often you will be throwing extra samples…at your whole image to merely clear up…a single area within the image.…Basically what happens is that your whole image…will reach a sampling level of, say, 16,…which may clear 95% of the noise in the render.…
But then you can bump the other 5% to, say, 18 SL…to clear up that specific problematic region.…A very useful feature indeed.…Even as a beginner to Maxwell Render,…I feel it's worth knowing exactly how to use Extra Sampling.…The way to tell Maxwell where to apply the extra samples…is by using a custom alpha channel…that you prepared in Photoshop or similar.…Whatever is white in the map will receive extra samples.…

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.
