Please note that upgrades for v1 and v2 are no longer supported.New Features in V4.1:
The new Denoiser feature helps to achieve clear images at a lower SL, and makes Maxwell up to eight times faster, depending on the scene. Instead of having to render images to a high sampling level, users can keep it low and let the Denoiser do the job, setting it to denoise at all SLs or at the end.
In addition, Maxwell 4.1 brings a number of new features, fixes and improvements, including: Optimized GPU-handling memory – paving the way to Multi-GPU in a future update
Maxwell | Multilight™ Standalone V2 – a FREE tool for light management, now with the possibility for animations and more
New Lights panel in Maxwell | Studio to play with light intensity
New illumination assets in the Library Panel
New material compatibility: MERL, X-rite AxF, Real-IES files
For the full list of features and specs consult the Maxwell 4 website.
