I've prepared an updated alpha build, with these new features:

* Added "rawafake" customizable fake sky model
* Added 2D fractal map
* Added ColorMapper map

* Added alternative color selection by black body radiator temperature
* Sunlight is now a separe light, properly selectable in the viewport

* Refraction attenuation added
* Improved refractive materials ("water in glass" type of scene)
* Added ward BRDF (supporting anisotropy)
* Added textured emission (textured lights)
* Added rounded corners feature (experimental)

* Added new volume fracal - Mandelbox
* Added ~30 render channels
* Custom VFB improved (start render button, save image button, speed optimizations for high-res renders)
* Added CoronaScatter - simple & fast scattering tool
* Added optional render info bar watermarking to the image
* Added support for MDO scatter plugin

Additionally, there are lots of general stability and speed upgrades (but possibly also new bugs ;)).

Attached are the builds for 3dsmax 2011 and 2012. Older builds are available on demand, build for 2013 will be available in about a month. All versions are 64bit Windows Vista/7 only. If you have older CPU (~ Core 2 quad Q6600 or older), use the version for legacy CPU, which is slower, but can run on any 64bit CPU.

The build is subject to this licence/disclaimer:,19.0.html

Installation guide:,2.msg2.html#msg2

You can quickly configure the renderer in a scene for production setup using the "Production defaults" button.

Thank You very much!
Can we hope for 2013 version? Please :)

I've tried to make it, but they have decided to force unicode in the API, that means, that I'll have to go through the entire application and manually switch it too. I am planning to do that next month.

Thank You :)

Thanks Guys,

This is brillant news
