MaxFlow is a versatile 3D Max extension plugin with multiple possibilities. It can be used in various ways, serving as a tool for scene data management or simply as a canvas for recording creative inspiration. MaxFlow is currently under active development, and more features are planned for the future to make it a tool that gradually meets your needs.
MaxFlow is compatible with 3D Max versions from 2022 to 2024 and supports rendering with V-Ray and Corona.

Control the rendering resolution of the scene.
Set the rendering output path and whether to save rendering elements.
This node provides input points for VrayEnvironment and VrayDomeLight to control V-Ray environment.
