Maxwell Materials

RealFlow's implementation of Maxwell Render comes bundled with a set of standard materials:

Node selection > Node Params > Maxwell Render > Material


Material files carry a MXM extension. By default, materials cannot be edited or changed in RealFlow. To do this you need the Maxwell Material Editor. This tool is only available with the Maxwell Render Suite, and not part of your RealFlow distribution.

RealFlow's library can be extended with free materials from the Maxwell Render Resources website:

  • We recommend using a dedicated repository for your external materials.
  • When a node's material is changed while using → "Maxwell Interactive" the render will be restarted automatically.
