    I will allow change of window framings if you like as long as you keep the opening the same. Scaling elements like you said however, is not allowed.

    I really like this render engine!
    It's very slow..maybe fryrender clean faster but for exterior scene I think it will be fine even without a renderfarm!!
    One question...I haven't understand if interior scene are allowed...
    The focus of this project is exterior renderings....not interior.

    Quick tip for anyone while you're in "Fire" (at least in Max).

    The fire window will refresh on any change in the view port. This includes little tool-tips popping up as your cursor hovers. This can get frustrating especially if you use a Wacom. So be sure to keep your mouse completely still or lift your stylus away from the tablet otherwise you can get tons of unintended refreshes. So if you are experiencing what seems like jerky cleanup try this tip first.

    As for Maxwell being "Slow" on a mid-level machine you can load up an exterior scene @ 1280 X 720 with HDRI or Daylight and have a relatively clean image with Fire in about 5 seconds or less. From there you can interactively change the orientation and intensity of your HDRI, daylight-system time of day, Haze, color temp, material properties, light emitter properties, camera exposure, DOF. Pretty much anything but geometry changes without re-caching the scene! Granted if you have displacement, glass, SSS etc. things will slow down but the do still work. Throw an override gray material on and you can setup your lighting, exposure and DOF in near real-time. Pretty handy. This is a big part of the intended work-flow from 2.5X onward.

    Yes, you got it right - it's not like the big challenges with single threads per participant.

    You got something to show :-) ?

    Hi Leelou, I think that some furniture into the house visible from the outside can add some realism to the scene.. Otherwise the scene looks a bit fake and empty! This is my opinion

    Default gamma setup

    I have a little doubt....
    how do you set up your gamma in max to have linear workflow? 2.2 in preferences and 1.0 in maxwell??
    thanks!!!
