That is kind-of the point. I did this because maxwell ALWAYS has max settings on, so Im trying to get an equal quality render.
And yes, the second test is a little noisy, but 2 more minutes would have solved that.
one reason why the scenes don't seen the same is because they have different things as lights. In mental ray, I used area lights, but maxwell needs a polygon plane, and it cant use Mayas built in lighting system. I did try to get it as close as possible, though.
Also, did I mention that I was using photoshop while rendering with maxwell? I wasn't able to with mental ray though.
Also, what kind of scene would you suggest for the test?
