This is a beta release of appleseed-max, an appleseed plugin for Autodesk 3ds Max 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Keep in mind this is beta-quality software and there are a number of known bugs that will be fixed in the next releases of the plugin.

Additional information are available on appleseed's users forum.


  • Fixed color shifting in SSS material.
  • Added low priority rendering mode.
  • Added custom tile size support.
  • Fixed issue #10: the number of CPU cores cannot go below -1.
  • Restored compatibility with Windows 7.


The following are installation instructions for 3ds Max 2015. Replace 2015 by the appropriate value for other versions of 3ds Max.

  1. If you have installed a previous version of the plugin, first uninstall it by deleting the appleseed folder from C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2015\plugins\.
  2. Unzip the archive to C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2015\plugins\.
  3. Launch 3ds Max, go to CustomizeConfigure System Paths...3rd Party Plug-Ins, click Add... and choose the C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2015\plugins\appleseed folder.

At this point the plugin should be installed and loaded in 3ds Max. Go to CustomizePlug-in Manager... and check that APPLESEED-MAX2015.DLR is present and loaded.
