.mxi File Extension

Developer: Next Limit
File type: Image File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .mxi. Files with the file extension .mxi can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .mxi files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .mxi file?

The MXI file extension is known as Maxwell Image File which was developed by Next Limit. The Maxwell Image includes a photorealistic graphics rendering application. It also contains high dynamic range (HDR) image data extra render channels such as depth buffer, shadow channel and lighting adjustments. It is derived from an .mxs 3D scene file or from another imported image format and is used as the native output format for rendered images. MXI files save lighting information or the image based lighting settings, which includes the calculations for the light conditions in the scene that allows users to refix or recompute light settings in future renderings. It allows users to temporarily stop rendering and resume it at a later time, which is useful for generating partial previews. MXI format is always set as default output settings, but the checkbox can be disabled in case user wants to save it to another format. Files in MXI format can be opened with Next Limit Maxwell Render in Mac OS, Microsoft Windows and Linux platforms.

how to open a .mxi file?

Launch a .mxi file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .mxi file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .mxi files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .mxi file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .mxi file will open the correct application.

Next Limit Maxwell Render

Maxwell Render is a graphic software that helps in creating realistic images from a computer using 3D data. This renderer can be used as a plugin in conjunction with other popular 3D software such as 3D Studio Max, Autodesk Viz, Maya, Cinema 4D, ArchiCAD, Bonzai 3D, Form-Z, Houdini, After Effects, Lightware, Microstation, Rhino 3D, SoftImage XSI, Sketch Up, Modo, Nuke, Solid Works and Photoshop. It is made easier to use because users are not required to change arbitrary illumination settings because the software make use of unbiased algorithm and global illumination algorithm (GI). It makes use of realistic camera paradigm to render images. Maxwell Render may also be used as a standalone application. It supports various file formats such as MXS, NFF, STL, OBJ, XC2, 3DS, DXF, FBX, XML, DAE, LWO and PLY. It runs on any machine running Linux (on x86-64), Mac OS X (PowerPC / IA-32) and Microsoft Windows (X86-64 / IA-32).

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .mxi files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .mxi. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
