I've posted a feature request on github
I hope someone has some insight to share about or better ideas.
Comments are welcome
one user report a crash with 3dsmax 2020, did you see anything like that, node based material editor + standard material?
Well I had that before, but your last 2 builds fixed already that crashing.
There should be a new conflict with another plugin perhaps.

I rendered the same scene with maxtolux 8.2.7 and with 8.7.9 and it is showing a memory problem.
see attached screen shots.
first is made with maxtolux 8.2.7 ram usage is constantly floating to max usage of 1.543... shoiwing pass 39, but it can run for 600 passes more and by stable ram usage.

the other 2 screen are made with new 8.7.9 taken at pass 42 and at 64

as you see the Ram is increasing by the time.. it will reach 13GB /14GB by about 100 passes
