Can anyone point me in the direction of any tutorials/instructions for using the LUMINAIRE Max plugin?

If using Max 5, luminaire is not useful.

Luminaire is only needed with Max 4.

If you are doing lightmapping, consider gile[s]. It is far superior and easier to use than luminaire and also very cheap.

Duncan isn't supporting luminaire any more I don't think.

I would agree with BloodLocust on this regarding Gile[s].

However I think there is a tutorial on Blitzcoder to bake lightmapped textures and that works fine with lights rendered through MAX 5.

Gile[s] is by far the best way to go with this as it offers other features too and is less than 40.

Also Fredbourg is great at updating Gile[s].
