Title: 3dcenter.ru Corona thread
Post by: Ludvik Koutny on 2013-02-21, 12:06:50
Hello,

when analyzing where visitors of our forum mostly come from, we have noticed that many of them come from a Russian site 3dcenter.ru. Thanks to this information, we have found a thread about Corona on the site. Unfortunately nor me nor Ondra know Russian language so we have read the thread using Google translator, which gave us only very crude and foggy translation.

From that crude translation, i understood that some of the Corona problems have been discussed, and i or Ondra may be able to provide answer for some of those problems. So, here are the answers for some of the problems i understood were discussed.

So i would like to ask people who are both Corona and 3dcenter.ru members to pass these information to guys from 3dcenter.ru, and inform them that they are always welcome on our forum too. :)

I've already told them. :)

At the expense of opacity in tulle. Here I am personally satisfied with the result and speed. I'll try to do a refraction, but I do not see much sense.

Problem there was that in public A3 release (not nightly) there was a bug that would sometimes make opacity quite slow ;)

Thanks guys for your attention to us.
I have not worked for two years with 3d Max, now my main software is Cinema 4D, but the Crown has made me re-run the old software)))
In the future, if I can expect integration with Cinema 4D?
You will not be there for such competition - Vray integration worthless, Octane is not out yet, Arion and never will be, there is a mental ray but almost no one uses.
If I will be the integration of the first in line to buy it!

Great render Han of the G spot of the  bed

The displacement for bricks looks nice even if the closeup is a little bit smoother, but it's ok it's nice !

In my test on the wall displacement is very bad, which is a smeared.
How to fix it?

lower texture filter value in Texture settings, and/or lower max projected triangle size in Corona settings

Also, try tesselating the walls a little

Did you copy all the necessary stuff from corona into 3dsmax root directory?? Cause 3ds max is saying it's missing wxwidgets content(new corona custom framebuffer thing...)!

ask the guy who sent you the daily builds you should not have access to to give you the additional needed libraries (there are 4 of them to be copied into 3dsmax root folder)

My second test.
The stage was converted from Cinema 4D - in max. I remembered why I hated the max before :)
It is not yet finished.

No, dayliBuilds there doesn't extend, there is only public Alpha3, and as public scripts.
Simply local users not all know English, however as well as I :), and for them all is duplicated that is here at a forum.

I agreed with Keymaster.
Corona forum must be the origin for installation files, even it is an open Alpha builds.

I saw some discussion about portals, here is a comparison how the benchmark scene looks with/without them:
http://corona-renderer.com/stuff/bench-portal/

all differences other than noise are because of HD cache bias, not because of the portals.

I see somebody asked why on most machines he has very long "transforming vertices" phase. You can tell him to either move the scene+textures to a faster disk, or merging/attaching some of its objects together as a temporary workaround until A5 is out.

Looks like there is some discussion about comparing results from Corona to Vray. Google translator is failing hard, but from what I understood you are trying to compare pathtracing to pathtracing. You won't find significant differences there, as path tracing never blurs anything, and your scenes are too simple for any significant clamping to occur.

Nevertheless, there seems to be some difference in creases and dents, with Vray output being more "defined" (darker in shadows). This is not because of some interpolation of path tracing or faking in Corona, but probably because Vray by default completely ignores reflect color at secondary bounces (unless you turn reflect caustics on). This means, that Corona is giving correct results, and vray fakes the result by not computing a subset of light paths. If you turn reflect caustics on in Vray, you should get almost the same, correct image.

BTW, correctly implemented VCM, bidir, path tracing, light tracing, progressive photon mapping, etc. will ALWAYS give you the same converged result...

Are you serious about Bidir ? it's good now ?  WOW i missed its speed !

yes, they work. But they are still not fast (and never will be) for the typical scenes you guys do

It is so bizzare... Why do you even compare render outputs? You will never be able to match the glossy materials correctly, and even so the differences are too small. If some renderer has a decent gallery of high-quality pictures, then one can assume, that it is able to produce high-quality results, and then it is just a matter of ease and speed with which you can create such renders. And this is mostly subjective...

There are always limitations and difficulties in the performance of many imitation in all renderers. And like the "war" help to better understand the workings of a product, at least to me :).
Well, it's when I have time of course :)

Ondra, what are you think about that to make test scene with all existing features for hunting for bugs? This scene may be shared with daily builds and would contained all newly added features too.

something like scene in this theme  http://3dcenter.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=108803

I think that you can be to make it - as the most expert in  corona. Or someone from us could be make scene and you could be updated it
Title: Re: 3dcenter.ru Corona thread
Post by: Ondra on 2013-06-05, 20:41:15
in general it is a good idea, but a single scene cannot cover all possibilities - different GI algorithms, settings, lights, ... But is somebody would make it, it would be great. I can edit it, but I am too busy to make it myself
Title: Re: 3dcenter.ru Corona thread
Post by: Stan_Booth on 2013-06-05, 20:45:57
I know, but it would help to cut off many bugs in the first few minutes of testing

and many questions like 'how i can do...' could be to closed.

I'm still learning corona, but ok - i'll try to make scene

Hi, Keymaster!
At last I had time to write here!
Thanks again for a great product! Even in its alpha version, it is capable of much.
However, there is still much work. Can I help in becoming a beta tester?
