Checked, looks like it works fine!

As C4D newbie I didn't understand one point:
2.Go Edit - mat preview - material default project- select  Corona_01(GI)
When and where should this be done?

In C4D preferences.

I placed it in a folded button for easier access of the materials (less clicky stuff).
It's a great script. Thank you!

This is great, thank you for your effort! The architectural glass is very useful, especially since i was using a variety of CPU intensive glass for buildings so far with caustics and absorption layers that took forever to render.

Great stuff!

Hi, mlon. I made them in the R16. The R17 works well. In other versions not tested.

We'll look into this at some point. Created a bug report:

Any chance you can re-post the files? They've been working great in V17 but i lost the files when IT rebuilt my machine for windows 10, and i forgot to backup the profile-roaming-maxon folder.

New download link https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2-k_RditlOBVEtSZWc1cGxsUEU
(Script not tested in the R18).

Thanks for re-posting files. Tested scripts in c4d r18 with Corona A6 rc 5 (core 1.5 (hotfix 2))

and works just fine, except the luminance material, which gives you a warning about the legacy emission value and to use the new corona light material instead.

Also a note about R18 and the recent build of Corona, is that there is a new 'corona' pull down menu option in the materials manager that allows you to create a light, portal, layered, ray or volume material. In previous versions you would have to right click, add corona material, and there were a few more material types that are no longer supported.
