Daily builds / Re: Improved Sun & Sky model playground!

we will consider implementing this as the next step, the first change was due to internal rewrite how sun vs. sky is handled

No disclaimer other than it does not support clouds. We are still running the separate research project on that one.

Will the older 2013 compatible versions still be available to use via subscription?
yes!

We will investigate the diffuse models when doing the PBR, as well as other changes, this is why this feature is currently ranked as the most development-intensive one in our tracker. I cannot tell in advance how the end result will look like and what models it will use.

Removed the previous tempban on jviz because some people pointed different interpretations of his post, so it is possible I misunderstood it as attack on romullus.

So nobody is tempbanned as of now, but please be nice to each other.

Changes on the roadmap are because we had a hackathon with chaosgroup guys and found several of their technologies useful - new cache that is more stable in animations, adaptive dome light sampling, and bloom&glare effect that is better looking, more customizable, and also significantly faster. The sky model is result of independent research.

The only downside is that we will probably not make the PBR material on time for v6 release. I am still not expecting the PBR material to cause any sort of revolution, Corona material is 90% there. I am worried that when we finally release it, people will still be disappointed, because it will not make their images magically better.

I will not address the ridiculous conspiracy vray theories. If there is somebody not burned out by dealing with entitled fanboys, please do it for me ;).

renamed. It is indeed not that often requested when we talk to people...

Aren't there more possible features to choose from? I kind of feel that there were several interesting requests in "feature requests".

feel free to nominate them for the voting ;)

This PBR mat option - does it mean simply adding roughness, metalness slots to existing Corona material, or it's something more fundamental, like sheen, clearcoat and other goodies, that's often advocated by Juraj Talcik? I have one vote left and don't know where to cast it :]

It is new material. It is not THAT fundamentally different from current Corona Mtl, you can think about it as changing the way controls are preserved and adding multiple tweaks at one time (roughness/glossiness switch, new diffuse BRDF, sheen, ...)

Version 5: removing better displacement and memory optimizations, resetting votes counts

13
Did you try current v5 RC? There are some optimizations, in our heaviest scene, the parsing time was halved

14
this is 99% windows issue. The real problem is that you have to run max as administrator for some reasons which should be fixable by autodesk, if it really helps...

Don't worry, we won't remove subsampling. We might introduce back the pixel blending, which could get automatically activated when subsampling is set to 0 (i.e. disabled). It is super-easy change AFAIK.

<rant>What really sucks though is that we are hearing complaints for 1 or 2 years about slow IR, and just now we learn that some users just disabled subsampling (i.e. they changed settings that makes IR fast, which you are not supposed to touch and broke Corona). And apparently everyone forgot to mention this tiny detail, and instead assumed Corona IR now just sucks. If you buy new car with 6 speed transmission, do you also use only speeds 1-5, and then complain online that your new car highway mileage sucks for no apparent reason?</rant>
