Guys, this is a feature of the "prevent black appearance" option for the lights. The thing is that it doesn't work in reflections or refractions. So your directional light will look white when viewed directly, but it will stay black when viewed in a mirror. This is not easily solvable because it's an unrealistic hack and because it's not exactly clear, in which situations the light should return white and when it should be invisible. For now, you can use a rayswitch material to circumvent this limitation.

Edit: So without seeing the scene and having more info, I would say that this has nothing to do with instancing!

Hi, I can confirm the issue! I reproduced it by creating a C4D Sky object with a Corona Light material with HDRI. Then I added the sky to a separate LightMix pass, yet the light still appears under the "Rest" pass. We will investigate this.

Corona, can you tell anything about why this is happening and what we or you can do about it? Any chances it will be solved with c4d r21 or corona v5?

Hi there!

I can confirm that there have been no improvements lately, indeed. But we investigated the situation and have plans on how to make the Corona Proxy behave much better. These plans are quite short-term, so I think you might see improvements in one of the next dailies in the following weeks or months.

Hello, Sebastian,

sure, you can use the private uploader (link is in my forum signature below every post).

I'm sorry you're having issues :-( Hopefully we'll be able to solve them together. Can you send us the BugReport.txt file that your screenshot mentions? Then we could see what is actually causing the crash.

Hi, how did you perform the manual installation? My suggestion would be to completely remove the corona folder in C4D installation directory (e.g. erase the whole C:\Program Files\MAXON\Cinema 4D R19\plugins\corona folder) and replace it with the corona folder that can be found after unpacking the installer. If C4D still keeps crashing like this afterwards, it must be something else...

Ok, I found what the issue is and created a ticket. Internal tracking ID: 383877463

Thanks, now I can access the rig. I will try to figure out what the issue with it is.

BTW, I tried both of the uploaders myself now and both of them worked flawlessly.

I'm afraid I cannot see the uploaded file. Neither on the Private Uploader nor on the Alternative Uploader. What was the name of the file?

Hello, Exactly

I will check the scene out and see what I can find out. I will delete it once it's clear what is causing this!

Hi tuami, I understand that this bug causes issues for you. We are figuring out what to do to solve it properly as the fix might be more complex. In the meantime a simple workaround would be to remove all the shared shaders and replace them with copies of the shaders before starting the Team Render. Of course, we don't expect you to do this manually, so this would have to be automated in some manner.

Thanks and sorry for the delay.

Yes, it would help us if we were able to see the scene. I'm not sure if it would be a good idea to PM us a commercially sold rig, but we can always ask for it directly. If you have the contact on this guy who made the rig, I could ask him myself.

If you figure something out, I'll be happy to hear about it (and other users potentially facing a similar issue in the future too)

Glad that at least the manual approach worked for you. And yeah, I'd also like to know why it wasn't working :-)

Without further information I don't have a clue as to what happened, but if you're interested, we can continue troubleshooting. You still didn't tell me, whether the server at least got the request for licensing from the client nodes...

And yes, you can use the Licensing server to license your main workstation too!

Oh, silly me! I'm so sorry, of course the solution that I gave you is Windows-specific. It should still be applicable to Macs, but let me find the correct path for the CoronaActivation.txt file...
