Bug Reporting Cinema 4D / Re: V5 Render regions
« on: Yesterday at 17:19:09 »
Hi mte,

we fixed some issues with render regions in V5 Hotfix1. Can you please confirm that your issues were fixed with that release?

[...] it will be implemented together or right after the 3ds Max version update.

It's exactly as you wrote, maru! We will add it soon after it has been implemented for Max ;-)

I understand your need and we will think about how to improve the workflow here, so thanks for the request and for the clarification...

However, my hint was not referring to the Layered Material, but to native C4D material stacking or whatever it's called (sorry for not using the exact name, which I don't know :-) ). See the attached image. As I said, the use is limited - you can only layer the whole materials on top of each other, not multiple maps inside e.g. a reflectance channel. But you can already do decals like this.


P.S.: Back to the original topic - now that I read you original message, we actually already support Projector shader, but there might be some issues with it. We'll be happy for any reports!

Hi Daniel!

I think I see now what you want to achieve... This is currently not possible, at least not exactly as it is described in the video. Sure, you can use layered shader, but it is a bit sub-optimal...

Just a hint - did you know that on a material level, you can already put decals on top of other materials? It's not exactly what you'd like, but at least gives you some options.

Can you post a screenshot of your setup?

Hi Daniel and thanks for the question!

This is indeed something that does sound useful, but I'm not sure of what exactly is your use case. Could you show it with some simple pictures or ideally with a simple scene?

Hi, it is possible that your system is not up-to-date... Did you install all updates for Windows 7?

Personal anecdote - I remember when I was a little boy (6 years or so), I used to go close-up to the billboards and be amazed at how huge the print dots are and how - looking at the picture from such a close distance - you cannot see the "big picture" looking at the dots :-)

I doubt anyone else ever comes so close to a billboard to ponder about this, even if the billboard starts at the street level...

Corona Renderer for Cinema 4D - general / Re: Team render

Hey, prince_jr!

Don't worry, once you reply to an older thread, it gets to the top and it's also possible to see it in a list of new posts, so we can definitely read that ;-)

Regarding the licensing, it's strange that none of the options work for you, but let me share with you yet another method of licensing the render slaves - see the attached picture!

Another option is sending just a portion of the scene that will still exhibit the same problem. Maybe a part of the scene or slightly modified scene might be less problematic?

Hello Houska
thank you for your offer, but first i have to ask my client if i may send the data.
Can I tell him that the data will be kept confidential?
Best regards Wolfgang

Yes, it will be completely confidential and if you request it, we can immediately delete the scene once we debug the issue.

I'm not sure if it's a valid question:  I thought that, with the monthly fee, I get Corona on my main machine, and 3 other computer on the team render... well, maybe I'm wrong on that... actually, my 2nd machine has Corona5 installed, is on net, but asy "No license loaded", and I don't know how to "give" it the license... if somebody can make my ideas clearer??? thank you!!!

Also, you can now activate manually using the Machine preferences in the TR client app. See the attached image!

It always seems to occur on still renders only, animations are fine. It also only seems to occur when the TR config is set to 'Automatic'.

Have you tried the new "Arbitrated" mode?

Hello, Wolfgang!

This is really weird and we haven't experienced such a huge slowdown ourselves. If anything, Corona 5 should be slightly faster, not slower! Is there any chance you would share the problematic scene with us? You can use the uploader that is in my signature below this post.

Hey everyone!

Thanks for the interest, we are well aware of the fact that Corona for C4D is sorely missing an official material library and we're investigating what the options are. After all, we don't want to hurry a half-baked solution for such an important part of the software. We will share more information in the following months.
