Feature requests / Import picture in History VFB
« on: 2020-01-09, 11:06:35 »

It would be usefull to be able to open a picture in the VFB/History, so we could use the very usefull A/B comparison wipe with an old picture, not just rendered.

Possible ?

Bug Reporting / Very long to give back access after render.
« on: 2019-12-13, 10:04:29 »

Don't know if it is a bug, but i have a very annoying behaviour here.
The scene is very fast to use, and to render, but after each render, 3dsmax 2020 hangs up for 1-2 minutes (yes, minutes) before it gives me back access.

I can provide the scene, but not on the forum (customers's top secret scene ;-) ), so please tell me how i can send it to you.


Feature requests / material preset
« on: 2019-12-08, 14:22:38 »

Material library is great, but it could be fast&simple to get some material preset.
Ok, i have to confess, i've given a fast look at RedShift render : fast (GPU power), but not as good as Corona ;-)
But i've found that the small preset starter for materials is a great idea for beginers. (i'm 3D teacher in highschool, and sometimes it would help).
Pease have a look at the screenshot.

Feature requests / a better CoronaSelectMtl
« on: 2019-11-05, 16:37:17 »
Hello there,

The CoronaSelectMtl is very usefull for me, as i often create products configurators for my customers.
To semi-automatize the output of all colors (for ex), i usually use a multi/sub materials, then i animate the MaterialID with the material modifyer.
It works, but on simple objects / materials.
When i need some multi/sub materials for complex objects, then i can't really animate this way, at least hardly.

So i wish as a request a better CoronaSelectMtl on 2 ways :
- The possibility to have an aditional parameter for the selected material : a spinner so we could animate it and so output all possible materials on a raw;
- a CoronaSelectedMaterial modifyer, so i could animate the SelectedMtl ID, object by object, so i can output more complex raws of pictures with several combinations of materials...

Can you do that ?

Best regards.

Resolved bugs / Material Editor Slow with UVrandomizer
« on: 2019-08-23, 11:50:34 »

When i put CoronaUVrandomizer with multiSub material on losts of objects (here 650, with instances), the MaterialEditor becomes very laggy : each change of a param takes several seconds (10-15) to give hand back.

Also, the initial map is shown in viewport.


Bug Reporting / spots light with multimap
« on: 2019-08-12, 11:53:31 »
Hello there,
Not really a bug, more an annoying limitation :

I have several spots lights to place (standarts, to use nice volume Fx and directionality), in random flashy colors.
But putting a CoronaMultimap in the Map Prjector slot of the spot does not do the tric, whatever the mode i choose (logically "instance" mode)..

Any idea ?

Bug Reporting / 3dsmax Crash when merging scenes
« on: 2019-07-29, 14:30:32 »
Hi there,
Not really a bug, but an annoying behavior.

I'm used to have a Corona IR as my 4th viewport view.
And i DO have to think about to stop it before i drag&drop a max file to merge.
I understand that Corona does not espect for such changes in the polygons list, but if i don't stop IR first, 3dsmax hangs, then crash.
If it is normal that Corona can't handle new polys list when we merge a scene, maybe you could force the IR stop when you know that we are trying to open or merge a new scene ?

Best regards.

Bug Reporting / Please, report this problem to us.
« on: 2019-07-05, 16:32:57 »
Hello, here is a problem i'm asked to report.

I need help / Sending sampling mask to slave timed out
« on: 2019-06-12, 17:29:11 »
I have this error :

===== Error(-15) =====
Sending sampling mask to slaves timed out. Try to increase synchronization time or decrease maximum pixels per transfer.

What is it all about ? what settings are ok (default is 60s and 3000000 max pixels) ?


Feature requests / Is there any ram used log ?
« on: 2019-06-12, 17:05:07 »
Hello again,
With v3.2, when a render,node was running low in ram, i had some ram usage infos in the Corona Error Message popup, so i could see if my texture maps where far too bigs and so on.

The v4.0 seams not to give those infos anymore (see attached)

Maybe there is a log somewhere to find back the ram usage infos ?

Feature requests / Best viewing for rendernodes
« on: 2019-06-12, 17:01:56 »
the Distributed render is great, but i'd like to be able to see in once all the rendernodes.

Let me show you : (see attached picture)

Feature requests / To go further with "Set Focus"
« on: 2019-06-12, 15:54:23 »
Hello and congrats for v4.0 !

the "set focus" for depth is very usefull, but it could be made better :
Setting the focus on an object, i guess it uses the pivot point, so what about larges objects ?
Maybe a "set focus" mode would be better : with a precise point in the scene to focus on.

And even better, on the same way we can feather a region render, it would be great to have the apperture f/xx set with a few clicks : the main focus point and a range...


Feature requests / multiple Corona versions installed
« on: 2019-05-29, 16:02:03 »
I have a request : a way to co-install differents releases of Corona, so i can still produce my work safely, and i can test betas / RCs...

I could try betas and RC releases on another computer, but only my main one is very fast...
I'd like to be able to choose Corona 3.2 / 4.0 RC1 in the rendering settings dialog.

A bit like with Unreal Engine : you can have several versions installed so you can choose to test before switching.


Hello there,

I think i may have found a bug, for real !

Here is the situation : i've used a layered material and - for optimization purpose - the materials that are connected to it are rayswitch ones.
Of course, the raySwitch has the correct material in reflex / refrac / direct overrides, but a simplified one (dull color simple mat) in the Gi override.
The objects (and the preview) with layered material assigned are rendered with the direct look of the dull simple one, instead of the one plugged into the "direct override" slot.
See attached picture, the teapot should be shiny grey.

Also i've tried to put a mask (coronaColorMap) in the mask slot, to test : same issue.

Edit : Corona is 3 hotfix 2, tested with 3dsmax 2018.4 and 2019.3
