Hi. This made me curious, so I made some simple test with Corona 5, and based on that it's clear that bump and normal maps doesn't work the same way as displacement maps.

If your use two different materials and a black & white mask, it's easy to see, that bump and normal maps follow the materials as expected, whereas displacement maps unfortunately only works in the base layer.

When the mask is greyscale however, there might be some differences in how the maps blend (like in Marus example). Can't say for sure, since I haven't tested this in dept.

Hi. Is the HDRi set to "Environment" and "Spherical"?

Otherwise wee need to see some pictures showing the problem.

Wish there was, but unfortunately there isn't. Requested it for years :(

Hi. I think it's caused by your materials, but without more info, one can only guess..

Here's two things to check out:
1) The glass mtl should be set to "thin"
2) The curtain shouldn't have any refraction

Hope it helps. Otherwise please provide some more info about your setup.

Hi. Sorry to hear about your problems. I couldn't find a description of your pc specs, but if you only got 4Gb of RAM, that may very well be the cause of your problem. 3dsMax alone requires 8Gb as minimum. Regarding different 3dsMax versions on windows 10, then there shouldn't be much difference. I use all the mentioned versions on win 10 Pro without any problem.

Hope you find a solution (if lack of RAM isn't the case).

@DanNissn - Juraj talks about the Noctua NH 14s and you're listing the NH 12s. I'm not an expert, but I don't think they perform equal. Maybe it's a mistake?

+1 for that! Would be extremely useful for my work with city models and site planning :)

Well, then do it on 1 machine to see what's removed and where the new stuff are installed.

IIRC v5 is installed different than v4. So I think the best thing to do in this case, would be to use the installer instead of manual installing.

Hope it helps

Hi. What is the size (in pixels) of your original renders? Could be that you are rendering to small to get the detail you want. Personally I don't think your sharpening is doing anything good for your pictures.

Hi. I think the culprit is that OP had two instances of Max open at the same time. That's something that can cause problems - specifically in some 3dsMax versions. If this is it, then it's a Max problem, and not a Corona problem.


Hi Maru. I don't think this is what OP wanted. Try to think Curb-stones following a 3D-path (roadside) and see how you would do that. Just like OP I can't make it work.

Hi. Check out the displacementmap settings. Set it to "high dynamic range", and/or turn the level down (maybe somewhere around 8,5).

What denoiser do you use? Coronas High Quality or one of the AIs?
