Corona Goodies! - User contributions / Re: Panorama Exporter

Hi DeadClown,

Damn fine Script I must say, well done and thanks a mil!

There is always a but or a if only... Soooo, If only we could also rende rout spherical panoramas to use in other software instead of 360deg 180 images.

By the way to do that I select my camera and choose Spherical Lens  FOV 360 & use rotary Shutter  Angle 180 deg? Is that correct? Then render the image and use the script choosing the Vbf file?

I will check the OS cache story for sure but I agree, excellent idea to grey material render and rule out any textures first! I used Corona Scatter as well as Forest Pack and HD Plants / xFrog Plants.

Paging is disabled though. Got super excited thinking it was the answer :) Any other suggestions?

Strange thing is if I hide my plants layers then it renders at 100%?

Hi Hi,

I usually open my task manager and watch the Cpu percentage hit 100% and then stay there during a render but something has changed. I now see my RAM go up while its parsing but then the Cpu hit 100% on handover but after a few passes it sinks to around 7% - 9%. It used to sit at a constant 100% and the renders are MUUUCH slower.

Any Ideas out there?

Yes sometimes I am lazy and Yes Corona rocks at speed and ease BUT....

Why is the material library site so empty? I cannot find a road texture at all. I could just search for an Asphalt seamless texture and create on quick but isn't there anywhere I can go to DL or buy a all inclusive material pack? The ones out there are dismal! There are 139 materials on there in total! There are more Maxwell Road textures to DL than 139!

This sounds like a huge rant but it's not supposed to be. Just trying to figure out where to get more Corona Materials from quick.

Anyone know?

Hi Anyone now how to sort this out without having to delete and recreate lights? Came in as an FBX from Revit.

ERROR : You need to either set shadows to Corona Shadows or disable them for all default/photometric 3ds max lights.

I am honourably sorry Miss Molly if this has been addressed already. I did search for FREE and COST and have been reading for some time. I now bow down to information delivered.

Is there still a free version of Corona and if not is the Alpha 7 at a price or time limit i saw?

I'm lookin gat other options in MAX besides Mental Ray or VRAY.

GO CORONA GO. ...hummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...
