Feature requests / VFB - region activated
« on: 2018-07-26, 16:59:51 »
Hello,

A little but annoying thing in VFB region rendering that would be great to solve. Let's say you work on a scene, using region rendering to check things here and there. Then you save the scene, close 3dsmax, and reopen the scene later, open the VFB, region rendering is greyed out ... no way to know if it's activated or not. So you have to run rendering to discover region rendering is actually on, which can often be annoying to say the least. Please guys, would it be possible to either:

- make region rendering controls available when VFB is run for the first time in a scene, so that we can set it off before rendering if needed
- or display a warning message like "Region rendering was left activated, do you want to keep it on ? with Yes button (-> it stays on) and No button (-> it's set off)

What do you think ?

Thank you.

Feature requests / New Corona toolbar improvement
« on: 2018-06-06, 11:12:10 »
Hello :)

While the new in-house toolbar is globally very sweet, would it be possible to enhance the light creation part ? I mean, instead of changing the light type afterwards (plane, disk ...), would it be possible to choose directly what type we want to create ? for example, keeping the mouse button clicked would provide a "dropdown" buttons list, thus allowing to choose the light type ... that would be very practical.
For example, you can already use such a behavior with several buttons in 3dsmax: Transform Coordinate Centers (Pivot Point center, Selection Center, System Coordinate Center) , Snaps Toggle (3d, 2.5d, 2d), various tools "under" the Align tool,  various tools "under" the Array tool ...

Corona Goodies! - User contributions / Corona Proxies Tool
« on: 2018-05-04, 14:47:32 »
Hello,

Being an heavy user of proxies (CG for retail ...), I was missing such a thing for a long time, I didn't want a lister because of the nature of the scenes we work on. So I used the VRay Proxy Tool made by David Mackenzie, and reworked it to make it Corona-compliant. I just removed the undo feature I found useless. However, for some reason the progress bar seems a bit capricious, not sure why ... no matter for now, it doesn't prevent the script from working correctly.

Let's hope you'll find it as useful as I do for daily work !

Bye.

Resolved bugs / Corona AO and Light Material
« on: 2018-04-12, 16:26:49 »
Hello,

I'm not sure if it's a bug or if it works "as designed", so I'd rather report it. I've just noticed that AO doesn't work correctly when used in CoronaLightMtl, as long as Emit Light or Occlude other Lights options are disabled .... bug or feature ? :P
3dsmax2018.4, Corona v1.7.4

Thank you.

Bug Reporting / IPR loops with Material/Map Navigator open
« on: 2018-03-30, 14:44:57 »
Hello :)

Regular bug I'm facing: IPR seems to be stuck as long as Material/Map Navigator is open (Compact Mat Editor). It will continue updating/refining the scene correctly ONLY after the Material/Map Navigator has been closed. Please check this video capture: https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cFevl5DCgb

I need help / Very simple scene - rendering freezes !!
« on: 2018-03-27, 08:59:27 »
Hello,

I'm facing a weird thing with a very simple scene I'm starting to work on. Nothing fancy here, just the beginning of the project, walls and windows modeling ... but IPR is most of time not working ! IPR keeps on running, nothing appears, VFB full black. Sometimes I get something, but very looooooooooong to appear and/or to refresh.

Next step is to merge the modeled stuff in a new scene ...

Scene made on 3dsmax 2018.4, Corona v1.7.3.

Thank you.

General Discussion / Corona maxscript stuff
« on: 2018-03-20, 16:15:27 »
Hello :)

Is there any plan to develop the wiki dedicated to Corona maxscript parameters https://corona-renderer.com/wiki/maxscript? I mean, it would be great to have everything here: lights, camera, proxies ... or do I miss something ? I know everyone can use showProperties function to display the mxs parameters when needed, but still. I can help if needed ;)

Thank you.

Feature requests / DR - expanding rendernodes list
« on: 2018-03-15, 09:00:03 »
Hello,

So far, rendernodes list is limited to 6 machines ... not very convenient when you have to deal with more. Would it please be possible to make the list expandable ?

Thank you,

Regards.

Bug Reporting / Complex Fresnel plugin crashing
« on: 2018-03-14, 14:40:08 »
Hello,

Did anyone manage to use Complex Fresnel in 3dsmax 2018.3, using Corona v1.7.3 ? no matter what I do, I get 3dsmax crashing any time I try to add Complex Fresnel to my material ... with latest Complex Fresnel version (1.0.7, 3dsmax 2018 compatible apparently ...).

Thank you.

Bug Reporting / CMasking RE & Layered Material
« on: 2018-03-12, 10:38:40 »
Hello,

Just discovered what I take for a very annoying bug ... it seems there's no way to output a Material ID from a layered material using CMasking render element :( only the Base mtl is output, and not correctly, since the layer materials' masks aren't respected !
Any chance to fix that for v2, please ? very very annoying ...

Apologize if it has already been reported - I've quickly searched and didn't find any report about that.

Thank you,

Regards.
