regarding Fstorm I will repeat my question from before:

I'm having a look at fstorm right now to determine the best approach for conversions... however I'm not really sure how useful all of this is. My personal "goal" of the converter is that each render engine conversion should yield a usable result - a one click solution with as few necessary adjustments from the user as possible.
What I see so far is that fstorm materials are rather "spartan", which is fine, because that means it's easy to translate. The maps, however, are pretty much all custom and either different or complete remakes of the max ones (like noise, output, falloff, gradient etc) with different settings which makes it basically impossible to get proper conversion results.
So, if there are any Fstorm users here I would be happy to hear opinions about that and what you think would be a useful conversion for you.

I haven't got any feedback on fstorm, neither here nor for the other converter I maintain, so I assume that there are very few people that actually need it.
Any sufficiently advanced bug is indistinguishable from a feature.

Uhm... that's an odd one. Haven't seen something like that before. Can you share the scene or strip it down to just an object or a material you can send me?

Hi Deadclown,

Thanks in advance.

I think that to have a basic converter is better than no converte.
For example switching to corona materials with most maps in a bitmap loader replacing fstormbitmap. Also glossiness.
The rest can be done manually for now and we go from there (?).
Let me know if you have questions. I’ll be happy to do tests and stuff.

Thanks.

Feature request time!

Original report:
https://corona-renderer.com/forum/index.php?topic=23023.0

Feature request:
One-click conversion of all 3ds Max Physical Cameras in scene to Corona Cameras.
(it would convert all photographic parameters, and positions of cameras and their targets)

Can we add the feature within the converter dialog to add the Corona Bump Converter to bump maps that aren't using it?

In theory, yes, but I'm not a big fan of adding converter maps to everything, no matter what it is. It's rather trivial to code it so I would prefer to have it as a separate script - for people that actually need it.
