Corona Renderer 3 for 3ds Max (Release Candidate 2) is out now!

Everyone with an active FairSaaS or Box with Subscription license has access, and the download is in the usual location: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/mswauuv1afec8am/AAA5OKrd_QujokDM3mxQ7S40a

A Release Candidate is close to being the final release, but we need your feedback to catch any remaining bugs or other issues from real world testing.

Here are the changes in RC 2 since RC 1:
  • Fixed corona color picker not taking into account values entered via keyboard right before OK is clicked
  • Corona Standalone is no longer showing modal error dialogs in silent mode
  • Fixed undo/redo for Clear list option in right-click menu on "+" button in various object lists.
  • Fixed Clear list option in right-click menu on "+" button in Scatter not to cause crashes.
  • DR
    • DR server - Added an option to restart slave 3ds Max after each render
    • DR Server - Added a button for opening the folder with EXR images which were sent to master
    • DR Master - Added a button to DR render settings for opening the folder with EXR images which were sent from slaves
  • Lister
    • Fixed light Kelvin temperature is displayed as 1000 by default
    • Fixed scatter count and per square/cube controls being enabled even when the scatter object is switched to UV scattering
    • Fixed scatter per square/cube parameter not being displayed in chosen display units - the control now displays the correct value, but does not display the actual unit yet
    • Reduced the UI lag when creating scatter/light objects when scatter/light lister tab is open. More thorough fix coming soon


And just to catch up as we didn't do a post for RC1, here are changes in RC1 after the last daily build version:
  • Fixed incorrect shading result of CoronaRoundEdges map (in fast mode) on displaced geometry
  • IR is no longer restarted when switching between Bitmap nodes in slate material editor
  • Unified lister
    • Fixed crashes when the scene is reset or another scene is loaded
    • Fixed lister not updating when a new scene is loaded

Please post all bug reports, questions, etc. on the main Daily builds version 3 thread at https://corona-renderer.com/forum/index.php?topic=20851.390
