Hi guys

any progress on this? We are having the same issues, some of the files on some of the workstations can't be opened — it seems to be pretty random, some files are fine at first opening but then crash and it's gone. It doesn't happen on all workstations running the same version of corona though, not sure if that helps. Having said that a colleague of mine seems to be affected the most as she's been having issues on half of the projects we've worked on.

any help on this would be much appreciated. thanks!

If I were to specify what is most likely an issue I'd say it has something to do with corona scatter. I can merge proxies/objects of the scatters from the affected files fine, I can merge scatters on their own without their influences (scattered objects) but when I try to merge both scatters with all their influences 3DS max crashes. Hope it helps, really looking forward to seeing it resolved soon as it causes at a lot of troubles atm.

it's definitely not a scatter issue on our end as we don't use it, we are forest pack peeps

Hi Maru,
Did you guys have a chance to look at the scene I sent? Can you replicate the problems I mentioned and see any potential cause of the issues?
I'd appreciate any response on it.
Thanks!

We have managed to reproduce the issue in the 2 scenes that we received.
We do not yet know what is causing it.
It is marked as a "dealbreaker", meaning highest priority.

We'll be sure to update you here once any findings are made.
Currently the only workaround is to use Corona 2.

An update…
I tried opening with Max 2020 the same scene that didn't work on Max 2019 and it opened correctly, than I saved it for 2019 and now it works there too… (I couldn't keep working on it in 2020 because of missing plugins, like multitexture...)

Sorry, it was a different scene… Still not working!

Hi guys,
Are there any news on this issue? Our team has to go back to one of our old projects and we are having huge troubles opening the files. It's very important that we can use the stuff we produced at earlier stages, we cannot afford rebuilding things from scratch. It's quite urgent.
As mentioned in my previous posts, the issue is most likely associeted with proxies.
Any help will be much appreciated, thanks!

Hi all,

According to our tests with the newest daily (22.05) and 3ds Max 2019, both reported scenes now open and render fine.
This is most probably thanks to the "scatter in wire box mode kills performance" fix.

I am moving this to resolved, but please do let us know if some issues remain.

Hi Maru,
Great to hear that, thanks for your help on this!
We will download the latest daily later this week and test affected files.
I'll let you know if there's anything wrong.
Cheers!
