Warning: this is an outdated build, use Alpha v6 instead

Hi all Coronauts ;)
today is the public release of Corona Alpha v5. As usual, it contains all the updates and bugfixes from daily builds made in the last 3 months, fixing almost all of the bugs of v4. It is a subject to the corona licence, and you can download it at the end of this post. The build has an installer for the first time, enjoy! ;)

While I have your attention ;) I would like to mention some important milestones in the Corona project itself before listing the new features:
- The Corona gallery on the homepage was updated with some great artworks made since the last release, you can check it here.
- There is one exceptional project done with Corona, The Capybara Rebellion trailer. You can read short summary about how was the Corona used in the project here.
- Corona Standalone was published, allowing to render scenes from any 3D modeller capable of OBJ export. For inspiration see how duber studio uses it for automatic thumbnail rendering.
- Corona API was created, and is currently being tested by developing integrated plugin for Cinema 4D.


Major new features in Alpha v5
========================
- Added support for Forest Pack Pro and Multiscatter plugins (upgrade your multiscatter version if you are getting warnings)
- Added support for IES directional light emission
- Added hybrid glass mode (both refraction and transparent shadows)
- Added option to disable reflections/refractions of a light 
- Added support for normal mapping - CoronaNormalTex
- Added CoronaTexmap Render element

Bugfixes
========
- Fixed VFB freezing when using Windows 8 + Geforce 600-series
- Fixed problems with texture filtering
- Fixed CoronaLight display and selection in viewport
- Fixed crashes when using Point Caches + motion blur
- Fixed bug where renderer's subanims were not named
- Fixed problems with faceting when using strong bump mapping
- Fixed bug that caused some images to be saved cropped/black.
- Fixed excessive preprocessing times in some scenes
- Fixed bug disabling HD cache when using camera clipping

Minor improvements
==================
- Added support for multiple mapping channels for CoronaProxy
- Added support for vertex color channel
- Added support for asset tracking/repathing for CoronaProxy and CoronaLight IES files
- Added Top/Bottom Map
- Added new default gray value energy conservation algorithm

--------------------------------

I will now take a month break for SIGGRAPH, then next features to be added are distributed rendering, irradiance caching, SSS+media, and interactive rendering.

PS: Windows might pop up a message that the program did not install correctly - just ignore it.
PPS: You need to close all 3dsmax instances to succesfully install the new version.

You need to add highlight's over buttons in Installer.

Edit - Installer works great! Thanks. Just touch the buttons.

it means you wont get for example complementary colors when using colored reflection with white diffuse

Yes, should be working. But there will be a new version today or tomorrow (if I find some time to do it) with added normal map conversion.
Any sufficiently advanced bug is indistinguishable from a feature.

- Fixed bug where renderer's subanims were not named

- Fixed excessive preprocessing times in some scenes

subanims are now named? had some LOL when I tried to figure out where the passes number was at. for my Auto Coronizer BatchConvertor.

the preprocessing was caused by large multisub materials (iin my scenes that is) so this has been resolved now?

I'll put the plain archive with Corona files here so it does not confuse people in OP

PS: log the bugs to the appropriate section/mantis!

Great progress Zdeno. Saving money for better computer :-). 64-bit operating system: NO, Windows Vista or newer: NO, SSE4.1-enabled CPU: NO, Your system does not meet the minimal requrements to run Corona renderer ...
Will there be some version for Windows XP 32-bit? Also I read somewhere on this forum, that standalone version is not fully featured. Is this standalone V5 now the same as for 3ds max?

unfortunately no version of Corona will run on your computer. I think you are actually the first person to request x86 build... sorry, but almost everybody uses x64 nowadays, and there is just no reason to complicate COrona by supporting x86

Sorry Ondra for misleading Your name... Is making support for x86 time consuming job? I don`t care if it will be even buggy, I would like just to try it. Thank You for answer.

It would take me at least a day of work, Corona uses some APIs that are not well prepared for the change. And I would have to completely rewrite some other stuff too because you dont have vista or newer. Sorry, but it is just not worth it. I have an old computer that is capable of running Corona here, it is yours if you can pick it up in Prague ;)

Hi All I really wanna Get started with this great render but just have no idea where to start and Google didn't yield many results.

Is there some kind of PDF or video that goes over every aspect of Corona render ie: camera's, material settings, different GI modes etc?

There is just this:
, but I would suggest just opening an old scene, converting it to corona with material converter, and hitting "render" ;)

Thank You for offer Ondra :-))). I am from Ruzomberok - Slovakia...  I understand that it is not woth it to do x86 ... Anyway somewhen in the future I would like to visit You and talk about some software implementation and other stuff ... Or You can come to relax here to Tatras. I will take beer for You (as is written in license agreement) ... :-)

Hmm. After V5 one of my projects is crashing to desktop when i just try to add a coronaMtl to a Blend Shader ( i am doing this all the time using corona)...

     So, i tried this same file on another computer (work) and it worked ok. No problems....
     
      The only difference between the 2 3dsMax installs is that my machine at work had V4 before and then V5 (no daily builds installed) and my machine at home has all the daily builds installed on over another...RC1, RC2, Rc3...RC9...and then Alpha V5...

        Is there any relationship ??

I wasn't sure either if I should just install over daily build, whether it would over-write all or whether I should manually delete the older daily build.

you dont have to delete old ones and it will definitely not influence scene compatibility

Could it be configs problem? Maybe deleting old configs could help?

Hi Ondra, thank you very much for this amazing render engine.
Just 1 quick question. In this A5 release, for bitmap blur amount, do I need to change it to 0.001 just like previous release?

You can acess the gamma settings going to the ABOUT TAB and changing the mode to DEBUG. But there´s no reason to touch this settings, it´s already 2,2. :) But the setting is there, at least on the alpha stage.

I am guessing my issue is Admin rights but here is the issue.
Recently I found Corona Alpha 5 won't load, I re-installed with the installer setup with Admin rights, but my account is not Admin.
it installs the files, but they refused to load automatically. I can manually load them, but I have to do it every time I reopen Max.
Would be a pain to have to get an IT request put in every time I install, any help greatly appreciated :)

Corona will start and works well.

Very interesting renderer!!!

I've been hoping for a good unbiased CPU renderer...and to see that you intend to add distributed rendering is very promising indeed!

If you need early testing with distributed rendering, give me a shout - Im on four good machines at the moment.

Go to any texture you wish to view on your material, and display in viewport will work there.

hi Keymaster..  is there a way to set a "fast preview setting" inside corona?? ..  something like an activeshade?..  if there's not then how would you recommend to set the parameters for getting a very fast preview just for seeing if mapping is correct, lighting and that kind of things..

Hello,
Just wanted to ask what's the current plan on future releases available to wider public ?
Was looking for some recent info on this yet could not find anything of recent.
Can we expect any alpha release any time soon ?
I think many people would like to try the stuff added lately, esp. distributed rendering in my case.

I have a strange feeling that many people here are just trolling or have a rly big problem with understanding more than two words in english :D:D

I think people just became too lazy to read (god forbids making their own research). Also extremely selfish (halp me plz right now, right now!!).

Blah, i think that times when people will need a tutorial for using a tutorial are coming .... for real...

Juraj - I'm also seeing this - personaly i dont mind to share some tips as long as the one asking for them is polite, but on the other hand  if he is trying to get them the way you described, or whats even more frustrating "send me your scene so i can learn all the stuff and settings cuz im too lazy to spend some time and learn/test it by myslef at samplemail@gmail.com thanks!" - that kind of people are able to see my middle finger at best....
Don't get me wrong, I'm not that rude in generall, but people PLS! have some respect for the fact that most people getting good results in this industry had to work for long hours and work out things which you demand to get on a silver plate with no effort form your side ....

londonvisuals - RESPECT for your opinion! THANX..thats true! Iam not lazy. Many hours I spend thinking about this work. 17 hours daily. 4real! And  you understand it and you understand issues.

Juraj Talcik was reluctant

shadowman didnt willing to me..nobody did.

And problem is that.

Keymaster told me. Tutorials are old. But corona alpha 5 is new. So tutorial is not compatible with new version of Corona. But I thought, the tutorials are new and I have old corona. it is contrary.

When will come Corona 6 tutorials will be edited

THANX KEYMASTER!

Croftman - I wasn't reffering to Your attitude, but to all those people constantly begging to send them finished scenes with all the textures, and overall setup in generall.
Keep testing dude and you will get better and better :)!

Hi.
I rendered this scene in Corona Alpha v5.
I wand to export it to Corona Standalone build 2013-12-12 but the structure of export.scn, export.conf doesn´t match with Standalone samples. So I could´t open the exported scene in Standalone build 2013-12-12.
Let me know if exist a Standalone build, compatible with Corona Alpha v5.

Thank you!

there is no new progress after the released version, in fact, the standalone version released is much newer than A5 for 3dsmax

REad the FAQ, and theres no Corona Vray, theres a way to convert your scene from Vray to Corona. Just keep in mind that it does not convert light, nor It converts envirowment. Make sure you tweak your materials to desired effect before you render.

Just make sure that you read some forum topics this is a great place to learn a lot. Mostly check youtube vids.

and corona vray for maxwell ?

:D

Just a dumb question, I want to try the A5; I won't ask you when A6 would be released but more when it won't be.
Like ...could you tell me that it won't be release tomorrow or the day after ? :D
Just hate install desinstall on 'clean' machine ;)

Great things and amazing render time in this forum !!
All the best for this coming year (and more).

you can go ahead and install corona A5, it does not do anything except for copying about 6 files to 3dsmax folder. There are no registry entries or messing up windows folders

I'll put the plain archive with Corona files here so it does not confuse people in OP

PS: log the bugs to the appropriate section/mantis!

Hi Keymaster.
Thanks to share this great plugin.
This is my first post here. :)
Would that be possible to help me where to put this plain archive (Corona A5 manual) in max root directory?
I'm using Windows 7x64 bit with 3DS Max 2014.
Is it really needed to put in max root directory after installing Corona A5.exe? Please help...
I'm a newbie here please advise... THANKS!!!!

Hi Keymaster, I cannot reply in the Daily Builds topic. Cause it´s closed.

I´m using Corona for real work projects ( archviz) and in the future I´ll use it in animation projects!  I´ll be an future buyer.
I´d really like to test the new daily builds. I´d really appreciate if you could  lend  me an request key.  Thank you in advance.
