Clearcoat too please.
Getting a bit silly that its been asked for since beta and not addressed. Doesnt even seem to be on the trello.

Added to the roadmap : https://trello.com/c/JSS9VS64/161-clearcoat-material

So it has. Great news!

I seriously couldn't pick my top 3 :- D Outside of advanced PBR shader (with metalness workflow option, integrated Coating, Fabric Sheen,etc..), better tonemapping (proper filmic or something else), and caustics (real functioning) I would love to see Geopattern and GPU stuff as well.

I've said it before, but I think real, realistically usable caustics will actually bring about quite a significant improvement in image realism and aesthetics across CG as a whole, so this will always be at the top of my list.

Not so crazy, it works fantastically in Blender, but ugh....Blender UI. Never ever gonna be friends.

Of course, would be amazing if this ever made it into 3dsMax. Can ever Corona do it ? Or does Autodesk need to be begged to collaborate.

OK, that's fancy! But that's typically the kind of stuff that will remain on the bottom of my most wanted feature list. You know, the kind of stuff that works well with a teapot and a cylinder but not that much with a real production scene...

Let's concentrate on what offer real value and most importantly fix things that are not working properly since ages (like reflection override for example).

This should be added to the poll.


Good Luck

Like

- RTT via BB or DR not working
- CoronaWire size acting weird approaching vertices
- CoronaBitmap missing IFL support
- Distance map issues
- Denoise "rest" LS-Element
- Broken animated camera shifts
- Glass material override exclusion inside MS-materials
- Excessive noise with scene overrides
- Wrong screen mapped environment reflection handling
- Wrong results from maxscript calls in prerender events
- IFL updates in IR not working when used as submap + crashes if not
- <add_your_most_wanted_fix_here>

I have not listed fuzzy regions because I'm not aware of the current state (they have been unusable for me the way they worked - introduced with Corona 1.6 btw. but afaik they weren't touched since).


Good Luck



Edit: Yippie! We've got a "Rest" RE in V4 dailies!
Edit: Yippie! Glass material override in MS materials works now!
Edit: Yes! Crashes with IFL as submap are gone - IR updates still not working but hey...

I'm a GPU kinda guy who uses FStorm a lot nowdays (got a pair of 1080Tis and a pair of 2080Tis), so any GPU acceleration is a welcome addition in my book :)

I think tonemapping is fine in Corona, I never felt like I'm not able to achieve something there, so that's fine.

My top 3 would be Caustics (been asking for a loooooong time....), GPU features and Speed improvements - renders can never-ever be too fast! :)
