Hey, just want to confirm, interactive render is still not fully supported right? Just set up a simple test scene and IR crashed C4D.

Thanks

Alongside IR have noticed some other bugs and submitted them to the official bug reports board.
Thanks!

Strangely on initial testing I think A5 RC2 was more stable for me. Im getting freezing midway through renders with the official release. RC2 was pretty solid so not sure if anything has changed somewhere or if its just the file Im working on.

I have reported this as a bug previously and seems like Ales is working on it.

My workaround is this for now
In Camera object settings: right click  Focus Distance --> Xpressions --> Set Driver
In render settings: Enable DOF and Enable Override camera DOF. Right click "Perspective View Focus Distance" --> Xpressions --> Set Driven Absolute

Now you can control focus distance through the viewport. f-stop, shutter and iso is still controlled by the camera tag.

Happy rendering!
