No problem at all. Actually, the Corona UI and moving around the website should be easy even for a sleep-deprived user, that's a good benchmark. We will see if we can improve it.

Start any render or interactive render in the VFB > go to the Post tab of the VFB > Add a new tone mapping operator with the "+" button > Select Photographic Exposure. Otherwise the photographic settings in the camera won't have any effect.

Great, thank you for your patience when discussing the issues with our support team!

Our team will look into this. I think it may be expected (something like what Romullus said: treating reflections as GI).

Hi, the link is

Once you finish a Premium Subscription purchase in our online store, you should receive an email informing you about the basics. It should also include a note where to find the additional tools.

Sorry for the delay. I can assure you that we are looking into this. We don't want to share any updates before we have some specific results and explanations from the dev team.

Translucency does not look correct, see attachment

We will look into this.

It looks like there is some overlapping geometry here, it's even visible in the viewport.

The shadowcatcher should be a single object. It should not overlap with any additional background object. The color of the shadowcatcher should be the same as the color of the usual background that you would use instead of the shadowcatcher (some orange hue in your case).

So you just start rendering anything and then try entering values like 0.8 or 0.9 in the VFB? Where exactly are you entering them? In the tone mapping operator values? If not, can you please show a screenshot where you are entering them?
Also, is there any difference if you use comma or dot? 0.8 vs 0,8
And last question: what exactly happens if you try to enter those values? Does it change to 0 or 1? Or maybe you cannot type at all and nothing happens?

Currently it has "fairytale" lighting. Sun is warm, grass is green, sky is blue. Maybe adding some more specific atmosphere could help? Slight desaturation and more misty, colder feeling? Or maybe an even warmer, peachy sunset?
I would definitely play with VFB tone mapping. Maybe even just enabling the ACES OT would help (if it's not enabled yet).

Can you explain what exactly seems wrong to you here?
To me, it just seems like an object casting a shadow from a small light source.

To compare the rendering speed of different versions of Corona on different hardware:

Set a specific time limit to get reasonable quality (e.g. 10 minutes).
Compare (visually) which image looks better (less noisy, higher quality).

The machine which produces a better-looking image within the same time is the winner.

@VIZSET as Tom explained, the ACEST OT operator in the Corona tone mapping stack is something like an advanced version of a LUT, which just makes your image look nice.

Could you please explain what exactly is your problem? You are saving an image from the Corona VFB, loading it into Davinci Resolve, and you are getting different colors?

These questions were answered in your support ticket:

You are right and I apologize, everything was clear and I hadn't paid the necessary attention. Everything seems to be ok now!

Definitely no need to apologize and I am glad everything is clear now. Thanks for confirming!

We have some promising results for the "render selected is rendering slower than region" issue. Watch out for the daily builds. :)
