Hey guys, I'm looking for your help on setting up my new Dell U2723QE monitor for Max/Corona/Photoshop and Windows 11 in general. Right now, my saved renders are looking different from the VFB when viewed using the Window 11 image viewer or PS. They even look different in PS when pasted from the VFB. I've set my monitor color preset as Space/sRGB via the on-screen menu.

System Settings:

PS Settings:

Every time I try to re-render a portion of an image using the region render tool, the rest of the VFB goes black. This is really annoying and unpractical in my opinion since it makes impossible to fix ONLY some parts of the image without having to re-render everything again.

I remember this never happened in V-Ray.

Hardware / 5950x, 7950x or 12900K for an upgrade?
« on: 2022-10-18, 02:57:50 »
After 7 years, I think the time has come for me to make an upgrade. However, this is making me feel overwhelmed for some reason. 3 main options are in my head: 5950x, 7950x and 13900K.

First of all, I'd like to determine which of those CPUs will allow me to re-use some parts from my current rig. Some of these parts are:

Cooler: Noctua NH-D15S
RAM: GSkill Ripjaws4 8Gb (x8)
PSU: Corsair RM750x
Case: Fractal Design Define S

I know 5950x and 12900K uses DDR4. But, will my current sticks work with those without causing any bottle neck?
What about the cooler? Will it work with any of those too? Same for the case.

On the other hand, I'd like to know how they compare in terms render speed. I've been looking at some YouTube videos and also some benchmarks but to be honest, I still have problems figuring it out. Is there any way to know how fast they are with respect to each other in terms of percentage? Like for example: X gives you 50-60% faster render times than Y?

I have no idea what happened. Email notifications has just stopped working for me.

Any idea what most be going on?

Hardware / New budget PC: i9 12900 or Ryzen 9 5950x?

Hey guys,

I'm helping a friend to build a new PC for 3ds Max and Corona. Right now he's trying to choose between a i9 12900 or Ryzen 9 5950x.
Which one do you think would be a better and why? Any help will be highly appreciated.

[Max] I need help! / How can I make a CD material?
« on: 2022-09-30, 05:50:07 »
I've been trying to recreate a CD material using Feodor settings from this post (reply #174):

However, I must be missing something since the result I'm getting is not the same. Would you give me a hand with this?

Hey guys!

I really need you help on this one. I'm trying to array two types of elements on a bunch of curved metallic tubes as shown on the attached image. These will be a bunch of really big chandelier on an auditorium. Objects must be scattered perpendicular to the normals of the tube and only on the sides of it, not on the top or bottom. They should also follow the ordered shown in the image: red, green, red, green, etc.

Is this a work for Chaos Scatter of should I look for something else?

[Max] I need help! / Best Max system units for Corona?
« on: 2022-09-21, 02:42:28 »
Is there any advantage of using one Max system unit over the other when working with Corona?


I have a friend who is willing to build/buy a PC for Max and Corona. Since I've been a Corona user for some time now, he asked me about Xeon CPUS. He thinks it would be possible to get one from former servers at a good price. Unfortunately, I couldn't give him any advice since I have not a expert in this topic. So I told him I would ask in the forum.

What do you think? Does it worth it to look for a second-hand Xeon from an old server? What would the pros and cons?

[Max] Feature Requests / Better material properties order
« on: 2022-09-01, 16:38:54 »
I wonder if you have considered changing the order in which material parameters are listed so it's easier for us to find the most used ones like Base Color, Roughness, Bump and Displacement. I think putting those at the top would help a lot (see image).

[Max] Feature Requests / Aerial Perspective for HDRIs
« on: 2022-08-06, 23:32:47 »
Would it be possible to make aerial perspective to work with HDRIs?

It could only affect the appearance of the 3D objects and not the HDRI itself, since HDRIs already have this effect backed in .

We created a proxy that needs to be used in different scenes from the same project. Our intended workflow is to make further modifications to the original asset, re-export it as a proxy and then re-load it on the other scenes. However, we haven't been able to load it with materials in the new scenes. Any idea why this is happening?

[Max] Feature Requests / White balance eye dropper
« on: 2022-06-22, 20:04:34 »
I'm really missing a simple option for adjusting white balance by just eye-dropping a point of the image, like in Photoshop or Lightroom.

Would that be possible?
