[Max] Resolved Feature Requests / Re: My few feature wishes
« on: 2012-05-28, 21:52:14 »
ok, so...
1: Doable, but not priority
2: just implemented
3: will implement today/tomorrow (hope)
4: Directly visible just implemented, rest will be done later
5: Doable, will do sometimes in summer. About the performance: material stuff takes about 20% of CPU time. So expect 20% slower rendering when putting 50-50 blend of materials on everyting in the scene. The slowdown will be of course lower if not all materials are layered.
6: wtf is that? ;) What does it do?

Ok, that should be easily doable, if I can defeat 3dsmax API... so maybe in some time ;)

Ad 1: you mean rectangle light with "target" dummy, right?

ad 2: easy (i hope; one never knows when 3dsmax is involved :D), will do shortly

Thank You very much!
Can we hope for 2013 version? Please :)

Thank You!
BR!

I've tried to make it, but they have decided to force unicode in the API, that means, that I'll have to go through the entire application and manually switch it too. I am planning to do that next month.

[Archive] Alpha Builds / Alpha build v2
« on: 2012-05-24, 20:39:48 »
Warning: this is an outdated build, use Alpha v5 instead

I've prepared an updated alpha build, with these new features:

Texmaps
  • Added Ambient occlusion map
  • Added Wire texmap
  • CoronaSky:
    • Added new, improved realistic sky model: Hosek&Wilkie - now default
    • Added "rawafake" customizable fake sky model
  • Added 2D fractal map
  • Added ColorMapper map

Lights
  • Added alternative color selection by black body radiator temperature
  • Sunlight is now a separe light, properly selectable in the viewport

Materials
  • Refraction attenuation added
  • Improved refractive materials ("water in glass" type of scene)
  • Added ward BRDF (supporting anisotropy)
  • Added textured emission (textured lights)
  • Added rounded corners feature (experimental)

Misc
  • Added new volume fracal - Mandelbox
  • Added ~30 render channels
  • Custom VFB improved (start render button, save image button, speed optimizations for high-res renders)
  • Added CoronaScatter - simple & fast scattering tool
  • Added optional render info bar watermarking to the image
  • Added support for MDO scatter plugin
  • Added override backgrounds - for direct/opacity/refraction  and reflection rays, and override material
  • Added contrast to color mapping
  • Added white balance to color mapping
  • Added CoronaProxy - simple geometric proxy object
  • Added support for multiple mapping coordinates
  • Added versioning to .conf files - no need to manually delete them when upgrading

Additionally, there are lots of general stability and speed upgrades (but possibly also new bugs ;)).

Attached are the builds for 3dsmax 2011 and 2012. Older builds are available on demand, build for 2013 will be available in about a month. All versions are 64bit Windows Vista/7 only. If you have older CPU (~ Core 2 quad Q6600 or older), use the version for legacy CPU, which is slower, but can run on any 64bit CPU.

The build is subject to this licence/disclaimer: http://forum.corona-renderer.com/index.php/topic,19.0.html

Installation guide: http://forum.corona-renderer.com/index.php/topic,2.msg2.html#msg2

You can quickly configure the renderer in a scene for production setup using the "Production defaults" button.

Hi,
I'm working on Corona non-stop now, there should be another alpha build soon (as soon as i fix some bugs). The list of changes (mostly new features) is about one page long ;)

[Max] Resolved Bugs / Re: Corona - 3dsmax crash
« on: 2012-01-22, 00:25:35 »
I've made an experimental legacy build - install the latest intel redistributable (you will never need older) and try corona dlls from this archive: http://temp.keymaster.cz/miranda/nightly.zip with acceleration structure other than Embree.

Hi,
Can you send me the scene (with exactly these settings that cause it) to keymaster at keymaster.cz?

It looks like some minor issue, just some stray INF/NaN
