Just reading this article on proxies. I always had trouble getting them to work, but i see you need to put the texture tags from the original model on to the proxy for it to show materials! A little different to 3ds Max.

However, they mention in the last paragraph that :

"Nevertheless there’s still a big drawback when using corona proxies in cinema 4d being that the visor of Cinema 4D becomes very slow while working with proxies using any display modes of the proxies. We actually don’t know if it’s a Corona performance issue or a problem native of Cinema 4D which is not yet able to handle the proxies. We hope that Corona or Maxon developers work together to solve this inconvenience soon!"

I remember when i used 3ds Max, the huge benefit proxies had on Chunky scenes. I was just wondering if the dev's got to the bottom of this?

for modelling maybe start with a lathe, then shell inwards . split off the internal faces, shell these, split off internal faces again shell these. cap them all. maybe some sort of FFD to warp it. Then apply varying glass shaders to get this affect. Maybe some falloff to get the shading effect. 

Got to agree with this. I brought this up with someone in work and they said it used to work. Got everything duplicating in a project although they're all same mats with same properties. Hopefully they can fix it

Can you save a scene with the issue and we can see if we can replicate it for you?

I always enjoy, the glass is too reflective shout :)

I've recently attended the state of art academy ADX in Venice, very inspiring people and talks going on there. There was a lot of film footage being taken so maybe thats available online for you guys to watch. "D2" is another conference that deals with cgi / archviz. I will see if i can find any and post a link later

Hey there,

You could maybe try Light portals over the openings of your windows in your interior scene.

They help force the computational power to focus on the room the light in the room and less on the whole scene. Remember, there is always noise in real life, so a little doesn't affect the image :).

Or take some out in photoshop with CameraRAW, Details tab/Noise reduction, at the sacrifice of a bit of detail.

Similarly use a little bit of denoise on the image in corona

I use krpano, it is pretty easy to get into and has some nice features for interactivity that you can apply to the code (im no coder :p)

It only works with panoramas though.

Hey there :)

Corona has always been a cpu based render. Buying an rtx isnt worth the buck for offline rendering. You are best spending the money on CPU and RAM. The RTX would play a role in viewport performance of your 3d software but not for actual rendering really.

Corona works best with a good cpu, with plenty of cores and Ram 64-128 preferable. I would say get that before a gpu. Hope this helps, any questions feel free to ask

I have this same problem, I think they are currently working to get corona proxies working. Just been having to use layers to turn off the big assets from view!

It's in their future improvements section on their trello page, but if someone has this working let us know :)

Spot on Cinemike, Kudos to you, that is exactly what i am looking for! (y) thanks for your help on that!

[C4D] I need help! / Brick Material Shader
« on: 2019-09-22, 14:01:32 »
Hi there,

I'm looking for some advice, tips on a way to produce a shader that replicates the following Reference. It is a brick that has one chiseled face. It's for a personal animation project i am looking to do, which will involve one shot of the sunlight rotating round the eliptical facade to show off this chiseled detail. Photograph by NAARO - Bishop Edward King Chapel

Therefore i need the bricks to be each unique.

i was hoping to use a selection tag to displace one face and use the variation effect to create variation in the UVW noise so that each displaced face is unique. However, it produced an undesirable result pulling the displaced face away from the rest of the brick, which makes sense.

Second try was splitting the displaced face away from the rest of the model and closing the hole. I think moved this face inside the brick so that the displacement would look as if it came from the brick. However it just seems a little messy, i feel like there could be a better way to create this.

Thanks in advance. I've attached a basic scene, with what i have so far. Feel free to play with it.

I think you just want to use a layer map in the diffuse slot, You diffuse texture then add a Corona AO on top set to multiply and adjust the percentage (kinda what you would do with the AO pass when compositing in photoshop but directly in the material).

With the grass you would need to do this to every grass material type.
And this script may help for that  =)

Spot on Sprayer, i will have to have a dl of that

Frood's Method but at a Material level if you need it visually. With the grass you would need to do this to every grass material type.
