We identified why the black material library previews are happening. As for the freeze bugs, please shoot some minidumps our way ;)

Hi, do you use any scripted maps? It crashes in maxscript when preparing some map for rendering, unfortunately I dont know which one

Reading the code for C4D integration right now ;)

Of course no one wants to be forced to upgrade all the time - but you can't realistically expect software that old to be a viable option in 2022.
We are not even forcing anyone to upgrade - older versions of Corona run perfectly fine with R14+. We just cannot provide new features to people who opt in to stay with 10-8 year old host application.

If you want to use R16, you can use any Corona version up to v8. If you want to use the features introduced after v8, you need to update your host application. Same way as you cannot combine 2010 motherboard with 2020 CPU, for example. If the last usable version of your host application is 8 years old, the problem is really somewhere else than Corona cutting support for it...


Who else remembers the first photogrammetry tools in 2005?

i guess the developers are on vacation :)
yes ;)

As covid is off everyones mind, people are now using their built up vacation days from lockdown era ;)

If you don't mind I'd like to ask an under-the-hood question...

not at all ;)

In instances like this, where Corona is adopting a v-ray feature (enmesh is another example, improved sky is another but from Corona->Vray) is the code re-written entirely? Or is it somehow copied across?

Could be 0 - 100% depending on feature.

Enmesh/Pattern was developed pretty much independently because of what the feature is - the major part of the feature is the infrastructure connecting it to the renderer. The pattern itself is relatively simple render-time instancing, but connecting it with everything else is tricky. No code reuse was possible here. Also the Corona version was finished at the same time as VRay, not after.

In case of clouds the major part of the feature was easy to adopt, so using VRay code here helped massively.

I guess what I'm asking is; will the procedural clouds in Corona be different than the v-ray procedural clouds? Do you guys make an effort to copy the features + usage completely or do you try to distinguish it from the vray features?

When adopting, the second team has the benefit of seeing what worked out and what did not, and adjusting it accordingly. Like with any other product - the second iteration is usually more polished.
Independent of this, there are always adjustments based on the individual product philosphies. In case of Corona, we ask how we can make it streamlined and easy to use. V-Ray team usually has to add more knobs for some specific edge case workflows requested

We will add random rotation, no problem there.
We will go over the rest of the requests after SIGGRAPH and vacation season is over, at the end of the month.
We are doing clouds until then ;)

The entire point of pattern is that it bends along the way - if you dont want that, you should use 1D scatter with regular pattern here ;)

Leave it, it looks cool ;)

We just need bug reports in one place

We are now testing a possible fix for this issue

this is a hack we do to list the material first in list of Corona materials. We return this from ClassName, but return normal name from InternalName. The latter should be used in maxscript. Is just "CoronaPhysicalMtl" working as expected when you try to use it? (despite max returning the "hacked" version)

I will add them personally immediately if people finally stop saying "Merging with Chaos was a mistake" after 5 years :D

Are you kidding?
Yes, I was kidding. I assume you are also kidding when you call Cosmos, Scatter, and all the other features we added in v8 "nothing".

We are working in improving the converter, some changes were already merged and will appear in daily builds soon
