I've seen alot of posts about color difference between Frame buffer and saved images but they are all old and dont give any answers. Are there any news, how can there be this much difference between what i see in buffer and what i save out? How am i supposed to be able to work like this? :D

[Max] General Discussion / DR Issue
« on: 2019-01-15, 17:58:13 »

I am using two slaves for DR, all workstations use Corona 3-hotfix 1 and Max 2017.

For some reason one of the slaves seems to brighten the image once it starts sending passes, any idea why this is? It only occurs on one slave, not the other. 

[Max] I need help! / Displacement edges
« on: 2018-06-08, 14:01:29 »
So, why do i get theese jagged edges along the boards when i use displacement. I am not refering to the box being broken, but that the pattern itself gets jagged along the boards.

I've used other engines where this does not occure so i am wondering if there is something that can be done or i am doing wrong?

The displacment is just white with a black line, so no artifacts or such in the map itself.


[Max] Resolved Feature Requests / Corona Camera
« on: 2018-02-22, 10:27:30 »

About the using the corona camera to override global settings. Is there a way to make the Corona camera interactive in the frame buffer? So that i can adjust the tone mapping for that specific camera live without affecting global settings?


[Max] General Discussion / About more CPU's
« on: 2017-12-09, 17:03:02 »

I am currently on 2x Xeon 2650V4 and thinking about buying a few render nodes. I am not that in to hardware so my question is, if i go from 2 to 4 CPU's, can i expect speed increase in single renders or will this mostly improve when rendering alot of frames etc? How big speed increase could i expect if any?

When looking at the benchmarks i can see for example that Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2686 v3 @ 2.00GHz (×2) performs better then a setup with x4 of the same CPU's. Seems odd.

So. Simply put, if i want more power on single rendering, should i just get the best CPU's that i can fit in one single computer, or will rendernodes do the trick?

Reason for asking is that i want to get a good workflow in the office :) Thanks

[Max] Bug Reporting / Preparing geometry
« on: 2017-04-27, 16:37:50 »
Preparing geometry sometimes take 3 minutes to complete, sometimes it take 3 seconds even though nothing in the scene has changed. Why is this? How can i lower the amount of time that the render is locked to this prerender thingy?

[Scatter] I need help! / Scatter breaks group?
« on: 2015-12-29, 21:39:41 »

I have a question regarding corona scatter, or perhaps this is true for any scattering software?

Anyway. I have a archmodel tree that is grouped into a single model. Scattering this breaks it apart so my question is, how do i handle the tree model to make it scatter as an object?

[Max] I need help! / Animation setup
« on: 2015-07-03, 21:22:46 »

I was wondering if i could get some general tips on my animation setup.

Im creating an animation in 1280x720, now, should i render directly to movie format or do i render frame by frame and create the movie afterwards, is there a prefered or correct workflow here? Also, how do i keep the movie size down so 60 seconds dont become like 600 mb without loosing image quality?

I did a test render and saved directly to .avi, the outputfile however came out as 720x480, 6 seconds, 23 mb. The image became compressed somehow?

Sorry for any misspelling.

Anyone wanna share? :)

[Max] I need help! / Wood materials
« on: 2015-02-20, 21:03:47 »
Hi, so i've been looking around for some nice wood textures to use on kitchen drawers and such but it's quite hard to find anything good out there that does not look bad becuase of seams or that it simply keeps reapeating itself all over the kitchen.

So, my question is, does anyone know any good site for this kind of textures? Either free or to buy, as long as they are good to work with?

Hardware / Hardware questions for new puter
« on: 2015-02-12, 19:26:18 »
So, im buying a new computer and thought that perhaps someone on this forum got some experience with the issues im currently having.

I work as an Architect/3D-artist and use the software like Revit/Archicad and 3D-studio. For the last months i also been using Corona for all my work and will continue to do so once 1.0 comes out, i really love it.

Anyway. The setup im looking at has the following specs.

Intel Core i7-5960X
MSI GeForce GTX 750 1GB
Crucial DDR4 Ballistix Sport 32GB

Thing is, im not that super in to puters and the hardware inthis setup orgins from a "Gaming machine". However, reading around i get the feeling it would suit my needs and work well with Corona to. Anyone got any input, tips?

Work in Progress/Tests / Testrender Bedroom
« on: 2015-02-06, 14:05:53 »

Been trying out Corona and really like it alot. This is a testrender from a scene that was setup pretty quick. However, how do i get it to "pop" more? Is it all in the postproduction? And by "pop" i mean bring more realim to it. Any tips on what to think of cocerning materials, lights etc? Any kind of help is welcome.
