    • Fixed problem with default render stamp text being used in render stamp pass when render stamp was disabled
    • Improved UI responsiveness when working with large animated Proxy objects or with large amounts of Proxies using the same data
    • Fixed parsing of environment introduced by generator in IR (e.g. C4D physical sky)

Changes in Corona Renderer 5 for Cinema 4D (Hotfix 2) (Download here):

  • Fixed:
    • ZDepth multi-pass Min and Max values in "Target Object" mode now remember the "Use bounding box" option. This option also works correctly now.
    • Keyframed objects' position is now updated in IR when Motion Blur is disabled (a.k.a. It was not possible to move animated camera in IR)
