corona-8-3dsmax-daily-2021-07-28.exe
Note: all changes in this build will be released in a v7 hotfix, so this is more of a hotfix preview than actual v8 daily build.

* General
* Fixed occasional crash when light intersects with other geometry
* Fixed crashes caused by Wind Binding modifier
* Fixed display/input/output gamma values not being properly rounded to 2 decimal places when being written to max log file
* Added proper error message when trying to use a UHD cache file generated from an older Corona version (note that this scenario is not supported and a new UHD file will be generated)
* CoronaDisplacementMod - fixed the “displacement quality” and “subdivision quality” radio buttons being treated as a single group (i.e. only one of the 4 could be selected at any given time)
* CoronaPhysicalMtl - Fixed incorrect TAB order in advanced rollout
* Warning message about VRayHDRI/VRayBitmap now correctly uses either name according to the currently installed version of V-Ray (the VRayHDRI map has been renamed to VRayBitmap in latest V-Ray version)
* CoronaNormal - fixed the text “Add gamma to input” text being clipped a bit from the right
* CoronaSky - fixed the model tooltip incorrectly stating that the PRG Clear Sky model does not support turbidity
* CoronaRoundEdges  - Added tooltip for the samples parameter

Note: all changes in this build will be released in a v7 hotfix, so this is more of a hotfix preview than actual v8 daily build.

* New
* PhysicalMtl - added tail parameter, controlling the strength of reflection outside of the reflection peak


* The image comparison below shows the difference between using Roughness and using Tail to adjust reflections - visually, with Roughness, the entire reflection becomes blurred, while with Tail there is less blurring of the overall reflections while highlights remain affected.
https://corona-renderer.com/comparer/uq3FfO
For this example, the Roughness was set to 0.16 in that example (with a Tail of 0), and a Tail of 0.87 in that example (with Roughness 0). For comparison, here is the render with neither Roughness nor Tail used:

* Added new randomization mode to UVW randomizer and Multimap - polygons. These separate the mesh into individual polygons based on visible edges.
* Note that this changes seed of UVW randomizer/Multimap mesh element mode.
* CoronaBitmap has new option to control environment map rotation (and potential dome mapping origin) with any picked scene node
* CoronaBitmap now supports loading .tx files
* Note that this we currently ignore the mipmap levels stored in the .tx file
* EDIT Also note that it is currently not displayed in the file open dialog as a supported type, this is due to us using the 3ds Max file open dialog.
Currently you are unable to load .tx files through this dialog due to a 3ds Max limitation, you will need to drag and drop the image into an already created CBitmap and it will load the file.
* Added right click menu to Triplanar map's node picker with "Clear" and "Select in Scene" options
* Added new button to batch load maps into SelectTex
* Changes
* Changed the default order of Corona Scatter rollouts to be more intuitive.
* Object lists in Corona Scatter show full name of each object in a tooltip, if the name is too long to fit into the list.
* Unified names of newly created Corona objects to Corona[space]ObjectName
* Fixes
* Fixed constant IR restarts in V-Ray GPU caused by Corona Scatter scattering objects with animated modifiers.
* Fixed crash when loading some uncommon HDR files
