[Max] Feature Requests / Re: Rounded Camera Clipping
« on: 2023-05-25, 15:25:08 »
I don't think you'd need to hassle with all the objects separately, AFAIK slicer cuts through everything, unless you choose to exclude certain objects from it. Rayswitcher setup also shouldn't be big challenge and most certainly easier to work than with likely limited and/or complicated tool in camera settings.  That's just my 2 cents, i'm not trying to convince anybody that Slicer is the only possible solution to the problem.

Ok, but slicer makes the light going through and no presence in reflexions...

Tested it, it could work with only walls, but as you see in the screenshot, the windows are not seen in reflections.

I would have to manage one slicer per object/mtl, with include/exclude lists...

So, really more easy and usefiull a shaped camera cliping.

I think Corona Slicer should handle situations like this, isn't?

Not really, as i don't need the objects to be cuted-out, as light may differ.
Of course i could use a combination between SlicerMtl and Rayswitch to have objects that are participating to th GI, but not visibles. But a feature to manager directly the camera clipping could be very usefull.


[EDIT] : also, if i have plenty of objects, i have to manage all of them with Slicer / Rayswitch... (for ex. walls, windows, handle, floor, ceiling, baseboard...)

Hello there,

It would be very usefull to have a "rounded" camera clipping, or even better, a "freeform / spline-shaped" camera clipping.

In Archviz, we always want some nice camera views, but very often we have to play with Tilt&Shift, clipping and position to find the unique millimeter that let us get the picture we need :
more clipping value : the objects are couted-out; less clipping and the walls/floor/ceiling are photo-bombing into the picture.

I'd love to get some rarc-rounded camera clipping, so i can put my camera behind a corner, bu get the scene fully rendered.

And even better, the carema clipping following a spline, a bit like in architectural cuts that are not always straits, but are following some polylines.

Please see attached pictures.

Just tested it and it's true - Corona will always report the VDB as 'empty' regardless of the settings and tweaks I'm using in Embergen.
I've posted a question on their discord, let's see if I get a response. It's really strange as it worked for all the alpha/beta builds of Embergen, no idea why it fails now.

Maybe something with the new possibility to custom name channels.
I've tested without changing any name, but maybe they put by default wrong ones (caps or something) ?


We have logged this as a feature request. We will let you know if there are any updates on this issue.

(Internal ID=1084579743)

Many thanks.

I have used VDBs from Embergen without problems.
I've not tried yet with v1.0 (VDBs from Embergen beta definitely worked) but from what I've read they have introduced the possibility to use arbitrary names for VDB channels in v1.0. Maybe that's the problem: channels aren't named 'correctly' and Corona expects them to follow a certain naming convention?
For the records, i let the names as they were by default.

Can you provide one of the problematic vdb files? Can always be done privately via ticket

Also, which version of Corona and which version of Max?
Done !

[Max] Bug Reporting / CoronaVolumeGrid does not want my VDBs
« on: 2023-03-24, 17:25:10 »
I'm trying Embergen, it exports VDB sequences.
VrayVolumeGrid open them no problem, and Corona can render that.

BUT, CoronaVolumeGrid keeps telling that the files are empty, no data and does not render.
Any idea about that ? how to setup export / import ?
Vray is not installed on all my PCs, and i would need to DRrender, so i need CoronaVolumeGrid to work with Embergen's VDBs.

Thank you for help.

I believe this has been fixed in Corona 9 Hotfix 1
You're right, thank you !

[Max] Resolved Bugs / Aces output still come back
« on: 2022-11-29, 09:18:04 »
Hello guys,
ACES output is probably good, when you use it from start to finish, but here i have a scene for a customer that was setted without ACES, and with highlight compression 1.2.
Each time i open the scene, i have to reset highlight compression and uncheck ACES.
It comes back each time...

Can you fix this ?

Best regards.

it is just not possible in the 3dsmax node editor API

It's a putty. I'll keep on using controlers so...

Too bad, for once i thought i had an idea that would be interesting, and that was not just claim for GPU acceleration ;-)

oh yes, I would love this, but you can guess what is the issue... ;)

Hi Ondra, sorry i don't get it, as i'm not aware of all stories from inside.
I hope the "merge" still let you code some good ideas.


[Edit] : Oh, i got it now : Autodesk won't let you code multiple outputs, or something like that ?

Why this complicated setup? Corona already has properly implemented master control in CoronaColorCorrect texmap, they just need to add this to the rest of the maps, like triplanar and UVW randomizer.

Indeed, but separated nodes would help us to connect to anything
