CMPP - is reliable but somewhat slow interface.
Project Manager - has tons of cool ass features for model/texture/material managing. Has sweet little things like the possibility to host the material database on your qnap sql server. It did tho always feel a bit unstable.
Connecter - last time I checked it didn't have the possibility to manage materials. If it could, this could be the winner.
Vizpark Material Manager - Does someone use it? Any experience?

The rest you mention is not directly connected to your 3d software and is used for texture creation, not material management.

Amazing. Only the cutout trees don't look good and break the immersion.

I've got a boring MSI SLI x399 and old GeiL 4x16Gb Dragon 2666 Ram and it runs almost alright(51s Corona Benchmark).
With your 2133Mhz Ram, don't you get lots of VFB Window flickering and freezes? Anyway it's definitely the ram.

Remember to put them into the primary slots and enable the xmp profile.

Reduce the field of view in your panorama viewer settings.

Depends on complexity you are looking for. offers a nice simple app for the oculus go. It feeds on KrPano and Pano2Vr Tours but has a very limited support of their features.
Best way imo is to create your own app in Unreal/Unity.

Those are nasty.. happen to appear when you use the bg overrides in corona setup. ArionFx can fix those, if quick and dirty is acceptable.

Hey Agent :- )

- I found single available (right now) source of MSI MEG on CyberPort. Apparently it was in stock...but after I paid, it still says ready to ship in 24 hour...for the whole week. No idea when I will get it, but it's not in stock anywhere else in Europe.

- I went through the QVL list for days. Holy crap is that a shitty QVL list. 500 Euro workstation board...and they keep testing 8GB modules in 8/16/32 configurations ??? There are very few 16GB modules in 64GB/128GB configurations and most of them are not even brands you can buy in Europe. And of course, I am not gonna pay 1000 Euro for some idiotic Trident-Z G-Skill which isn't on the QVL in 16GB modules anyway despite being Threadripper exclusive. In the end I found Corsair Vengeance at 3000 Mhz (so 2933 manually running) that is not any sort of magical Samsung B-Die or whatever is hyped to work best, but it was 680 Euro on, and that is price I can sadly live with.
I seriously hope it will run well at 2933 and correct timings.

The QVL is nightmare. Even if I find something you can actually buy in Europe on it (Corsair, Crucial, Adata & G.Skill), find in on some e-shop or amazon/ebay, it will be some newer revision with single letter changed in name and of course completely different maker. The same Corsair kit can be made by Samsung in February, tested on QVL, but then discountinued in April because newer version made by Hynix entered market. AMD needs to sort this. Nobody has time for this.

- I am extremely skeptical of Enermax unit as well. This is 4000+ Euro workstation, I am not gonna let rusty pump leak all over it and destroy it during project and then haggle with warranty (which is never guaranteed). It is the only powerful cooler on the market though and apparently second revision is on market, but of course you can't buy it anywhere. So maybe in six months ?

- I don't know if I have patience and will to pay for custom loop. EK didn't even design their TR4 CPU block properly, it was pure failure last year and had worse performance than cheapest Air. They had revision afterwards but I still believe it sucks. I didn't check what sort of loop Deba8er was running on that fancy schmancy Epyc dual-loop at Gamescom but obviously there are better CPU block pieces now. Still, that would be another 400 Euro investment and the whole idea of Threadripper is that it is affordable. Paying for overpriced MSI board just because every other board is pure failed design from phases point is enough, but over-paying on everything (Board + memory + custom loop) is bringing the whole idea of this workstation into uncomfortable territory for me. I am not a guy who likes wasting money on frills and custom loop is very much a frill.

- Same about the Thermalight Silver Arrow TR4. Apparently this cooler is on market since June...then where is it ?? You can't buy this crap anywhere. I've seen people pre-ordering it on ebay Japan. This cooler looks like total nonexisting vaporware.
  If it enters the European market, I would buy it since it looks on par with Noctua NH-D15, which Noctu has NO intention of bringing to TR4 because apparently there isn't any market for it and they are too lazy to redesign it allow enough clearance over PCI-E and memory modules on such large socket.

I would not be such an early adopter with all this pain but Veronika really needs workstation right now so I just decided to go with it anyway.

Thanks for the insight. I've send my boss a list for new components (2990wx, msi-399 AND Enermax cooler) literally 5minutes ago. Changed it to Thermalight Silver Arrow TR4.

This happenens to me if I do render over night and turn the monitors of and turn them on again in the morning. This behavior begun when I installed all the service packs for max 2016. It's seems to be a max issue. I just dont turn of the monitors or if I forget, then connect via teamviewer and save the stuff before turning on again. Overall the service packs introduced lots of bugs to me :(
