hi,
i normally work on stills but going to do an interior animation,
I have got my scene looking the way i want it using LightMix,
Q: i'm rendering out 200 frames, do i need to save each Render Element (of which there are about 8) for each frame? so I would be looking at a folder of stills containing 1600 images (8 images per frame x 200frames) and the only ones i need for compositing are the lightmix ones
hope this makes sense
thanks

[Max] General Discussion / new PC build , licence question
« on: 2021-06-28, 17:18:09 »
Hi,
I have a new build running and want to use Corona on it, I have 1 license FairSaas that is currently running on my old pc,
I have it for 4+ yrs now so can't remember the original install license activation method :-(
can i run and activate corona on my new build as long as I don't start up the old PC  and activate Corona on it, i.e. Is the FairSaas license effectively a floating license?????
I am currently using is in 30 day demo mode on new PC.
Thanks
Tom

hi all
I'm under pressure to get a building faced done, and am having probs with the cladding,
what would you advice to do to get this cladding down, i..e model or use texture maps (tiles)
i'd would rather use maps/procedural as it is not a close up shot and also the time saved in modelling all these panels, can Bercon tile do anything like this?
any advise would be much appreciated,
Thanks
Tom

try locking the viewport ?

DOH!
please ignore ,
sorted - changed the 'Look at' controller for sun

howdy,
in the relentless pursuit to get some decent exterior renders I am trying to wire a Corona Bitmap (HDR) to Corona sun
I'm following the 2nd video on this page (https://coronarenderer.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/5000516732) but my corona sun does not give the rotation option shown in video at 1:42, i have transform and Roll angle as shown in attached image but I cant proceed after that :-(
is it something with my max as to why the settings are different ? (Max 2018)
any assistance is greatly appreciated,
Tom

correct, it appears to have stopped. :-)

I installed V6 (hotfix1) which i think removes all previous revisions but was still happening, but since a complete windows reboot it seems to have stopped,
bit weird  but more of an annoyance as it didn't appear to affect renders

10
Yeah that's what i initially thought but its happening on all files when corona is the renderer :-/
I don't think its affecting my renders,

Hi,

cool,
@romullus thanks , unfortunately for this job i don't have time to go at substance designer/painter as i would need to learn and get up to speed on it,
@GeorgeK Great and thanks any chance i can get it in max 2018 format - i reckon i could get a decent result with this,

hi,
I need to create this type of material (oxblood) for a sofa similar to attached,
is a corona AO material the logical way to go about this?
thanks
