Corona obscura! :O

This is amazing! I remember doing some tests like casting caustics of an object through a little lens in Brazil and it worked, but never something so complex! Great to see. I wonder how Vray's path tracing would handle such scene...

Mental ray style bump mapping: apply bump map to reflection only or to diffuse shading only. Good for coated materials.

btw last night I had a dream about Corona, seriously :O

So round corners is probably executed as a bump map, like in mentalray?

This is what happens when I change spherical light's radius to some higher values. Number in file name is light and sphere radius in cm. Light and sphere radius in max has the same value. Changing it to higher values makes it even more insane - light becomes tiny or invisible.

On those 2 screens with viewport you can clearly see something is wrong, radius was 600cm.

i should´nt forget to have a life outside of corona...:)


in my opinion you would intergate corona with archicad :"P

Looks much better now! But floor looks wet. :)

And it's standard 3ds max 2013 or some "design" version?

plus it would never appeal to anyone except for very small group of CG artists

It's called elite.

But seriously, I think it's best to keep alpha/beta versions of such software quiet, only available for interested users, without any aggressive campaign. If more users would hear about Corona, they would probably remember it as a very buggy piece of software (as it is now, though still pretty amazing as for alpha stage) and wouldn't be eager to come back to it in the future. Let's spend some more time fixing essential stuff and then come in with procedural exploding pony-shaped strange attractors and volumetric motion blurred caustics.

In this case I think it's best to use very thin (not single faced) geometry with 1-sided glass material.

In my opinion: leather is too shiny and too bumpy and metal is too smooth and too reflective.

Are you using 64bit version?

Very fake looking, I'd like to see this in some different scene, preferably interior. Maybe it's useful but you can usually add good looking chromatic aberration in post.

Would be nice to let ponies run and run and run without falling down!
