[C4D] Bug Reporting / Chaos Scatter is slow
« on: 2022-11-24, 15:39:58 »
in the viewport with many objects to scatter...
And the worst nightmare is to activate "avoid collisions"

Of course the display is set to none.

In my opinion, it should only scatter on render time and not in the viewport.

[C4D] Feature Requests / Blackbody material for Pyro
« on: 2022-11-10, 12:05:43 »
With the new C4D Pyro, it would be great to have a blackbody material.
Currently we have to export the "pyro simulation" as a VDB and then import it again with the Corona Volume Grid.

Are there any plans on that?

best regards

[C4D] Resolved Bugs / Volume Grid and Render Farms
« on: 2022-08-25, 20:49:04 »
why is the Volume Grid not working as it should?
One of the main problem is the file path handling. Instead of letting the user choose the file path you create it without the option to change it.
Once the files are loaded  via the "select files" button, there is no way of altering the path and most important, corona is altering the path randomly.
The results are "funny" pathes like (\\Fileserver\project\.\vol\folder). This does not make any sense in no way and will NERVER do.
Either use relative or absolute pathes and/or let the user decide.

I´m really wondering why this is the case since the first version and has not changed in the meantime. There a lot of complaints, but nobody cares...

best regards

[C4D] I need help! / Corona 8 on renderfarm not possible?
« on: 2022-04-21, 10:01:15 »
Hi all,

we try to upgrade to Corona8, but there is a problem with the new licensing server. We have a farm with 50 rendernodes running the C4D commandline renderer.
The solution that the CHAOS support tells us is to MANUALLY install Corona and the license server on each and every rendernode, then again manually set every single license server to point to a master license server in the network.
Is this really the official solution for customers with more than a few nodes? How does big farms like rebus handling this?
With Corona7 everything worked just fine. One central license server and one place in the network where the plugin is loaded from.
Or is Corona8 just not intended to be used by larger farms?

thanks for your help!

[C4D] Bug Reporting / Corona Volume Grid
« on: 2021-09-14, 15:30:06 »

I stumbled over a nasty bug when working with vdbs.
the Corona Volume Grid object changes the file path to the .VDB when saving the project using "save with assets".
This way it is almost impossible to render vdbs on a render farm.
It would be better if you did not change the file path in any means. Just leave it and let the user take care of relative or absolute paths.
The second problem is, that the emission, absorbtion, scattering, settings are reset to default, when no vdb is found. Unfortunately this is always the case when opening the saved scene, because of the previous path changes.

It would be great if you could have a look.

[C4D] Bug Reporting / V5 Render regions
« on: 2019-12-09, 18:36:36 »

When I select regions in the Frame Buffer, these are secretly saved in the file.
When sending the scene to the render farm, these regions remain active and only they are rendered.
Sometimes it is not enough to delete them, by clicking the red [X] oder selecting "Remove All"

I would consider this as a major bug, because it secretly saves information in the file completely hidden from the user and it may cost a lot of time and money.

If this is a intentionally desired function, it must be possible to switch it off using a check box.

when opening "old" scenes  in the final version, the light color is always white, no matter what the original was like.

would be good if you could fix it.

[C4D] General Discussion / Helpdesk is responding! :)
« on: 2019-01-15, 18:03:04 »
I have a serious issue with your license server. I reported it yesterday evening and hoped to get a reply within this business day.
I´m not able to render on all machines, witch is really an issue, so I have to consider whether I should go back to the beta version with the farm, so that I can at least render.
I have a little time slot for the transition, that´s why I decided to buy the upgrade. I knew there might be problems, but it's not good if the time i have to troubleshoot is wasted by waiting.

So please, I need some response.
regards Andreas

[C4D] Bug Reporting / Deformation Motion Blur not working
« on: 2019-01-08, 14:21:00 »
deformation blur is not working in the final release.
Is this a bug or is this supposed to never work in C4D.
As corona4C4D has the same pricetag as max, it should offer more or less the same features, right?

[C4D] Resolved Bugs / Alembic object motion blur
« on: 2018-10-24, 12:13:24 »
alembic files are not rendered with object motion blur.
Would be great if this works in one of the next versions.

A test scene is uploaded.

Just a Cube and Sky with LightMat and hdr crashes.

I cleaned old versions before.

[C4D] Resolved Bugs / MotionBlur and Xrefs
« on: 2017-11-21, 17:02:08 »

please have a look at the scene:

Activating MB results in a crash and/or in a wrong texture on the Xref.
The material shown is the red "unsupported texture"

Without MB the Xref Material is loaded and rendered as usual.
I couldn't figure out whether it´s the Xref, the material, geometry or an unlucky combination of all.
I´m sure you will find it :)
