I have switched to Blender and really like it. But there are two things I miss in C4D that are so big for me that I am now looking to turn back. They are Team Render and Corona Render.

So I have a couple of things that I want to discuss and see if there is a solution to them and I could not think of a better place to do that than here.

# UV
* Mark seam and unwrap (like in blender)
* Single out selected model (industry standard, 'shift + i' in Blender)

# Asset browser
Save Corona materials for later use
Save objects with applied corona materials

# Scattering solution that is in class with Scatter 5.

Thanks in advance,


[C4D] I need help! / Team render
« on: 2022-02-18, 15:33:15 »

I am trying out Corona and I want to test Team Render, but I am experiencing problems. Do I need a "real" license for this to work?


I want to do the move from my current Razer Blade with eGPU GTX 3090 to an Apple Macbook Pro M1 Max, I know that there will be a drop in performance. I just want to know how big it will be, and if I can live with it.

I will use render farm (wich one is simplest, press and send?) for final render, I did that with Octane too.  One day maby I will buy a render slave with like Threadripper or something, but the market is crazy right now. Will Corona work with a slave with another type of CPU?

Has there been any new tests between these two beasts, GTX 3080/3090 and M1 Pro/Max?

I am very greatfull for any real world answwers I can get, I have had enough of problems of late with computers and rendering.

[C4D] General Discussion / Render IR over team render
« on: 2021-09-29, 11:39:47 »

Is it possible to get Team Render power to the Render IR functionality? As I work on a laptop I would love to be able to use my nodes for this.

Thanks :)

[C4D] General Discussion / Great artists to follow

I know I know, this is a common discussion.. "I want to do that but I need that software to do that". But then again, I am inspired by great artist choices in SW, so if you guys have any great artist like Johannes Lindqvist ( ) to share, please share it here. And please make em use C4D / Corona.

Hardware / Help with new solution
« on: 2021-09-17, 15:28:54 »
Hi, I want to get som help on a setup I am thinking of. I work as a 3D artist and web developer, and want to be able to work from home also.

I am used to work on Apple computers, so this PC world is a bit confusing to me.

Is this a good option?

Razer Blade Advanced (2021) - 15,6" | i7 | 64 GB DDR4 | 2TB M.2 | RTX 3080 | QHD
Windows 10 Pro Eng 64 bit

Render Node
Motherboard ASRock TRX40 CREATOR
CPU AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X
CPU Cooling Fractal Design Celsius S24 240mm
Chassis Fractal Design Meshify 2 Compact Svart Solid
HDD 1TB Samsung 860 QVO m.2
RAM Kingston Fury 64GB (2x32GB)
GPU ASUS GeForce GT 1030 2GB
PSU Corsair HX 750W Platinum
Windows 10 Pro Eng 64 bit

Do I get "live" feedback in the PictureViewer when rendering on TeamRender in Cinema 4D?

When I work from home I could use VPN to access the Render Node. And is there a good solution for adding render farm also, as easy as TeamRender, or shoudl I buy two nodes?

[C4D] General Discussion / Render node
« on: 2021-09-17, 13:45:50 »
Hi, I am about to buy a new IT solution in regards of laptop and nodes for rendering. And am thinking about working on a laptop and build a couple of nodes.
How important is the GPU in the nodes? Are they used for denoise?


One of my TR Clients craches all the time, I can't find the problem. I have now even testet to clean the HDD to clear space, but that did not work.

Please help, I am on a deadline and I need this Node (the most powerful one..).

[C4D] I need help! / Shadow pass
« on: 2020-09-17, 08:57:19 »

I must do something wrong, because my "shadow pass" does not look right.
Do I need to blend it in PS / Comp or something?

And yes, rounded edges don't work ether. ;)

[C4D] I need help! / Mask a wall and keep light and shadows
« on: 2020-09-16, 14:04:44 »

I want to do a "mockup" for a wall, to be able to try different wallpapers. Used to do this in PS with multiple layers. But can this be done in Corona it will save time an be better too I think.

I think like this, make a "mask" of a wall. Tell it to be transparent in render but keep shadows, reflections and light.

Is this possible?

[C4D] General Discussion / C4D / Corona on Linux Render Node
« on: 2020-09-13, 18:30:47 »

Is there a Team Render Client for C4D / Corona that work under Linux out there? Or do I need to run Windows on my nodes at home?

[C4D] General Discussion / Render out transparent background
« on: 2018-07-03, 22:05:17 »
This is probably a stupid question, but I am new to Cinema 4D and Corona, so here we go :)

How do I render out a scene with HDRI-Light material on the Environment, with a transparent render result (no BG showing up in render)? I call it alpha.
