[Max] Bug Reporting / Re: win 7 vs win 10 ?
« on: 2020-03-17, 17:20:46 »
Just my 2 cents:

- Can you show the "Performance" tab of the task manager with "CPU" activated from the Win10 node while running the benchmark?

- And another one for your list: disable FTH, see

Good Luck

here are screenshot from tasks during rendering...
Strange that it is 0% while it is actually rendering (see rays/s)

If any knows how to make win10 minimalist so it can reach win7 speed... please share.
Already stopped the "search" indexation service.

[Max] Bug Reporting / win 7 vs win 10 ?

Not really a bug, but...

With the end of win7 support, i'm thinking about upgrading my renderfarm from win7 to win10.

I've done so on one node for testing :
Upgrade, not fresh install : as those servers are oldies and scecifics, i don't dare a fresh install, i may not find drivezrs, so upgrading is safer.

As you can see, DR render seams faster on win7 than on win10... though win10 uses less ram...
Coincidence ?
did somebody made some tests ?


I always forget, and max crashes, and i have to redo whatever was not saved / autosaved...

Self solved... I'll never know why and what...
Maybe a 2dsmax-oriented error...

Sorry for disturb.

Wow, the Oren-nayar looks so much better!

Sorry, i don't get it... In my opinion / habits, Lambertian looks better here...

Can you explain why i'm wrong ?

[Max] Bug Reporting / DR not working anymore...
« on: 2020-01-23, 19:14:30 »

Did not change things, maybeWindows were updated (Win10 on main PC, win7 on renderNodes).

Dr does not work anymore, see pictures.

Any idea ?

[Max] Feature Requests / using only DR nodes.
« on: 2020-01-23, 14:33:20 »
Quite often i need to render large images for a customer, so i switch on my little rfarm and use the DR render.
But while it renders i'm a bit stuck waiting.
I'd like to tell Corona to render only on DR slaves, not on the host PC, so i can switch to another project / scene to go on modeling / shading / rendering locally.
What if you could put a checkbox : "Use local rendering" - ON by default, but when OFF only DR nodes are busy and your main PC fully available.

It was asked once, and one of you guys told me that it would be possible - nor easy - to implement.


[Max] Feature Requests / Import picture in History VFB
« on: 2020-01-09, 11:06:35 »

It would be usefull to be able to open a picture in the VFB/History, so we could use the very usefull A/B comparison wipe with an old picture, not just rendered.

Possible ?

This occurs also with Pflow and VertexColorMap, dunno if it is the same core issue, but please have a look at :

Same here, so i +1 this topic.

« on: 2019-12-28, 13:23:15 »
Hello Ondra,

I was testing some vertex color stuff for a specialFX with Pflow (see pictures), and it seams that Corona5 is not yet compatible with VertexColorMap.

It renders in scanline, in vRay, but stays black in Corona5.

Attached is the max file, if needed.

Best regards.

Of course i can,
i thin about newbies : as a 3D teacher, i'm very aware of newbies ;-)

That could help, indeed.
