[Max] General Discussion / UVW randomizer optomisation
« on: 2022-07-05, 11:13:48 »
I'm a big fan of the node UVW randomizer but I have to admit it's a pain to use it on multi slots shader as I have to first duplicate the UVWR node for all of the maps (to keep the seed etc), then if change is needed I have to correct it in every node again...

I think the Vray UVWR node got recently updated to be plugged in the entrance slot of a Vraybitmap so you can change all of the connected maps in one time.

So in Corona, do I do it wrong ? Is there a turn-around to avoid this repetitive task as I do ?

Thanks !


[Max] Bug Reporting / Material Library makes 3ds crash
« on: 2021-04-23, 11:28:32 »
Hello there,
i'm facing crashes of 3dsmax when I use the material library...

Often, just applying a shader to selected objects, it crashes for no reason....
It happens often, on various scene, in the example below the object is a simple box...

It's boring as I need of course to save my scene each time I will use the library, but also bc there is no visible reason for this to crash for me....

Just wanted to report this...

See you

Hey thanks !
Well that's what I do, and the main computer still "see" the node in green in the VFB, but the render never starts... That's why I though it's linked...

[Max] I need help! / Change DR IP
« on: 2021-02-18, 16:00:10 »
Hello !
i'm using DR on my workstation, but DRserver keep using my wifi dongle IP instead of the LAN port that has the correct IP (and a differnt sub network), so Max can't find the node anymore... Any way to avoid this ? to change the Drserver option to a specific IP ?

Here is the DR log (I want to use the :

[Max] I need help! / Re: Cast shadows doesnt work properly

Hello, thanks to help !
Not working... i'm desperate !
Is this a bug to report ??

[Max] I need help! / Cast shadows doesnt work properly
« on: 2020-12-17, 12:39:17 »
I'm facing weird problem, I try to render cast shadows from invisible trees through a windows.

I cant get the shadows if Visible to refraction/reflection isn't activated...

See fig01 : all enabled > the floor shadows are visible
See fig02 : not visible to camera > also
See fig03 : not visible to camera & ref/refraction... > no more.

There is glass on both windows and door, except in the middle (see purple tree visible fig04).

What happens ? Why cant I get only the floor shadows and no visibility of the trees at all.

Thanks !


Wow, nice support keep asking ;)

This is it : you render an image and let it finish, you set a render region, you start rendering within that region, and the parts outside of the region become noisy
The render end, then I do some mofification in the scene, draw a region, then render : the region become noisy that's normal, but also so parts of the image.

Yes they stay noisy.

Clean VFB is not ticked, sure.

No : Everything is working as expected here - I have Clear VFB disabled; I render to completion (final render); I draw a region; I start another final render; the previously rendered parts stay as final, and the region gets noisy and finally clears up. : in my case, the previously rendered parts become noisy at some place, not the whole frame.

I use both, but here it was multiple ones.

Hi there, sorry I didnt receive any notification of your replies.

TomG : 3ds 2020.3 Crn 6, doing a new scene right now, cant share the whole pic but you can see new noise on noise-free part on the top, free noise part staying free in middle, then region being rendered below.

Maru : yes this it, so its normal ? So I dont understand how it's useful to use region render if the rest gets noisy...

Hi there !
I dont understand, when I render Regions after a full render, even if "don't clean VFB between renders" is ticked, noise spread in the whole render while rendering the regions.
Why do this happen ?

Thanks !

Solved ! :)

After trying almost all your list of tips, I couldnt open the file properly on the slave... and discovered the pb !
I knew this was a stupid noob problem ^^
As the slave is not connected to internet, I had to update Max version to 2020.3 manually, and forgot to install first 2020.1 and .2 ....

Everything rune fine now thanks for the assistance !!



Wow I will try all of this when I'm back, this weekend !

Thanks, keep in touch!

No change....

Not block, but I try with and without to test...
