[Max] Feature Requests / Vray Enmesh compatibility
« on: 2022-07-25, 16:54:55 »
Hi there,
It's been a long time that i did not post some crazy requests here.

I've just played a bit with Vray's Enmesh modifyer : incredible !
Of course, as it is a modifyer, i've tested it using Corona renderer, not rendered.

So, please, make Corona compatible with it, please please please !


[Max] Bug Reporting / DRserver won't work anymore
« on: 2022-02-17, 12:22:10 »
Hello guys,

Since this morning (yesterday i had a windows update), DRserver is having a strange behavior :
Once started, nothing happends, 3dsmax (2022) is not started, and if i click the green up arrow to start it manually, i get an error in the log (see attached):

2022-02-17 12:16:14   Corona not found in C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2022\plugins, make sure Corona is properly installed.
2022-02-17 12:16:14   DR Server closed

Of course the CoronaMax2022.dlr and CoronaMaxUtils2022.dlt are in the right folder, plus i've removed and reinstalled it, just in case...

Any idea ?
PS : also, it responds to the ping when main PC is searching LAN

[Max] Bug Reporting / DRserver messing-up with ram
« on: 2022-02-09, 13:26:33 »
Hello there,

I have a strange thing with DRserver (Corona 7.1, 3dsmax 2022, windows 10)

It says ram used 89.1Gb / 63.69 Gb, but the task manager says other things...

Please see screenshots :

[Max] I need help! / DRserver sends 45 passes instant !
« on: 2021-12-23, 11:33:33 »
Hello there,

I guess i should find a way to flush the full DR files on my second PC, here is the story :
- I have 2 exact same PCs : 5950X, 64gb ram.
- I send a render with 35 passes on both (using DR)
- The main PC renders 5-6 passes while the second loads the scene, parse and so on.
- as soon as the 2nd PC starts rendering, the main says "collecting data from slaves..."
- and at final render it is still grainy, saying 54/35 passes, with 45 from slave.

Of course the slave did not render that many passes
The render reflects more 5-6 passes than 35.

Any idea ?
I've flushed the "C:\Users\claud\AppData\Local\CoronaRenderer\DrData" folder, just in case.
Any temporary folder / files elsewhere to flush ?

Please help ;-)

Hi there,

I wish i could use a Corona standalone software that would act like KeyShot : import objects, and have full IR, corona mat library, and material editor.
And - why not dream large - a simple animation module like Keyshot's one.

My 2 cents.

[Max] Bug Reporting / UV randomizer no longer works ?
« on: 2021-11-09, 20:29:32 »
Hello guys,
Today i've used the Corona UVrandomizer for the first time since release 7.1.
With 6.x it always worked like a charm, and now, same scene, it no longer works (as instance mode), see picture.

Any idea ?

[Max] Bug Reporting / Baking to Texture bg issue
« on: 2021-02-23, 14:16:53 »
I'm using Bake To texture for my AO/shadows maps (for some 3DrealTime stuff), and i often get some dark "contours" around the UVunwrap parts.
Even with larger padding.

Solution could be to set the background to white, so i've set it, both in BakeToTexture and Corona Params.
But the BG remains black.

See attached.

I will use alpha, but i can also get some AA contours.

Can you guys let BakeToTexture set Bg to chosen color ?

Best regards.

[Max] I need help! / Translucent plastic shader
« on: 2020-12-10, 18:17:57 »
Can someone help me to get this translucent plastic shader, please ?
I feel i would need translucent / sss stuff, but i can't figure how to reach it.
Please see picture.

[Max] I need help! / Underwater God rays ?
« on: 2020-11-21, 13:02:06 »
Hello there, does anyone know how to reach this effects : God rays underwater.

See example.

{Edit] : it seams that volume shader god-rays does not work with caustics, as the ocean plane sends caustics, but blocks the light for volume shader.

[Max] Bug Reporting / win 7 vs win 10 ?
« on: 2020-02-01, 20:29:41 »
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 ?

[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.
