Hi Forum!

Hope you are all well. I have a question on animation. I just tried doing a single frame test lowering the GI/AA balance to 8 and Light Samples Multiplier to 1 and it has shaved render time from 11min to 6min. It looks acceptable, hardly much in it. How does this affect a animation? Will it flicker/patchy if I send it to a render farm? Any advice would be much appreciated :-) Thanks John

Hi Forum! Having a play with Chaos Scatter and like it a lot. I am testing it on a job I've just finished were I used mograph object to scatter trees. With mograph I can make all the trees face upwards or straight. I cant figure out how it's done with scatter. See the attached screen grab, looks weird with trees facing in weird directions.  How do i do this? Any help welcome :-) Thanks, John

Hi Forum!

Might be a dumb question but were have the LUTs gone? Had a render done and looks cold. Not applying LUT I used in previous build. Thanks, John. Apart from that, great stable release BTW, I'm happy :-)

[C4D] I need help! / New Curvature Shader Tutorial...

Hi Team Corona!

Are you going to make one of you legendary tuts on the new Curvature Shader? Struggeling to understand how to use it :-) John

Hi Forum & Happy New Year All!

I have a venue which was only meant to be rendered as stills and it is very detailed. Now the client wants a animation done. It is dark with lots of lights. Is there a good way to set up Corona to render faster but with less detail to get the times per frames down? Is it best to reduce polys on all objects? They don't have a big budget for the project and I don't have a lot of experience rendering out a complex fly-through. Any advice would be such a help :-) Thank John

Hi Team Corona & Forum,

Thank you to the team for giving us such a fantastic render engine and look forward to what's to come in 2022, good work all and thank you for such a brilliant forum full of knowledge. Have a good Xmas & NYE :-) John.

Hi Forum!

I have a question. Until now every time I have created textures I have always just gone to the texture and loaded in my bitmap standard way (I do use PSDs). Last night I was reading about Corona Bitmap which I realize gives you much more control. Should I use this for all my texture imports in the future? Does it render faster as well? My gut feeling is I should. Love to hear your feedback on this :-) John

Hi Team Corona & Forum! Is Corona stable on Windows 11 or is it best to wait for a while? Many thanks, John :-)

[C4D] General Discussion / Team Render with old iMac 2011...

Hi Corona Forum!

Hope you have all had a good weekend. I have a old iMac 27" i7 with 18GB Ram. I have C4D R23 TR installed on it and tried to install the latest Corona on it but needs OSX 10.14. I's only got 10.13. Can I use another version of Corona on it to be able to use it as a render node? Thanks, John :-)

Hi Forum!

Hope you are all well. I am trying to understand how I use the new Physical textures. I use Pixplant 5 to extract all my info which outputs base colour, metalness, roughness, displacement, normal and ao. As there is no specular anymore, do I use the metalness for specular? Should I use metalness for wood? Is there a good C4D Corona tutorial on PBR workflow? Many thanks and have a good weekend all :-) John

Hi Team Corona,

Just wanted to let you know I find the last version super stable (on my setup anyway). Well done! :-)

Hi Forum,

Lately V7 RC2 has started freezing for arounf 10seconds every 5min. Not crashing. Have gone back to V6 for now. John

Hi Forum and Happy Weeeekend All!

I have only lately started using the NVIDIA GPU Denoiser and it seems faster than the standard. Is it ok to use this on Render Farms or should I stick with the normal Corona denoiser? Many Thanks and have a good weekend :-) John

[C4D] Bug Reporting / NVIDIA AI Denoiser Error...

Hi Support,

Since yesterday I have been getting a error message every time I do a interactive render. Not when I do a final render. No panic but annoying having it pop up all the time. Is there a easy way to fix this? Many thanks, John :-)

Hi Forum!

Is there a tutorial on how to use the Volume Grid for C4D? This is something I need to learn. Any links would be greatly appreciate :-) Thanks!
