General CG Discussion / Re: 3DS max general help
« on: 2018-11-18, 15:42:07 »
This guy Arrimus 3D is acclaimed and has an easy way of explaining and has lots and lots of videos with modeling and practical examples on how to obtain mostly everything in 3ds max.

Yep, love this guy. He's actually very great to learn from. Thanks for recommendation anyway, glad I've been looking in the right place so far...

General CG Discussion / 3DS max general help
« on: 2018-11-18, 11:55:19 »
Hi All,

So I'm basically a complete newbie when it comes to 3DS Max. I'm previously a Rhino user, but Corona sucked me in a few months ago...

Coming from Rhino, modelling in max is quite difficult for me. Every operation seems backwards, inside out and completely counter-intuitive. I google a lot, but rarely find decent answers to my queries... and almost always end up on https://knowledge.autodesk.com or https://forums.autodesk.com... both of which I think are awful. Funnily enough, these sites reflect the unfriendly UI of max soo so perfectly...

Does anyone know of a better forum for 3DS max general help and queries??

OR

Is it cool to ever discuss max questions here on the corona forum boards?

Thanks!

Wait... Corona doesn't have fisheye? That seems crazy!?

Just FYI; Since using RC5 (or maybe even RC4), any previously reported issues with DR have seemed to be solved.

Thanks for the hard work as usual guys. Looking forward to the full release! (....and then testing for Corona 4 :D)

Beautiful as always, Anna F!

And yep, that horse! :|

Now that Corona is beginning to utilize GPU, is it worth considering having full screen previews in VFB?

I remember Grant Warwick complaining about this a lot with Vray, and never until recently understood his frustration. But now I see it as a vital possible feature...

Love these, particularly the 'model' shot (2nd image). Nice, interesting and different.

"Convert to Max geometry" for Cscatter doesn't seem to work... I've never used it previously, but currently on RC3 I click the button and absolutely nothing happens...

Any hints? Or is this a possible bug?

Edit: A restart seemed to fix this.....

Concerning the DR problem - I've managed to fix it (for now, at least!)

It seems that upon opening 3DSmax I had pop-up error messages (one was from a missing dll file for fstorm). I didn't know of these errors as I rarely ever open 3ds on my slave PC.

Once I fixed the error messages and 3ds max opens without any problems, DR started working again fine....

when I send the scene to backburber the render does not find the slaves, the same scene with Corona2 does not present the problem

Just a hint when having (networking) problems with current RCs: be aware of the fact that DrServer.exe has moved to a subdirectory during v3 dailies. This would propably mean that firewall settings and/or startup options (depending on who is how running drserver.exe) have to be adjusted accordingly.

It also may happen that there is still an old drserver.exe in %programfiles%\Corona (so NOT in a subdirectory called "DR Server") from some older installation which still gets started instead of the current one.

So it is generally a good idea to make sure that there is no executable except "RemoveCoronaForMax.exe" in %programfiles%\Corona after installing the lastest v3 RC.


Good Luck

Thanks, but none of this helped.... getting pretty frustrating thb

Hi,

I'm currently using RC1, and I've had DR issues with previous dailies in the past few months... which have never been resolved. I had to revert back to V2 for it to work, but now I've upgraded to RC1 DR does not work.

I've attached 3 logs. Hopefully someone can help me figure out what the hell is going on...

Thanks!

EDIT Before anyone asks: Yes, the same corona and max versions are installed on both PC's and both are logged into the same FairSaS account.

Could you please describe what issues are you currently having? I can definitely see some problems just by a quick look in the log files, but we would like to be sure that we're focusing on the right issues and not chasing some ghosts.

Well, I can't get my slave PC to render on DR. It's set-up exactly as I've always had it. The only change is that I have Corona 3 RC1 installed, rather than V2 Official.

It won't render any file/scene - I've tested very simple scenes with no luck.

Not sure what else to tell you. All I know is that the slave says it cannot connect to 3DSmax, then retries and continually fails...

aaouviz, I've had a similar error once because Backburner was not installed on the slave.

hmm, thanks.

I've had zeo experience with backburner in the past (I'm fairly new to 3ds max).

However, backburner is installed on both PCs....
