[Max] I need help! / Re: .exr Elements saving black
« on: Yesterday at 13:46:27 »
Glad it is working, and you are welcome! Render Elements in Max do sometimes just get outright confused and need to be rebuilt from scratch unfortunately, often this occurs with some network path being saved to and Max can start to throw some error about that, maybe something similar happened here - at least there were just a couple of Elements to recreate in this case so it proves not too annoying, whew!

For me, following the steps of disable saving the render, rendering in the VFB, then using the Save option from the VFB and choosing OpenEXR, the Normal file is in fact not saving properly (I am getting the CMasking_ID.RGB result showing in the RGB result where the Beauty should be), but the results from the Broken Max file works properly.

Deleting and re-adding the two masks to the NormalFile version then saves properly, so something seems corrupted in the initial set up (even if it is apparently working for you) - what happens if you delete and re-add the passes before adding the ZDepth? Was the normal file created in an earlier version of Corona? Does saving from the VFB rather than using the Save File option make a difference for you?

(as a note also, I am loading the EXR into Photoshop using the free Exr-IO plugin since Photoshop on its own is very bad at handling EXR files)

Hi! What is a CNasjubg_Mask ? I couldn't find a translation for that, and neither does it show up when I load the scene (I just get the other two, no other render element).

PS - you haven't enabled "Render only masks" by chance? In the Scene tab of the Render Settings dialog.

Do they start working again if the z-depth pass is deleted after being added? Can you upload the scene (or simplified version of it) in working form before the z-depth is added? Thanks!

Actually, some other questions - do the passes show as black in VFB before saving to EXR? And if the scene can't be shared, can you list which render elements are being rendered? Thanks again :)

C4D version, OS, Corona version, please.

Having things at a real world scale is usually beneficial for Corona, so may want to try making this larger too. Anyway, here's the scene after those small mods, plus a render to show how small this little item is :)

To get it working I deleted the UVW tag, added a new one set to Cylindrical projection (per object, world system), and got what I would think are expected results. This object is also REALLY tiny, not sure if that is intentional (it is dwarfed by a default cube when added in to the scene, with the default cube being, I don't know, thousands of times larger).

EDIT Oh and I also reduced the bump value down from the 1000% too.

Ah didn't see it there in the first post, ty! Something to do with the way the object is created and mapped - deleting the UVW Tag stops the weird shading.

Which still doesn't answer what it should look like - the Fusion shader is being used to map something onto the surface, but from your one image we can't tell what, nor how that should look mapped across the surface. Maybe send the material itself over so we can see what is going in to the Fusion shader.

Looks like a cache issue, I'd try the other cache (ie try 4K if this is UHD, or try UHD if this is 4K), try precalculating the cache (, or just move to path tracing if none of the above works.

It's only in Max for now, as we had to implement the whole of Scatter for the first time in C4D there were a couple of features that did not make it across just yet while we focused on getting the core features up and running.

Sure, leave the thread open - if you get a set of steps that always results in a problem (render, save to CXR from VFB, open in CIE, edit the conf, save the edited conf, close CIE, open CIE, load saved conf, note that settings are not loaded, or something like that) then let us know and we can take a look. TY for the latest update, and glad all has started working as expected in this case (for now, at least :) ).

Our current plans are on - if something is not on there, it's time to head to the Feature Requests section at and make a post there (well, actually to head there, search if there is already a post, +1 it if there is, start a new post if there is not ;) ).

Can you send in the CXR in question?, Submit a Request allows you to attach any files (and you can include a link to this forum post in the request).
