[Max] General Discussion / Re: Corona Sun darker than sky
« on: 2021-11-05, 19:32:32 »
Hi. Looking at your render, I can't see any shadows nor direct light, so it sure seems wrong.
Is the Sun and Sky intensity set to 1 and "ON"?
Do you have more than one Sun in the scene?
Can you show your setup and settings?

Yes. From the help file:
"The first item in the Modifier List is a toggle called Use Pivot Points. This toggle is available only when multiple objects are selected."

Here's a link to the page:

Hope it helps

No, you are right. Square random gamma/hue patches on ground material doesn't make much sence. Unless we get a way to add noise to the randomization edges - like the OSL randomization-map.


no, I don't need it in this example. But with other things like f.ex. ground materials that would be neet :)

Okay - figured it out. But this will not work with the UVW-Randomnizer on top.

Personally I would love a solution where one could patch and randomnize sveral different bitmaps on one surface.


Hi romullus. Looks great. How is this set up?

@Maru - This will only work on instances, primitives or mesh elements. NOT on a surface.

I believe OP is asking for a slight color-variance on every repeated bitmap/tile, based on the map-size/UV-size rather than geometry. Would be usefull to give more natural variation on f.ex. grass, dirt and fabric.

I think there is an OSL map dooing this - but I'm not sure.

Hi. Have you tried this:
I know it's not exactly like your description, but I think it could make the same end result.

Hope it helps.

Edit: Forget it. It doesn't work :(

Hi. I use the "Round Edge" map as a toon map.

Hope it helps

Hi. There's no problems with 3dsMax standard camera  Try lowering the EV value.

Hope it helps

Hi. Just to give my point of view.

I do think that this is a serious problem, since there are many cases where one single object containing both glas & fluid is the only usable solution, + many premade models are made this way.

I really hope that this will be seen as "high priority", and will be fixed soon.

Best regards

Hi. Just tested this on max2020 and Corona7. Seems like there's a loose connection :) Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't.

So try changing the values back and forth and see if it suddenly works.

Hope it helps

Thanks. Not great news, but at least I now know what not to do :)

Best regards

Hi. I'm testing the new Sky, and having a problem. When using the new volume effect together with VDB-skies, I'm getting a purple box around the skies.

Is this a known issue, and are there any workarounds?

Uploaded two images showing the problem.

Hi. You need to apply an UVW-modifier to the object. In this case set it to "Box" and "Real World Scale" and rotate and move the UVW-gizmo till it fits.

Hope it helps
