Any ideas on this one?

So, here's a screen grab of it actually happening.
Can anyone shed any light on how I can stop this? It's happening maybe 20 times a day and I've really got to be on guard for it or it causes me massive amounts of delay...

Well, from doing a bit of research I've found that naming each material properly massively reduces the occurrence of this happening. Might help you?
The problem with this current job is there were 10 things using slight variants of the same thing so I copied and pasted it into each of them BUT because there is a clear acrylic block on top of it I couldn't see on the preview that it'd wiped my materials and just sent them all to render.
Came back later and they're all wrong. I'd have checked in the VFB but it's not something that should happen so it caught off off-guard.

Sorry it's taken so long to get back to you. Here's an example of what happens.
I've tried copying this item several times and every time I paste it into my next document the mapping for the ingredients just gets replaced by a plain yellow the same as used elsewhere.
Happens every single time and is now costing me LOTS of time every day. It's beginning to make this program unusable. I can't show more because of NDA's but you should be able to see what's happening...

If you perhaps give me a direct email I can send you the actual file but I can't put it onto a public forum...

I've had a try to create the situation but can't. This is part of the problem. It tends to happen and it's something that makes no sense so when I'm checking my renders I don't tend to notice. Then I'll get the client saying "why's that logo red?" or something and it's because I pasted it in from another brief and it had the same name "Physical" or whatever.

Next time it happens I'll try to remember to collect the files and send them. Can I put wetransfer links on this forum?

Hi. I'll see if I have time to do this in a bit. Will send you over a file. :)

Thanks, just clicked that box on the boolean worked!
This wasn't my model by the way, I was adapting it to use Corona materials then had to carry out some amends.
I'll try and remember that in future! Thanks. :)

Surely there's nothing wrong with a lathe?

Hello. Well, I did think this but I've tried it with a lathe - the the same effect...!

It does have about 2mm thickness indeed.
I'll have a look at the shader and see what adjustments need to be made. Thought 'glass' would generally work on anything made from glass!

hello. on this issue, I have some bell jars. when I place the bell jar over the item the refraction is CRAZY. It looks like the whole thing is full of water or something. I've attached a screenshot and a rudimentary file. Can someone help? You'll have to drop an HRDI into the scene to light it perhaps.... (mine's too big).

[C4D] I need help! / Translucency on Mult-Pass Masks
« on: 2024-04-25, 12:00:59 »
Hi. I have a quick query.
A lot of the things I do are retail concepts. A lot of these feature a clear acrylic case/tank/box to stop theft. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.
Sometimes (more often than not) the client would like to see the display on a completely white page.
So, if I do this and set a muti-pass mask it'll do a solid block alpha channel of the whole unit. Whatever was behind the clear acrylic tank/case in the original render will be shown.
Is there a way of creating a more 'in depth' mask that captures the translucency of the material so I can overlay the visual on to any background?
See below for an image of the results I'm getting at the moment - branding and product blurred out because of NDA's etc...

A workaround I can do at the moment is put a white box right behind the boxes but it's not ideal!

Thanks @ Beanz
I assume this will work fine.
Thanks again :)

Here's the scene.... I've left out the HDRI as it's too large.

Thanks in advance.
