Just to add to the 'mapping should look identical years later', something interesting happened to me recently.
I rendered some initial images for a client. Quite a few materials used noise maps for different material properties. Then, my son wanted to install minecraft on my workstation, I hesitated but finally agreed - I knew I was asking for trouble and I got what I deserved.
The next time I rendered the same images - exactly the same file - all noises had a different look, like their seed has changed. ALL of them.
It wasn't too critical since it wasn't a final. But whatever caused it, must have been caused by installing other software on the machine, Max and Corona were not touched in any way.
Max noise is horrible and uses rand() feature
rand() is horrible by design and should not be used
Old Microsoft C++ implementations were horrible and it is not entirely out of question that the installer installed over the redistributables with another version that had different implementation of rand()

Hi,

Unfortunately there is no way to convert from CoronaPhysicalMtl to CoronaLegacyMtl.

Regarding the colorEdge plugin not working, from my quick tests it seems like this never worked with Corona. I will log this and send it on to our dev team.

Thanks,

Rowan

I never tried color edge plugin, but you can get the same, or even more complex result with the standard tools of 3ds Max, namely face mapping and gradient ramp.
I'm not Corona Team member. Everything i say, is my personal opinion only.

Since the 3dMax noise map is bad. Should we be expecting a Corona Noise Map in V8?

There's already plenty of noise map implementations in 3ds max, siger noise (free), osl noise in recent max versions, to name a few. I think it would be better if we let Corona team to concentrate their attention on things that are missing.

Hey Devs,

Can i please make a relatively simple request if it isnt possible already?  So when creating proxies using built in script, when there is existing proxy files, it asks only to overrite - is it possible to add a function to 'use existing' from within that folder? 
If not can this somehow be added?  would be super helpful

Hey,

Could you please provide us some more info about your idea? :)

Thank you in advance,
Kris
