In short they are adding hours to projects, in the night type of hours.
Please, make the converter simple as the amount of times I have convertered eveything to PM , and then had to go back through all the materials and adjust them.
Seriously..........................pain in the neck amoungst other body parts.

Hardware / RTX 3090 - Where to buy?
« on: 2023-01-06, 22:39:07 »
I am based in Ireland , and would like to purchase a RTX 3090.
The prices vary so much it's difficult to know where to buy new.

Where do people buy their cards from.
Nvidia are always out of stock.
Thank you


Good morning.
I have a very large Revit Model and I want to animate a walkthrough.
I have been given the path and the revit models are very big.
There will be a building then all the manufacturing elements also to go in it, there will be multiple parts to include.

So ,My questions are .
1 .Are there any script or plugins out there people use to clean up a large Revit file?
2. Should I use corona or Vray and Expport as a mesh to Vantage and Animate it that way?

Advise would be grateful.

Thank you


[Max] Feature Requests / Collaberation tool Corona
« on: 2022-11-08, 17:50:25 »
I have used the collabertion tool in Vray 6, and the clients love it.
Can we please have it in Corona asap, it excellent.

Also. I have asked a few times but a port to Vantage for Corona, also, the vray converter of Corona basic materials does not work, so a more robust tool set is required.

Thank you

General CG Discussion / Vantage and Corona
« on: 2022-06-09, 13:35:37 »
A Question
Has anybody ported a high poly Corona scene in to Vantage and rendered out.
Is there vantage planned for Corona..sorry to Admin for this question, but it would be extremely useful.
I am like many have both vray and corona , I bet a lot do, and work 90% of time in Corona.
But Looking the shiney side of Vanatge, I would like to use it.

Grass is always greener........... in other software...............

« on: 2022-04-22, 13:17:57 »
Good morning.
Can I ask is Max 2023 and Corona 8 compatible?
I have heard there may be issues , and the max is not allowing Corona v8 in when opened.
A college had this issue.
Is this true.
Any reason for this to be happening?
Before I go ahead and upgrade max

Thank you

I have been using WD 12 tb duo drives for a few years but they always die.
What would people recommend for a back up system that does not cost the earth.
It is for a small office system 1-2 people, just backup projects on a weekly basis.
Thank you

« on: 2021-12-14, 22:50:02 »
Just got to watch the Animated series Arcane on Netflix.
The animation is stunning,  the over all camera work, colours, everything is just superb.
Well worth a look.

[Max] I need help! / Circle on glass reflection in animation
« on: 2021-10-07, 14:01:06 »
I did a draft animation of an extension to house, and a circle appears in the reflection as it pans along and follows with the camera.
Any idea what it is, and how to get rid of it, please.
I presume it's a camera settings.
The model is simple and lit with a HDRI.
Latest Corona Commercial version not a daily build.
Still attached.
Thank you


Just spent 6 hours trying to fix a large model, and its now 1am.
New release is crashing with a revit imported, and it worked fine on the last release, .
Now I have stepped back to 6 hotfix 2 and all the textures are gone, and so is the deadline.
Seriously ...... that's not on, compatibility is important.
To have to retexture a large model this late in a project is just not on................
Pi**ed off with Corona now.
