      • Support for AMD cards will be added in the future
  • Chaos scatter additions
    • Added controls for altitude distribution limitation

  • Fixed:

    • Corona help system now also works for Render settings, Multipass and all shaders (previously some of these did not open correct web)
    • Fixed issue in lister where enabling/disabling displacement for all materials with displacement caused update of material preview even for materials without displacement
    • Fixed random scattered object instance rendererd at zero position when open spline was used as distribution object in Chaos Scatter
    • Fixed problem with decals not visible to Mask pass in Multi-pass
    • Fixed problem with clouds being sometimes visible in viewport preview of Corona Sky even when set to simple color
    • Fixed issue with incorrectly detected topology changes in deformation motion blur leading to render artifacts
    • Fixed freeze in Chaos Scatter caused by scattering instances with zero size when collision avoidance is enabled

Changes in Corona 11 for Cinema 4D (Daily Build) (https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1AMdDmYkftsDZelYVFHRTF84oVgEhs9ny):

  • Added:
    • MappingRandomizer and Multi shader now support randomization based on tiles of Tile shader
    • Altitude filtering in Chaos Scatter can now be better adjusted using curve
    • Added "on" column in Lister for Corona Proxy
    • Added new bump/normal shader filtering options to Physical material. It has the following modes:
      • 'None' - Normal/bump shaders are not filtered; this gives the most accurate look, however it can lead to significantly increased noise/flickering.
      • 'Linear' - Normal/bump shaders are filtered linearly as any other shader. This may lead to changes in appearance when using different zoom or resolution.
      • 'Roughness modulation' - default. The same as Linear, however, when Corona bitmap is used for bump and/or as normal shader, the material roughness is modified in order to preserve appearance as much as possible when changing zoom/resolution.
  • Fixed:
    • Fixed crash caused by instancing objects with Corona Pattern modifier
    • Fixed problem with Corona Bitmap and Corona Proxy not correctly loading paths from C4D Asset browser
    • Fixed crash when using Corona Bitmap with UDIM pattern containing all 10 tiles in a row
    • Fixed issue with Hair materials imported from Corona material library not rendering in masks
    • IR no longer restarts when white balance on active camera changes
    • Fixed issue where Camera Physical Size did not work with Render selected (pixel mask)
    • AO, RoundedEdges, Curvature shaders now work with MappingRandomizer
