Hi houska. Hmm... but I did.
Just to be sure I've installed it again but I get the same error.

I'm using Team render client on my slave pc. Is there a special way I need to install corona?


[C4D] General Discussion / Team render
« on: 2019-05-16, 13:03:42 »

I am trying out the Team render for the first time. I've managed to setup the machines and they seem to communicate between each other.
I've also installed the Corona Licensing server and I've entered the pass and username but somehow I still get an error on the slave computer saying "Several plugins used in this project are missing. Corona"

Can someone point me in the right direction?
thank you

@niedzviad: check the AutoSave option in Corona Preferences ... It works fine, you just need to pick the files from this folder manually: C:\Users\Usernamme\AppData\Roaming\MAXON\Cinema 4D \corona\autosave

I think it's on the ToDo list for the upcoming versions to have the option in the Save dialog box, if I'm not mistaken?

Sorry, for not replying for so long.
That's exactly what I was referring to @nkilar.
I agree, this kind of attention to materials is needed only for closeups imo. In wider archviz shots I wouldn't go as deep.
What I found very useful though is using fresnel maps for both, IOR and Glosiness slots. With GGX you get pretty close to results from the posted tutorial from Grant Warwick. But the material stays very simple to modify as well. Which I think is essential.

I'm not acquainted with "tail falloff" in 3dsmax. But I use frensel in a filter which I can control with a curve. It works great.

I think there was once a topic regarding the GGX materials in Corona. (
Do we still need to merge multiple glossiness maps in one material, to achieve high realism in metal materials?
Or does Corona do it automatically and there is no use of using that workflow?

I think Corona does it, but I wanted to be completely sure.

Hi there,

I've tried to render the final render over night. The render automatically stopped after 2-3hours. There was no limit set (time, neither passes).
Cinema didn't crash. It just stopped rendering.

Somebody else having same issues?

I've done some test regarding the "Corona Bitmap" texture slot.
And I haven't noticed any drastic time improvements.
I've also tried saving files in TIF and PNG. I've reduced image sizes.
Nothing really helps, I still get 15second of "Preparing scene data" which is IMO too long.
When I delete all the textures it's 1 second or so.

Thanks guys!

Thank you both!
I guess there is an issue with the size of the texture. I have a texture of about 130MB in size. When I delete this texture I get way faster prep phase.
Are you guys usually using JPG or TIFF for textures maps? Does it influence speed?

thank you

Now I've tried to delete all the materials from the scene and the prep time fell to about 1s.
Did anybody else had similar issues?

But If I simply try to override it with a white material it still doesn't work. I have to phisicaly delete each and every material from my scene.
Any idea how to find the error?

Thank you

[C4D] Resolved Bugs / Very long "Preparing scene data"
« on: 2018-02-28, 18:54:45 »

I've recently started to notice very long "Preparing scene data" phase when I hit render.
Even if the scene is not huge. I can't figure out what's the deal.

I'm attaching model of the house I'm working on. I've completely cleaned the scene of all objects that might make the prep phase longer, very little improvement.
I get 20s of prep time on my six core machine, 64GB ram.

Can someone else try and report if he gets long times as well?
I'm using last version of corona.

Thanks for your help,

[Max] I need help! / Denoising in animation - interier
« on: 2018-02-12, 21:13:54 »

I'm about to render a 100s animation of interior spaces.
I'm getting some noise in certain parts of the images and I'm thinking of using denoising. But should I?
I don't have much experience with animation in Corona and I'm worried it might be some flickering?

Any advice would be apreciated!
