The scenario:

Client needs multiple spaces (between 20 x 20 to 80 x 80) modelled, lit, and populated with misc objects within a couple of hours. Not really any time to spend arranging realistic area lights or fixtures. What do you do for lighting?

Currently I'm slapping a single giant area light at ceiling height but am wondering if there's a slightly less crap route.

So far we have Value, Target Object, Whole Scene, and Camera Clipping as options for ZDepth values.

It'd be great if you could have "camera focal distance" that auto updates as you switch between cameras.

What are Coronites/Coroneers/whatever the term is for Corona users doing in place of vRay's two sided material?

I've read the other topics on the matter but one seemed more geared towards vegetation and the other was fairly generic.

This is the typical example of a two sided curtain:

Perhaps there is a simpler method that provides the same result, specifically with lamp shades. I am all ears! Cheers

PS attached are the scene files of what I'm currently attempting to apply it to.

Has anyone come up with some ideal settings for different scenarios? The base settings are great for final renders but as much of my work involves copious amounts of "add this table, switch this material, and get it back in five minutes for review" I was wondering if there is a speedier arrangement for quick drafts. Such a thing obviously would not have to be completely accurate, but semi presentable.

I did RTFM regarding this section but some examples would help me understand the theory better.


Is there a setting somewhere that deals with this? Attached is an example. Most obviously the very white or black parts of the image are transparent, but also it appears bounced light is affected - the backs of the red chairs for example. Have I missed something?

Steps to reproduce:

Create a tile shader in the diffuse slot
Duplicate tile shader into bump slot and switch to black/white tiles and grout

The result is double lines outside of the grout as attached. How come?
