Thanks for the nice example Michael. I found the render times increased substantially as the complexity of the layer mask noise shader increased. But I noticed if you bake the texture out you get all the benefits of your method with none of the render time penalties - at least none that I've found so far with my limited testing.

Doing a quick bit of maths on the AMD promo material it sounds like we might be able to expect up to 16,700 in cinebench R20 from the 3970x and 13,500 on the 3960X. I could be getting this completely wrong if they're referring to single core scores but I'm guessing it's multicore. I'm basing this of a score of 8791 for the i9 9980XE. I know the reviews might reveal a different story to the promo material but hopefully I'm in the right ballpark.

I'm going off the percentages on this slide:

Plodding away over here on a 1950x (6670 in cinebench R20) so those numbers above look good.

Only thing I'm a bit unsure on is the discussions I've seen around Corona not fully utilising all that the 2990WX has to offer. Has there been any dev feedback on this?

this is listed as fixed in the latest build from 15/10

1. Create a material with reflection and refraction enabled.
2. Create ray switcher material
3. Add material from 1 to reflection and refraction channels in ray switcher material.
4. Adding material from 1 to directly visible channel also makes incorrect results.

I had the 3 fan Enermax fail on my 1950x and replaced it with the Noctua and it's been good. I'm not overclocking but it's much quieter than the Enermax and keeps temps to around 60 when rendering, depending on the ambient temp.

Yes, I deleted the corona folder out of the R20 plugins folder then unpacked from the installer and copied the new corona folder over to the R20 plugins folder.

When I install it, it tells me in the progress that the current version is already installed and it is being ignored.

+1 for this issue

you need to apply the material to the cube.

I can't Houska as I opted for the 45 day demo - if there's a way to deactivate the demo I'm happy to try?

no, nothing else here, just C4D R19 & R20

Thanks Beanzvision. It's the standalone image editor where I'm getting the error. I've just activated it with the 45 day demo option for now so I can continue using it.

If it helps I'm on Win 10 - anyone else having the same problem?

Everything within C4D works as normal.

Just installed the latest version from Friday and I'm getting a "No active license found on this computer" message.

I’m not in front of. The the PC at the moment but have you tried a layer shader then using a transform from within the layer shader.  Pretty sure this has worked for me in the past

Thanks for the scene Yurii, very kind

A couple of quick questions if you don't mind, how did you generate the tiled flooring?

Second one is something that often bugs me, how are you getting the textures to display in the viewport (before rendering) - all too often I can't get them to display correctly when working on a scene.


Thanks for all your work on improving Corona Nikola, would you mind taking another look at the yellow issue, post #77 mentions it above and it's been mentioned elsewhere. It would be very helpful when trying to tweak materials using the IR to not have to restart the IR all the time when the yellow materials make an appearance.
