[Max] Feature Requests / Slate / Edit Bitmap
« on: 2020-05-16, 21:40:16 »
Hello :)

Would it be possible to make Corona Bitmap compatible with Edit Bitmap feature available with a right-click on a standard 3dsmax bitmap, please ?
I mean, in Slate Preferences, we can define our Bitmap Editor Path, so that when we right-click on a bitmap node in Slate's view, than hit Edit Bitmap, it directly launches our favorite bitmap edition app (PS, Affinity Photo or whatever). I was recently lost not seeing this Edit Bitmap option anymore, before realizing I was simply right-clicking on a Corona Bitmap, and not on a 3dsmax standard bitmap ...

Thanks in advance,


[Max] I need help! / 3dsmax Substance plugin & Corona 5
« on: 2020-03-28, 12:39:58 »

With 3dsmax 2020.3, I've recently noticed the Substance plugin (v2.3.1) returned an error about Renderer Compatibility, not sure if it's worth bothering or not. If I go in Substance menu -> Substance Settings -> Render Compatibility "Open Dialog", I get a window warning that "The Substance plugin has detected an incompatible renderer ...". Any idea about why this appears and what are the consequences if any ?

Thanks in advance,


[Max] Feature Requests / Corona Camera - Object Visibility
« on: 2020-03-07, 14:05:30 »

Regularly, I find the name of this functionality pretty confusing. While Object Visibility makes objects totally non-renderable, sometimes it would be very practical to only make them invisible to camera, but keeping them visible to reflection/refraction, and keeping their shadow casting as well. Do you guys think it could be possible to add an option allowing to choose ? Object(s) in this Exclude List could be either totally non-renderable or simply not visible to camera ?

Thanks in advance,


[Max] Feature Requests / CProxy - scale
« on: 2020-02-07, 12:31:27 »
I'm sorry if this has already been discussed, but I can't find a clear answer about that. Would there be possible to add a Scale parameter in Corona Proxy, like VRay Proxy proposes ? It would very very practical ...

Thank you,


[Max] Feature Requests / VFB - region activated
« on: 2018-07-26, 16:59:51 »

A little but annoying thing in VFB region rendering that would be great to solve. Let's say you work on a scene, using region rendering to check things here and there. Then you save the scene, close 3dsmax, and reopen the scene later, open the VFB, region rendering is greyed out ... no way to know if it's activated or not. So you have to run rendering to discover region rendering is actually on, which can often be annoying to say the least. Please guys, would it be possible to either:

- make region rendering controls available when VFB is run for the first time in a scene, so that we can set it off before rendering if needed
- or display a warning message like "Region rendering was left activated, do you want to keep it on ? with Yes button (-> it stays on) and No button (-> it's set off)

What do you think ?

Thank you.

[Max] Feature Requests / New Corona toolbar improvement
« on: 2018-06-06, 11:12:10 »
Hello :)

While the new in-house toolbar is globally very sweet, would it be possible to enhance the light creation part ? I mean, instead of changing the light type afterwards (plane, disk ...), would it be possible to choose directly what type we want to create ? for example, keeping the mouse button clicked would provide a "dropdown" buttons list, thus allowing to choose the light type ... that would be very practical.
For example, you can already use such a behavior with several buttons in 3dsmax: Transform Coordinate Centers (Pivot Point center, Selection Center, System Coordinate Center) , Snaps Toggle (3d, 2.5d, 2d), various tools "under" the Align tool,  various tools "under" the Array tool ...


Being an heavy user of proxies (CG for retail ...), I was missing such a thing for a long time, I didn't want a lister because of the nature of the scenes we work on. So I used the VRay Proxy Tool made by David Mackenzie, and reworked it to make it Corona-compliant. I just removed the undo feature I found useless. However, for some reason the progress bar seems a bit capricious, not sure why ... no matter for now, it doesn't prevent the script from working correctly.

Let's hope you'll find it as useful as I do for daily work !

[Max] Resolved Bugs / Corona AO and Light Material
« on: 2018-04-12, 16:26:49 »

I'm not sure if it's a bug or if it works "as designed", so I'd rather report it. I've just noticed that AO doesn't work correctly when used in CoronaLightMtl, as long as Emit Light or Occlude other Lights options are disabled .... bug or feature ? :P
3dsmax2018.4, Corona v1.7.4

Thank you.

Hello :)

Regular bug I'm facing: IPR seems to be stuck as long as Material/Map Navigator is open (Compact Mat Editor). It will continue updating/refining the scene correctly ONLY after the Material/Map Navigator has been closed. Please check this video capture:



I'm facing a weird thing with a very simple scene I'm starting to work on. Nothing fancy here, just the beginning of the project, walls and windows modeling ... but IPR is most of time not working ! IPR keeps on running, nothing appears, VFB full black. Sometimes I get something, but very looooooooooong to appear and/or to refresh.

Next step is to merge the modeled stuff in a new scene ...

Scene made on 3dsmax 2018.4, Corona v1.7.3.

Thank you.

[Max] General Discussion / Corona maxscript stuff
« on: 2018-03-20, 16:15:27 »
Hello :)

Is there any plan to develop the wiki dedicated to Corona maxscript parameters I mean, it would be great to have everything here: lights, camera, proxies ... or do I miss something ? I know everyone can use showProperties function to display the mxs parameters when needed, but still. I can help if needed ;)

Thank you.

[Max] Feature Requests / DR - expanding rendernodes list
« on: 2018-03-15, 09:00:03 »

So far, rendernodes list is limited to 6 machines ... not very convenient when you have to deal with more. Would it please be possible to make the list expandable ?

Thank you,


[Max] Bug Reporting / Complex Fresnel plugin crashing
« on: 2018-03-14, 14:40:08 »

Did anyone manage to use Complex Fresnel in 3dsmax 2018.3, using Corona v1.7.3 ? no matter what I do, I get 3dsmax crashing any time I try to add Complex Fresnel to my material ... with latest Complex Fresnel version (1.0.7, 3dsmax 2018 compatible apparently ...).

Thank you.
