I'm flumuxed, probably to long a stint at the screen.
I'm trying to shadowcatch reflection and shadows with a shadowcatcher material, but on the same plane I would like to bounce reflections but not render the object bouncing the reflection. My reflection plane keeps messing with my shadowcatcher.

IE. water backplate jpg compositing in a rendered sphere above the water, shadowcatch reflection of the sphere and shadows on a plane with similar displacement to mimic the surface of water on the backplate jpg, how to get caustic like reflections bouncing up at the sphere without rendering something or interfering with shadowcatcher object.

Apologies if I'm talking gibberish..

hey, heres a few crop shots from a couple of projects

Just downloaded what I thought was 1.1, but installed its 1.01, is this correct?
Also now I'm getting two errors when starting max 2016

DLL coronautils2015 dlt failed to initialize error 127
corona2015.dlr failed to initialize error 127

Edit: I did select clean up previous checkbox on installer

[Max] I need help! / DR opening older version of max
« on: 2015-06-16, 17:08:08 »

Just wondering if anyone else has bumped into this dr problem.
I have upgraded to 2016, set up and old file to re-render in max 2016, but the  render nodes keep launching 2015 and then closing straight away.
I tried uninstalling 2015 to see if it would revert to 2016 but its still trying to open max 2015.
Any ideas how to resolve this, stumped..

Many thanks

Hi guys,

We recently finished this visualization for our client using Corona. This is a refit / Interior design visualization exercise. The space is currently a dining room and the proposed conversion is for a spa, gallery and deck.
This is one of the images from a series we are releasing soon.

Hope you guys like it. We have more coming on our website

[Max] Resolved Bugs / Undo HDRI rotation causes crash
« on: 2015-03-10, 17:11:58 »
Hi, I'm using the latest installed from the website, licensed. So many crashes...
The one I'm able to replicate over and over is CTRL + Z after changing the HDRI rotation (im using the vray loader for better control over ration)

Each time max will crash on undo

Recent renderings to share with you guys.

recently finished study, main hero with some crop shots. cc welcome, thanks for looking.

I'm not sure if this is already possible, I've asked a couple of times in the db thread.
It would make sense to have an option to limit the interactive view to only the safe frames. When using funky aspect ratio's and for camera placement, a safe frames option would be very handy.

[Max] I need help! / Recover from not responding
« on: 2014-12-15, 14:40:16 »
I have a 20 hour render (with 3 nodes) randomly just stop responding on me. all windows frozen, temp on cpu is down, no load going through 0% on cpu, Nodes are still rendering away but master machine is doing nothing.. any suggestions to recover from this? I've left everything open (hanging / grey dimmed screen) in hope that it will come back, similar thing happened the other day when I hit stop render (worry every time when pushing stop render or cancel incase of crashes).. but it did eventually return to me.

Any suggestions on recovery would be great, I can't afford the 3 nodes and 20 hours again.. (frustratingly looked at the machine 10 mins ago and considered stopping but thought na ill just leave it! argh) I have little faith this will return on my, the private working set memory has not changed one digit in the task manager.

Sad times =[

Work in Progress/Tests / Attempting Corona
« on: 2014-12-04, 19:46:43 »
Hi guys,

Inspired by some of the great renders here, I decided to give Corona a try.
This is my first render with the engine, now I'm looking forward to trying 1.0 and make use of the interactive.

Still learning lots, but thought I'd post this test. Any tips welcome & glad to participate here on the forum.


[Max] Resolved Bugs / wxWidgets error
« on: 2014-12-04, 12:36:12 »
Hi guys,

I set a render going a couple of nights back, the next morning it had unfortunately crashed on me. I set the same render off last night, using distributed with 2 nodes. This morning it was still rendering but there was an error popup on the master.

wxWidgets debug alert, I've attached a screenshot of the error.

Nothing out of ordinary in the scene, quite simple with a bit of forest pack, max 2015, not sure what else I can help with here, looks like a random one.
