This is what I see when I open the .c4d file.

Can I ask what version of Corona are you running?

Opening up you file beanzvision there's a missing plugin called Corona Physical. I haven't come across this before. Which also means I can't use the textures.
is it a V7 thing or something else?

Just seen a similar topic a few posts before so I'll have a look through those posts....

[C4D] I need help! / Frosted plastic material tips

Does anyone have any advice for making a frosted plastic? I've made a good start but can't work out the diffuse colour absorption.  (Reference image is Octane). I thought that it would be SSS, but no matter what I try the discs behind it always seem clear.

Thank you. Displacements seems to catch me every time.

[C4D] I need help! / Not rendering clones
« on: 2021-04-29, 10:54:25 »
I was working on a very similar scene yesterday with no problem. Today is a different story — My clones aren't rendering (IR or PV). I even tried v7 to see if that helped but it didn't. (there was an error about an invalid number but wouldn't let me save the report).
If anyone has any bright idea the would be amazing — I have tried so many things.....
File here:

V6 yes. but I'm not using any instances in this scene. Probably should come to think of it.
Maybe it's the displacements and not the distance shader that is causing the differences between the IR and PV.
I'll download v7 and give it a go. I'm assuming its easy to revert back to v6 if I need more stability?

Thanks for your help – The reason for using the distance shader was just to learn how to use it.
I've got it working now. Sort of. But the output from the interactive renderer is different than the picture viewer. Is this expected?

I've clicked on the [help] button and read the document for the distance shader but I still can't quite work out how to use it. I have a sand material that I'd like to fade out towards the horizon revealing a rock material on a duplicate object. But I can't make that happen. I also get some text overlaying the sand too which is very odd. Here's a screenshot of my material setup, which I tried to base off the sea foam example.
Can anyone help out?

The fur in the attic renders is brilliant, particularly on the cushion.

I loaded it as I usually do > light material > texture…

UPDATE: Rebooted C4D and it's working. <shrug>

[C4D] I need help! / Light material/HDR with EXR file
« on: 2021-01-27, 20:33:03 »
I recently bought a set of HDRI images. I thought I could use them as environment or HDR lights but maybe the latest version doesn't support them as my scene is dark as isthe material preview. I'm sure I have used them before.... or am I missing something.

I've got a super random problem with a file. If I move some of my objects they are not updated in the render (interactive/viewport/VDB etc).
Anyone know how to troubleshoot this?
