In the comments is mentioned an other way. So, put  Fresnel in filter, so you can access to curve + have possibility to tune each channel separately... red, green .....

 Another thing bothers me, adjusting the bump channel. It seems to me that Corona is more responsive to Normal Maps. So i make some experiments with Height to normal ( plugin for C4D ) and Cinema native normalizer. The results are ... inconsistent. Sometimes it responds well, sometimes I get a weird result.
on left are plank with BW bump map, right is height to normal plug. I love this plugin. itself has plenty of options for adjusting, for some quick work is ideal. But in other cases, the result was unusable.
