    Glas isn't transparent

    can you try this? as Vizn said I also don't understand the double lens unless it would be slightly smaller and have a different coating perhaps, but maybe you can explain I noticed your color was checked, but I recommend to do this in the transparency itself and check off the color entirely your reflectance channel has the missing component Layer fresnel > Dielectric > Glass which gives a bit more realism to be honest or you could add also add Dielectric Pearl which gives the illusion of coatings glass.c4d coated glass.c4d

    beautiful render I was unable to download your project to test how close I could get with rendering in Cycles 4D

    of course that's true and got the latest version on DAZ Download Manager supposedly 64bit after what 5 years (?) at least, and still not sure if it really is a 64bit on Mac this is how I use DAZ today but in the old days it was daily: DAZ Studio if I really need to render spectral caustics with IRay in CPU mode (LOL..., sad really...) Hexagon is history Bryce is history as it doesn't work on macOS Sierra Carrara 7 Pro exclusively for landscape wavefront obj and nothing more to be honest DAZ is a total mystery to me "you never know what is hitting you in front or stabbing you in the back" remember when all DAZ products were free with the exclusion of Carrara (their "flagship" you need patience to look and actually find it on the store page; same with Bryce and until recently same with Hexagon) I'm not sure what DAZ is really up to for characters I use Poser (figure) you get what you pay for most of the time not saying Blender is bad but it doesn't jive with me at all and the latest version is even more a nightmare to get around doing the most simple things Blender really hates me to the bone, nothing I can do about, that's why I had enough and got C4D and I'm happy

    awesome renders I'm impressed with a free version I mean 3DS Max users have the no-time-limited free Alpha version, I would be OK with a Beta version with no time limit and why not (?) hobbyists are on a low budget and think money-wise not like studios do no offence if I would do commercial work, of course I spend every year up to 500 quit but I can't

    I fully trust your opinion let's hope for enthusiasts and hobbyists like me there will be a Corona (Alpha-Beta) version like for 3DS Max available at no cost btw. I'm a Mac user, too and GPU is the problem on a Mac-Mini that's why Cycles 4D (but have to say Cycles4D Forum is a waste of time) cheers for the 3D-two cents

    Thanks Dan, your findings would be much appreciated because I'm interested as I'm at the mo somewhere in between Cycles 4D and Corona cheers keep up the good work

    on the other hand there is Cycles 4D (no rental) but as I'm no expert would be interested how you compare Cycles with the other renders you have obviously way more expertise what do you say?
  15. ambitious project you get this in no time
