  1. Rendering advice

    Corona renderer is currently free as it's still in Beta. It's far better than physical IMHO. There is a discussion on making crystals in it here - although it is for the Max version unfortunately: https://corona-renderer.com/forum/index.php?topic=12102.0
  2. Cerbera's Rockin' GIF Tips

    Great stuff!
  3. I imagine you should export the pass as 32bit and linear colour space.
  4. Gold Material Preset

    If I'm understanding you correctly, the problem is that metals have no diffuse colour. They only use reflection. So they need something that reflect in them - an environment basically. Add an area light - Then tick the 'show in reflection' box in it's Details tab. Do you see the gold object now?
  5. Render Farm Comparison

    Really helpful, thanks. If anyone wants to chime in with ease of use/reliability reviews too, it would be wonderful!
  6. interesting to see. It's unlikely I'd buy one - but not impossible. My desktop will be staying mac for a variety of treasons.... But I can't help but think its probably more efficient to use the 'normal' imac 27 with an i7. And just use a renderfarm for anything particularly big
  7. C4d Visualisation VS C4d Prime

    i started off thinking i didn’t need mograph, but quickly found out that its cloner tools are really essential. definitely for arch viz work. so i would not advise Prime. Also, i would consider Corona instead of V ray. And that is free while it’s still in beta!
  8. Try turning off specular in the material and use reflection only. I think that cures it
  9. Aaargh, retopologize horrible mesh?

    Ah yah, that’s the sort of thing I was looking for Cerbera. Thanks for for the other replies too. I know I can do it ‘properly’ with the poly pen and snapping. But it’s not the sort of project I want to spend too much time on. If i hit on any other bright ideas I’ll lrt you know
  10. Hi, I've been supplied an .stl file of a bottle. Naturally it has a horrible finely-triangulated mesh, which I need to convert to a nice clean quad version. I don't expect a magic bullet solution. But does anyone have a workflow to get me half way there? I have access to Rhino MoI and Modo V9 if that helps. Can't supply the file unfortunately. But any suggestions welcome!
  11. C4D Corona - Paris Apartment Scene

    Hmmm, yeah something's very wrong. On my modest iMac it only takes 2 minutes to reach 4 passes. I know there are multiple setups in that scene. Perhaps you have more than one turned on? It's probably best to just re-download the scene and the latest corona build and go from there
  12. Merging spline from illustrator

    Also, take a look at using copy/paste from Illustrator by using the CV-Artsmart plugin instead. It's free from Cineversity if you have a MSA. Much better than downsaving to Illustrator 8.
  13. Corona alpha material

    Material stacking is in the roadmap for corona, and I believe that it is the next thing that they're going to implement now that the interactive render is finished. MANY people are waiting for it and the Corona team know.
  14. MSA

    I'm often curious about this sort of thread. No-one likes paying for what they don't need. But if you're earning money from it, you can probably expense quite a bit of the cost, no? That's certainly why I keep up to date. If it's just a hobby, then it's a very expensive one and i would stay at the bare minimum version. Or more likely switch to blender.
  15. Chaos Group Purchased Corona

    Fingers crossed for this. Forgetting the CPU/GPU wars, Corona simply produces the some of the most exquisite images around. Perhaps the release will even be moved forward if there's more hands working on it.
