i just got my email letting me know that FR2 service pack 1 is released!

downloading now, but figured i'd start a thread for people to post new features, changes or other info (hopefully not bugs of course)

with hair and FR2 now this will be a interesting holiday vacation week for many...

first question.

it seems IPClamp and the DR part of FR2 do NOT have to be updated? is that correct?

thanks - i just want to get started on the right foot.

I hope for an answer before doing anything.

Is this the fix to the problem of using 9.52 as a host? I hope so, since I didn't add 9.52 so as not to screw with the FR2 function.

Is there a readme with the SP so we know what is different?


OK, now I see the thread in the main section. Edwin addressed everything.

Great news! I hope this clears the decks for the OS X version to appear soon.

In the "Read This!" Readme..."If you are installing this as a Service Pack, then you do not need to reinstall IP-Clamp!"

Anyone know what's new in this release, aside from the stability fixes?

from the manual...


New Features:

1. The raytrace shader node is now able to render physically based dispersion effects. Spectral rainbow color banding as it appears with glass objects can now be simulated in a realistic way.

2. Physical Sky North indicator. The Physical Sky model has now the option to use any CINEMA 4D object as a North indicator.


Other Changes:

New Sample File "north_indicator.c4d" added to the GI-Rendering folder.

Fixes to several sample scenes with motion blur.

Updated Manual and fixes to some descriptions



Bug Fixes :

- Soft shadows artefact
- Crash with FR-Image and edge detection.
- Multiplier Value of the Displacement Tag not being taken into account
- texture tag/restriction: when a material has assigned an empty
selection the material must be restricted for the whole object.
- standard mtl/alpha channel: Added use "image alpha" support.
- standard mtl: missing shadow for raytracing based shadows.
- standard mtl": decal mapping working inverse for shadows.
- checkerboard shader: incorrect placement for shadow calculation.
- shadertree's checker (fR and CINEMA versions). Artifacts in some
situations with spherical/cylindrical mapping.
- Lights/visible light: when more than 1 light has visible selected...
only the first one appears in rendering
- some intersection problems solved
- problems with c4d NET and licences fixed
- Now shadowmap rasters last row/column
- Size of Arealights under 9.5 / RC1
- Crash when dragging objects in the shader tree
- Crash at rendering / SP1B4
- Soft shadows and motion blur
- Distributed rendering issues
- Noise name spelling
- Displacement tab spelling
- AQMC setting - spelling
- some shader crashes with GI
- many changes/fixes to shadows and transparencies
- DOF not working correctly fixed
- some problem with GI

- shading normals fixed
- crash in displacement fixed
- camera motion blur looks incorrect, fixed
- Big problems with Caps from Nurbs objects
- motion blur and raytrace node rendering bug
- added "angle" option to area shadows
- added volume caustics to the volumelight
- problems with uvs fixed
- fixed trails option
- time not set for sec. rays, fixed
- bug in matrix rotation interpolation, switched back to more

conservative interpolation (stable version)
- normals not transformed correctly with motionblur, fixed
- fixed problem with hierarchical textures
- added dispersion to raytrace node
- "remove unused materials" not working, fixed
- save maps to project not working with shadertree, fixed
- cut/copy material to different scenes not working, fixed
- added runtime dlls needed to run fR

Really, really, fantastic. This means I can install 9.52 and get the better FR2.

Merry Christmas!

fR2Sp1 sounds great.(Standing outside in the cold with nose pressed up against the glass. Well, off to play with M~R beta.)

Noise for light visibilty? Materials on lights? RPC? PSD Support?
I own this and dying to use it, but it doesn't work with the basic type of scene I do. I have wasted money so far.

Here is an example:

C4D native render time on PD 3.2: 0:38

fR2 (NO GI) distributed with a PD 3.2, P4 3.0, P4 2.7 and a PM 1.8: 29:33 (!!)

I don't think there is anything wrong with my set up. If a do a more traditional scene it smokes C4D big time. I put a dozen or more of these lights in a scene and it is completely unusable. I also NEED RPC and have hundreds of psd files I use all the time.

I have tried all sorts of light tags, options, materials, etc... If anyone wants to give it a shot go for it. (non-commercial use)

yes, besides GI, AA, MB etc cinema is a lot more speedier in some other things!

my dream is still a new ARv10 with buckets(DR) fast &beautiful GI etc.
plus a shader tree option like FR...

then AR would rock

cheers

38 seconds versus 29 minutes seems beyond comprehension.

Did you submit your requests to Cebas?
As far as RPC, it is a proprietary format, so the bridge needs to be developed by the makers of RPC, as far as I understand it.
