    Answered by lardbros. And in addition - you can multiselect every surface and it converts them all at once.



    The only thing it really misses is not turning on Glossy Reflections, but you can...

    It really makes a lot of sense if the cost of implementation and licensing is cheaper than a dev. Plus you get the added benefit of a larger team working on it and staying up with the latest tech...

    It's not really dramatic nor is speculative - he got fired. Mark stated so on the various social outlets. He works for Otoy now.

    For me I always am looking for good quality plants. Another thing I have bought in the past that is hard to make is clothing - folded stacked clothes. The pieces I bought were really good - they had...

    My curiosity got the best of me so just for kicks I rendered the scene in 2018.0.7. Of course when loading the scene it couldn't find Patina, Edge shader and the Input (whatever that is) but other...

    I do that all the time when I'm trying to track down an issue or see how something worked back in the day. The .cfg files are stored in different places.

  22. What happened to Polygon Side in 2018,19?

    In 2015 I used to use polygon side to get double sided polygons to have two different surface attributes. Now in 2018,19 I can still do the same but the color is not right. It's some kind of blend...
