Fantastic, imo autodesk failed miserably in their attempt to copy this plugin. color correct > color correction
Thanks

First off - thank you so much for your work on CC over the years - I prefer it over the shipping Autodesk one.

I think I've run into a bug. I've been noticing 3dsmax.exe staying in task manager after max has quit - yesterday I actually had a dozen 3dsmax.exe processes running all using up 200MB because I hadn't restarted in a while...

I'm trying to track down the problem and I *think* it's CC - or at least related to it. On my computer I can easily reproduce the error. My test case is with scanline renderer selected (this was just to idiot proof the debug - originally I noticed this problem with V-Ray) and an empty maxstart file. Activate material editor, put CC into any map slot now quit Max. 3dsmax.exe will stay in task manager.

Thanks for the feedback Christopher,

Unfortunately I won't have time to work on until after Siggraph. I'll definetely check that issue when I have some spare time for sure.

I can confirm Christopher's findings - same here - Brazil 2 as renderer if that matters. I'll also repeat his thanks... awesome plugin!

Hi Cuneyt,

Color Correct is an amazing plugin, the whole 3D team at RMJM HK has been using this for ages and we have recently updated max to 2010. Like others have mentioned here with the 3dmax.exe remaining in memory bug - will you be looking to fix this anytime soon? Our work pipeline relies heavily on this plugin for colorcorrection (max's version is just so bad).

Cheers and thanks for your hardwork and dedication once again

Hello Cuneyt,

Great plugin, thankyou. We've just upgraded to 2010 design x64 and have the same problem, multiple 3dsmax.exe running in task manager.

Cuneyt - any chance of open sourcing CC so the community can fix the bug?

I can't really prove it, but I'm suspecting that this bug may also be causing random crashes for me in max 2010 while working in the mat editor. It's usually a 'friendly' crash, but it happens several times a day. Anybody else having similar issues?

We're not really getting crashes in the mat editor in 2010..it's just the 3dmax.exe remaining in memory bug...luckily it does not keep multiple exe's open on the farm nodes after a heavy number of jobs. Hope there is a fix for it soon as a lot of old projects have color correct embedded in the materials :(

I have just set up a new clean machine and so happy to be bug free.
I have two questions:

1)I have extensively used this plugin in all my past projects/materials - will installing this plugin create subtle and annoying problems for me by compromising max/brazil?

2)does anyone have a script to rescue scenes from color correct and replace it with the inferior max version?

I'm just looking for a work around as it takes huge amounts of time to go back and revise a render for a client and have to hunt through the scene looking for materials that have the plugin and try to rebuild them.

What are people doing to get up and running? (third question I guess). I love this plugin but need to keep going.
Cheers,

Personally I haven't had any problems other than 3dsmax.exe processes needing to be killed with task manager after closing 3dsmax. I know others have wondered if there are stability issues with CC but personally, with XP64+Design 64+VRay the only serious problem is the processes staying around in memory.

As to whether you can script a replacement - that's tricky. There was someone on the vray forums who tried to do something along those lines but it's problematic. You have to have CC installed in order for a script to read the settings from it (ie whether you adjusted hue, etc) which IMHO makes it only marginally useful since you can't truly remove CC...

With all that said - we're using it here on a regular basis. We don't create any *new* CC maps (learned to use the shipping one instead) but we do have it installed for legacy files.

Christopher,


Thanks so much for your response. You've calmed my nerves and saved me a lot of time. I'll install and move ahead. The shipped version seems so clunky. Do you use this function primarily for gamma correction of materials in 'linear workflow'?

Woohoo! There is a solution and it's working great for us!

James Haywood of Bungie Studios posted a maxscript that uses dot net to forcibly kill max on exit... We've been using it for several days now and it's working great for us. http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=98&t=850661

I tracked most of my mat editor crashes to something else. I just tried the kill script and it seems to work for me... thanks for the info!

It'll be very helpful if ColorCorrect can be implemented as a material not just a map.

I used to work with Af Material Correct, which is unfortunately not available for max 2010.

If ColorCorrect can do it, I'll be grateful till the end of my life

Anyway, thanks for the great plugin.

Yup, 3dsmax.exe remains in the memory. Windows 7 x64, 3dsmax 2010 x64 + all current patches.

If we load and use Color-Correct as is will it work OK - other than the closing down of MAX it performs?
Color Correct is essential for some large models, I could deal with this.

Great Plugin, I'd be glad to pay for it!
