Merry Christmas to those celebrating it today!
CentiLeo 0.47 alpha for 3ds Max 2014-2017 is available.
It has a lot of quality improvements. Post-processing contrast adds nice image feeling. While most work was spent for material behavior improvement and bugfixing. Really many things were polished in cntl std material.
Recommendation to increase render speed:
Light lister script by Ali Kavyani:
Change Log: cntlmax 0.471 alpha (2016 Dec 31)
[core] Improved render speed for scenes with many lights and rough reflections
[core] Improved render speed for bump mapping on polished surfaces (with roughness close to zero)
[core] Fixed fireflies in few situtations
[cntlmax] Fixed crash when click “View Image” in cntlTexture and go up.
Change Log: cntlmax 0.470 alpha (2016 Dec 25)
[core] Added post-processing contrast setting. 0.5 by default, it makes the image more realistic
[core] cntlStdMaterial: glossyness usage as alternative to roughness (if checked then roughness is replaced with glossyness and treated accordingly).
[core] cntlStdMaterial: weight*color mixing mode similar to other engines
[core] cntlFalloff: parallel falloff mode
[core] Faster many-bounce internal reflections inside complex glass object.
[core] Roughness remapping. Now all the range 0..1 is more interesting unlike before when most interesting values were close to zero.
[core] Many bugfixes for material behavior when roughness is changed. Now the highlights are changing smoothly for small change of roughness.
[core] Fixes environment map brightness when seen through reflection
[cntlmax] Post-process can be performed when render is paused
