Corona

How's the update for this script with Corona sun going?
I'll donate enough for a beer, but it has to be a Corona. :)

Hdri sequence?

This script is exactly what I'm looking for, but I'm working with a hdri sequence. Is it possible to adapt it so the script would edit the sun's location for every frame instead of just once?

Doesn't work - something has since broken it ?

I'm using 3DS Max 2017, V-Ray 3.60.04 and it doesn't work.

It creates the Dome, creates the sun, doesn't put the HDRI in the Environment Map Slot and it doesn't Bind the Sun to the HDRI.....

Something has happened to cause this to now, longer work.

3DS Max 2017 update maybe ?

finalRender R3.6 support

Amazing script, thank you for your work.
Could you please add support for fR? It has the same light type as Vray, called fR-Dome light.
I am ready to assist with any MXS property of fR light that you might need.
Thank you very much.

I was waiting fot a tool like

I was waiting fot a tool like this for a long time, thank you Lnio so much for creating and sharing it!
Personally, being a predator I'd prefer a domelight to be VISIBLE with intensity set to 30.
IF you could disable a preview generating in Open File window and adding chosen map to Environment would it cut processing times?
Thanks once again
