I was hoping it had to do with displacement.

Any idea when a displacement improvement is coming? When I displace ground for example it looks funny. Like there is a gap. It has been reported before.

Keep up the great work. Every client of mine loves D!!

Hi Oliver

Would like to get on the discord server, though never received an email for the link.

hey @gelbuilding I’ll send you a link

Good afternoon, how do I get a download link, I am the owner of the pro version

I’ll send you a link, please check your DM.

Creo que lo más importante es solucionar dos aspectos básicos del render:

  1. El efecto blanco que se crea en un árbol cuando esta delante de un cristal (adjunto foto).

  2. El reflejo incorrecto de los materiales en zonas oscuras (adjunto foto, ver la maceta de la planta).


I think the most important thing is to solve two basic aspects of the render:

  1. The white effect that is created in a tree when it is in front of a glass (attached photo).
  2. The wrong reflection of the materials in dark areas (attached photo, see the pot of the plant).
