max 2016 and Vray 3.30.3 Camera gone?
show user profile  3joez
Vray cam gone? Oh lord.

I see I've gotta use max new physical camera. Questions for ya:

Where's ISO control?
Will you guys use exposure control('8' button) upon the regular physical 3dsmax camera(I assume the exposure control is better handled by the camera, so just to know)?

If you want the vray physical camera type the following in maxscript:

vrayCreateVRayPhysicalCamera()

I know that Joey. But reading on chaosgroup forum it seems that the new physical camera is now the standard. The iso control is also there, once you select manual exposure gain. What still confuses me is the "image control" curve(8 button). Does it overlay on your vray original color mapping? I see that the new exposure has a curve that squashes highlights and bumps shadows, which I obviously don't want.

Image control is not exposure control. It relates to a color response curve:

The color response curve is what's used in a real camera's sensor chip.
Maybe Bolts knows more about it.

So in 3.3, there's now a general physical camera that works for multiple rendering systems baked into max 2016.

Here's the documentation on that:

There's some talk about the replacement of the camera here:

Here's the "why" from Vlado:

It has a better viewport representation (you can preview the DOF effect even). Also, exposure lock - you can adjust DOF/moblur without these affecting the image brightness. Finally, it's a part of 3ds Max now, so 3rd party tools have no excuse to not support it

Understood. Thx. The mapping is only applied if you DON'T use in camera parameters.
