Corona Converter script is not working!



Note: the converter will only work if you have both Corona and the other renderer installed on the machine where you are using it. It is fine to use the trial or even expired trial license of the other renderer. 
For example - if you are converting V-Ray materials to Corona, you need to have both Corona and V-Ray installed on your computer 



The below solutions apply to the cases where:

  • The converter script is not working
  • The max-script window appears and shows an error message

3) Set Maxscript initial heap allocation to 256 MB in 3ds Max settings as instructed in the attached screenshots and then restart 3ds Max:
