    Updated to 1.24.2.

    No changelog I could find anywhere but considering that the Max 2022 uses the same patch offsets, the only change is probably the port to Max 2023.

    There was a silent update for 1.24.2 recently.
    No reference to what has been fixed but there was some change in the Max 2023 version.

    It doesn't seem to correct the Scatter problem when using the traditional method but I suppose there are some non-traditional ones floating around :)

    A quickly stopped render before my laptop would burn.
    I threw in some Cosmos flower pots and an HDRI using their cute Illumi. Corona 8 for IPR rendering.

    Updated to 1.25.0.

    Nothing posted yet on what the changes are.
    Additionally, the crack is the same as in the previous version (and even before that), bit for bit and at the same offsets. You could probably use the previous crack but I haven't verified.

    No point doing a render for this but I did one for FumeFX + Arnold to celebrate the first time actually using Arnold for anything. Got to use what I crack., sometimes :)
    Cumbersome combination those two plugins though ...

    Updated to v1.25.1.

    No changelog available yet but four plugins have been updated plus the protection utility (still uses the same protection though).
    I tried Illumi (one of the four) but I hadn't looked at it in the last few versions so not sure if it's an internal change and/or something visible in its panel. Have a look at the current version before you upgrade if you're curious enough.
