Chaos Corona 8 released!

We are excited to announce the release of Corona 8! This is a big release in so many ways:

– It’s the first time we have released the 3ds Max and Cinema 4D versions on the same day

– It’s the first version with our all-new branding which you will find in the software, on our website, in our emails, and more.

– Yes, the official name is now Chaos Corona, not Corona Renderer!

– Most important of all, it has more features than any release before!

Merry Christmas, Coronoauts!

2021 is coming to a close, and we’re looking forward to heading into an exciting 2022 alongside you, our users. Every major feature coming in Corona 8 is based on user requests, and we can’t wait to be wowed by the artwork you create with the next version, just as you have amazed us this year!

Just before we head off for the year, please join us in congratulating the winner of our Christmas Contest – Studio 403! Their image is being used for our Christmas banners as seen at the top of this blog post, and they have won themselves an annual Corona license. We’d also like to thank everyone who entered, and gave the team here such a fun challenge in choosing a winner.

With Corona 8 Daily Builds, you can slice more than your Christmas cake

Last, we’d also like to announce that our office will be closed on Monday December 20th and will reopen on Monday January 3rd – support will be limited during this time.

All of us here at Chaos Czech would like to wish you a fantastic holiday season, and we’ll see you soon in 2022!

Corona in 2022: new features, visuals, licensing, and more!

When we joined forces with Chaos Group four years ago, we started a project to integrate Corona with what is now the Chaos ecosystem in a way that would benefit you, and make our own development process faster and more efficient. Our goal was to benefit from being part of the Chaos family, while carefully preserving what makes Corona unique and loved.

This process was (and still is) challenging and has taken longer than we anticipated. On top of that, the 3D visualization market always keeps evolving, and we have to keep adapting to the changes as we go. However today, we are pleased to announce that we have now made significant progress, and we want to share all the changes that you will be seeing in the upcoming Corona Renderer 8 release at the beginning of 2022.
