As 2020 comes to an end, we want to extend our best wishes to you, our users! You are what make Corona Renderer what it is, and all of us here at Chaos Czech wish you a wonderful holiday season, and an awesome 2021!
We also want to announce that our office will be closed from Monday December 21st until Monday January 4th – support will be limited during this time.

Developing something as sophisticated and complex as a mature render engine is no easy task. We thought you would enjoy a look behind the scenes at some of what goes into it, and this time our focus is on how we choose what to work on next, and what kinds of things can affect our plans.
We love featuring the work of our users on our blogs, but we also want to return to giving you behind-the-scenes access to what is happening here at Corona Renderer HQ. This is the first in a series of ongoing articles welcoming you in to our development process!

Pikcells are a design-driven studio with 15 years in the industry. Recently they’ve been working on something new for them, creating TV ads for long-term client Wren Kitchens, and we caught up with Creative Director Richard Benson to hear how they used Corona to composite actors into a rendered kitchen.
Back in 2018, we talked with Brazilian animation studio Stratostorm. We caught up with them again recently to learn about their beautiful new short film ‘Umbrella’, Directed by Helena Hilario and Mario Pece on their duo directorial debut. With character design by Victor Hugo (known for his work with Marvel and Disney), the animation has been taking the film festival world by storm, winning a lot of awards on its path to the Academy Awards (hopefully!)
