In this article, we catch up with Francesco Legrenzi, the author of what would go on to be the definitive guide for V-Ray back in 2008. Francesco has spent the last 4 years dedicating himself to writing a similar guide for Corona Renderer, with the aim of making it just as definitive! We spoke with him about the book, and the work that has gone in to writing it.
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.
