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!

Recent Spaces and theViewer – animated photorealistic VR

Recent Spaces spoke with us to give a breakdown of how they are adding animation and interactivity to pre-rendered VR thanks to development work they’ve done along with theViewer, to bridge the choice between photorealism and immersion. As part of that, they’ve been taking advantage of Corona Renderer’s compatibility with Phoenix FD too!

Corona Renderer for Cinema 4D, Beta 2, Release Candidate 1 Released!

Corona Renderer for Cinema 4D Beta 2 RC 1 released

We are pleased to announce that the Release Candidate 1 for Corona Renderer for Cinema 4D, Beta 2 is out now!

The long-awaited Corona node material system has finally been implemented, but that’s not all – we also managed to implement other interesting features such as the scene converter and hair rendering support (Note: the Corona Hair Material can be used to control the look of the hair, but to use the frizz or curl parameters, the Cinema Hair Material must be used together with the Corona one – this will be improved in the first daily builds after the Beta 2 stable release).

We also did some rewriting of the internals, for example to bring more stability to motion blur, and we removed the flipping of the Y and Z axis to make fixing bugs easier in the future.
