New Horizons – plans for 2017 and beyond

New Horizons

New Horizons for Corona Renderer

Today marks the beginning of a new era for Render Legion and Corona Renderer. We will be doubling our development team so that we can build more great software, and do so faster and smarter.

How? After a long 13 months of perfecting our plans, we have agreed to join forces with Chaos Group, which will make a massive long-term investment in Corona Renderer, paired with a vast amount of their technological IP which will help us to push Corona Renderer and other projects even further.

We firmly believe that by making this move we do the best possible thing for you, our users, to deliver the best tools in the shortest period of time while future-proofing the company.

We are happy that we were able to find a partner who is respectable, skilled and with a proven track record of creating great software, and who shares the same vision about the future of CG software.

Spring 2015: Roadmap and Project Update

Roadmap

Our roadmap for 3ds Max version is finally online on our trello board. We have published information about two upcoming versions so now you can see what is ahead.

Corona Renderer Roadmap

As you can see we intend to release the version 1.2 in less than 45 days after the release of the version 1.1. We would like to keep a similar release cycle also for the most of the future updates.

Corona for Cinema4D: 1 week after

Attention to all C4D Coronauts!

Exactly 1 week ago, we have launched the first public Cinema4D build of Corona Renderer. Since then we have monitored and analyzed the overwhelming feedback from the cg community. We are extremely pleased with the number of users who decided to try it and amount of positive feedback we got,  considering this is only the first version.

Some bugs popped up, which is understandable, since the code is still “young”. Any in-house testing cannot cover all the possibilities that the thousands of users out there will try. Normally, we would wait for the Alpha2 with the fixes, but with so many new users trying out Corona Renderer, we have decided to speed up things a little, and go for 1.1 hotfix. We will try to fix most of the problems in 1-2 weeks, and release an updated version as soon as possible. Promise.

OSX version?

Next frequently brought up question is the OSX version. It is possible to port Corona Renderer to other platforms, but doing that will require time which we currently do not have.  So while we will do OSX version as soon as possible, it won’t happen before the commercial release of 3dsmax version later this year. We should also mention that the Cinema4D version of Corona will stay free even after the commercial 3ds max release, until the plugin is stable and mature.

We would once again like to thank all Cinema4D users who decided to give Corona a spin. If you keep your enthusiasm, Cinema might even rival 3ds max as the main Corona platform in the future.
