Corona Renderer 3 for 3ds Max Released!

It’s only been a few months since the last release, but already it’s time to announce the release of Corona Renderer 3 for 3ds Max! It’s a smaller release this time, with the focus being on IR performance and reducing memory usage, adding instant GPU-based denoising mode,  randomization by Mesh Element (e.g. for different colored leaves on the same tree, or different colored planks in a single floor object), and many bug fixes.

Hyundai i30n “Turning Petrol Heads” – wearelut

We spoke with John Crawshaw from wearelut about their recent “Turning Petrolheads” project for the Hyundai i30n. This involved creating a 60 second TV ad and two 15 second TV spots, plus a print and billboard campaign (which included lenticular images, that change with angle of view, on the sides of London buses).

All the work featured a mix of CGI blended with real world footage, and we asked John about the challenges they faced.

One Day Love

In past articles, we’ve explored the work that goes into VFX from the point of view of the CGI artist – this time though we take a different view of the process, talking with Michael Mizrachi about the director’s point of view when working with lots of CGI, as happened in his recent work on the music video for “One Day Love“.

Know Your Devs – Ondra Karlik

With Corona Renderer, you don’t just get the software, you also get the team behind it. Using the software will teach you about that, but how do you get to know about the team?

That question gave us a new idea, “Know Your Devs”, where we invite users to post their questions for a particular developer, starting with… Ondra Karlik!
