In June last year, the BW3 arch-viz conference took place in Wroclaw, Poland. Corona Renderer was very well represented, and we caught up with organizer Michal Nowak, and artists Bartosz Domiczek and Marcin Jastrzebski to hear more about the CG industry in Poland today.Read about BW3 and CG in Poland!

It’s good to make new friends, but it’s great to meet up with old friends and catch up on what has been going on! Almost exactly two years ago, back in 2017, we had the pleasure of presenting a company profile of Valentinstudio, a 3D agency based in Lyon, France. We caught up with them to hear about what has changed in those 2 years, and see some of their latest projects!Read the latest from valentinstudio!
It’s the time of year to sit by the pool, with a drink in hand beneath the bright sun, and that means you are going to see a lot of a particular feature of light – caustics! Fortunately, Corona Renderer 4 for Cinema 4D is here to let you add those effects into your renders for the ultimate in realism, thanks to the addition of fast and easy caustics.
That’s not all you’ll find in this release though! There’s also the ability to run Interactive Rendering in a docked Cinema 4D viewport, object picking and manipulation within IR (and moving the camera view from in there too), Inside Volume mode for true 3D volumes, Intel AI denoising (for any CPU), correct displacements when stacking materials, the fisheye camera, and more!

Making high-quality product renders is an art form all of its own, especially when the product in question is itself exclusive and high-quality so that the images have to exude class. We spoke with freelance artist David Turfitt about how he uses Corona Renderer for Cinema 4D to create high-end marketing materials for whisky companies like Beam Suntory.

We last spoke with iamstatic back in October of 2017, and today we catch up with David Greene, Director / Partner at IAMSTATIC, to learn about some of their recent projects, including BMW stunts on the salt flats, a backwoods scene that is not going to end well for one person, and horse racing that plays out on wallpaper!

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!
