Syntactic Labyrinths

When we recently heard about an animation project using Corona Renderer for Cinema 4D, we got in touch with Blauw Films to learn more about it. Called “Syntactic Labyrinths”, it’s a science fiction story about trying to preserve the sum total of all human knowledge in the face of a calamity. Leonardo Verkoelen, the Director of Blauw Films, told us all about it!

Merry Christmas to all Coronauts!

As 2019 comes to a close, our thanks go out to the most important people in the development of Corona Renderer – you, our users! All of us here at Chaos Czech would like to wish you a wonderful holiday season, and many happy renderings in 2020!

We’d also like to announce that our office will be closed from Monday December 23rd until Wednesday January 1st inclusive – support will be limited during this time.

Recent Spaces test out caustics in production scenes

Corona Renderer 4 introduced a whole new way of calculating caustics – but are they practical for use in actual production scenes? And what about in animations?

London-based architectural & design visualization studio Recent Spaces are always on the look-out for the ultimate in photo-realism, so their artist Tobias Grendelmeier did some testing to find out and shared their findings with us.

Catching up with Valentinstudio

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!
