Why go pro with Chaos Corona?

Ease of use

Chaos Corona is one of the easiest to learn render engines. Its setup really is as simple as pressing “Render”! Most new users will learn Chaos Corona in just one day, and fall in love with it over the next few.

Rendering quality

Chaos Corona delivers predictable, reliable, and physically plausible results with no compromises in quality. Realistic lighting and materials are yours right out of the box.


While we aim for realism, we also understand how important it is to “bend” physical laws to deliver the results your clients expect. To keep your artistry free, Corona supports numerous reality hacks which allow you to get exactly the effect you desire!

Speed & interactivity

Speed is an important factor in any production environment, and a renderer must always deliver results as fast as possible.


The whole process of creating lights is designed to give artists complete control over their scene, while being fast and intuitive.


Our design goal for Corona materials is to make them physically based, yet intuitive, flexible, and easy to set up.
