We had the luxury of being able to do things differently right from the start, and we took advantage of that not only in development but also when creating our licensing plans.

We have two simple goals:

  1. to make Corona Renderer affordable for as many users as possible, and
  2. to secure reliable funding for the development of Corona Renderer so that it keeps improving.

The Global Reach of Corona Renderer

Corona is actively used in 143 countries around the world, and that means the average wage for our users can differ by a factor of 20. Even with today’s internet, most CG artists work for local customers, and that means at local prices.

We want to offer our product to the broadest audience around the globe for a fair price that would suit everyone. Traditional perpetual license models don’t fit this concept as they require a large up–front investment, which is unaffordable to many. That’s why we came up with the solution that we call FairSaaS licensing.

Licensing Options

  • This is a subscription–based model that is paid annually or monthly and can be cancelled, resumed, upgraded, or downgraded as you go, without any additional penalties.. You can read more about the FairSaaS here.

  • We are also offering student licenses with massive discounts. More details are provided in a separate article.

  • Even with a fair price and no large upfront investment, not everyone can afford to purchase extra software. That’s why we keep at least one completely free fully–working version – there are no watermarks, no resolution limits, and yes, you can use it for commercial work! That version is Corona Renderer for 3ds Max Alpha 6, which has been successfully used in many production projects.

    The old Alpha version is a capable engine, and may be all that you need – but Corona Renderer has come a long way since that version of course, as you can see in our New Features videos below:

Social Responsibility

We want to make a difference to more than just the world of rendering, so we contribute some money from our business to those who are less fortunate. We donate part of our revenue to global and local charities, and our team members help to decide where the money should go.
