So this is happening now!? https://www.chaosgroup.com/news/render-legion-and-corona-join-chaos-group-family What can we expect with this? At my studio, there's both excitement and concern. I see that corona will be implementing Vray's DMC in 1.7. Is there any worry that one day Choas group will shut down Corona? Comments, questions, concerns, etc?

Cheers!

Probably not shut down, but cripple, take all the goods and raise price, apsolutely! Many studio use Corona with alot of subscriptions, this is definetly changing it. Very bad move guys.

I have to admit that i'm a bit scared... but ok, for now it is a good thing...

Think about Autodesk buying Alias (Maya, StudioTools...) and let it live beside 3dsmax...

Based on this post from Corona, it seems there should be little cause for concern.

I don't know what to think really. Usually, I am a very positive person, but, in a general way both software do the same, so why a company that is trying to be profitable will want to have two of the same??
Corona team was really kicking Chaosgroup to make a better software, They were an absolute winner after Metal Ray, and Final Render and good old Brazil virtually died.
Development of VRay was consistent but after corona came in the game, boy those 'new features' came up pretty quickly.
Corona came with a big bang!!.
now what?

The blog post sounds nice, of course, because you're trying to sell it to us. But there are too many examples of this kind of thing making things worse for the end user to make me worried. How long will Chaos Group keep two separate renderers that are very similar and in direct competition? I really don't see Corona and V-Ray being two separate products for very long. It's just sad that competition always get stomped out by the bigger guy. You got Autodesked.
