I'm happy to share my entry for the Evermotion Getaway Challenge with everyone.

For this project I used Corona Render for 3ds Max, Forest Pack, Vray, and Photoshop. While I can say I am a huge Corona supporter, the process of creating this image with Corona was quite challenging for a few reasons.. First off I was set on achieving a fish-eye lens effect which currently doesn't exist in Corona. This lead me to have to use the old school method of building the whole scene in reverse and pointing the camera into a mirror ball. Another feature Corona does not currently support is for reflections to "affect all channels" like Vray does. To work around this I created a duplicate scene and rendered with Vray in order to get render elements like shadows, raw lighting, multimattes, etc. I also used the Vray scene to set up the Phoenix FD Ocean Tex for the water. Just out of curiosity I tested the Ocean Tex within the Corona scene and surprisingly it worked! Although since I was reflecting the entire scene in the mirror ball I had to change the Corona displacement from screen size to world size which added a large amount of render time. All in all I was happy with the way Corona was able to handle the scene and especially the water although there are a few tweaks to the software that could have made the process much smoother.

I am in the process of making a break down if anyone is interested in seeing.

That's a-w-e-some!! Absolutely stunning project and something different from the usual stuff posted here.

Also, please make sure to post feature requests for the stuff you were missing. I agree that proper fish-eye mode is something that absolutely needs to be supported.

The image is stunning! Please do make break down and post it here - definitely there are people who would love to see that.

BTW, for the fisheye, you could render spherical pano, which Corona supports and convert equirectangular to one of the few fisheye projections in post. Much easier and flexible than old school mirror ball :]
I'm not Corona Team member. Everything i say, is my personal opinion only.

Interesting to know where is here Vray, where is Photoshop and where is Corona:)
I see is many compositing and post-processing work here/

Sweet! Nice refreshing concept. I love it. Coming from Vray to corona myself recently I know your frustrations, I hope now they are in the same group these get addressed quickly. As generally I prefer the Corona workflow and framebuffer.

This was also my favourite image from the competition. It's a fantastic idea and I think you executed it extremely well.

I'm very interested to see your breakdown!
