I haven't seen any mention of a full, Cinema 4D based user manual. I'm hoping there is something I can refer to, similar to C4D's manual.

Every single software that I've used in the latest 20 years had some form of manual, the odd thing is that we need to ask for it.
No matter how intuitive a software is, it should come with a manual, especially for advanced users that need to get the most out of it is important to know every parameters in detail;)
Also I suspect that many question here in the forum will be avoided if an extensive documentation exists.

Go to Help in the Corona menu. I don't know how deep it is, but there is a "manual" of some kind in there. That's what I meant by **Yes It Does**.

Yes I've seen that, but looks more like a quick introduction guide rather than a comprehensive manual;) I appreciate the included tutorials though

No plans to do a manual, sorry (just as there is no manual for 3ds Max) - it would be a full time task keeping it updated with all the changes all the time! Instead, we focus on the online Helpdesk (https://help.c4d.corona-renderer.com/support/solutions), and then tutorials on YouTube for more in-depth workflow type information.

Online Helpdesk will be perfectly fine, you just need to cover more features because right now it's pretty basic;)
