From what I understand standalone renderers suck, and nobody is using them anyway
This is not true!!not everone wants to use max, cinema, or any main stream program$$$
Octane standalone works great.. if corona had similar, better, then more for corona!!

Hello Ondra
I do not know if it will be possible in the future ... but there is also among modelers form•Z  and  form•Z jr, previously called bonZai3d.

Regards
Raf

Modo already has vray, octane, and pretty good native renderer.
You want half a million users as potential customers? Go with indie appz.

I agree, I still consider sketchup to be an indie app, but a super popular one with no built in renderer. huge market potential... why compete when you can dominate? the biggest drawbacks for me and many users in buying vray for sketchup are the complicated settings, half baked results as a result of incorrect settings and bad material and light integration.... I never get past the trial period because I just stop using it...

Completely agree on this, wrote it before :- )

Typical Sketchup user doesn't have patience for Vray, nor performance for Maxwell (or some more obscure older pathtracers that still linger as legacy). Corona, plus perhaps cheaper, special licence for Sketchup would be great business step,
if marketed properly. It could be integrated almost as one button into its simple UI. Ten of thousands of users would be beyond the scope smaller DCC apps could ever bring on.

+ 1 for Corona SketchUp.

Plus a wish for possibility of import/export of Corona materials between supported programs, so that a Corona SketchUp scene could be imported in Max complete with lights and materials etc.

Could it also be possible to import Corona Max files (whole scene) into Corona SketchUp (and other Corona supported apps) via this corona exporter, then the "world domination" would be very near!

Keep it up

I am more then happy with Corona itself and having it available for my freelance work is amazing (Autodesk subscription for 3dsmax + Corona subscription on demand is superb) but I would really want to have it available at work as well.

Problem is that we are using all Macs in the studio and we are mostly using C4D and Maya (some Sketchup also sometimes) for OSX... if we could get an OSX version for any of those programs, even Sketchup, it would be amazing :)

I cannot wait to have Corona power on OSX platform, no matter of application.

i wonder why has lightwave not been taken into consideration for porting? potentially there are lot of LW users interested into this engine, as they don't have any vray option. any explanation?

i would be a potential customer for sure, but it has to be mac compatible.

cheers

I can assure you it WAS taken into consideration. We just cannot do everything at once.

You've described me to the TEE! :D :D :D

I just paid for the upgrade to the latest version of Podium... It's much faster now in terms of processing the model (converting the sketchup meshes into its own format) because they upgraded their code base from Ruby to C++ hence the speed increases. Wonderful... but not wonderful enough :( I still dream of producing a Corona render one day!

I am FASCINATED though by this new functional programming language called Haskell. www.haskell.org
It's specialty is that it is LAZY... sounds brilliant.

Why would you think it is not? Did we say "we will never do lighwave"? ;)
