For users of C4D - this is very important. We are closely watching as developing Corona.
We can easily ensure the popularity of high-quality software in the Russian society C4D. We do free lessons and actively help new users to learn.

Regards.

Yes, that is cool, altough I am a little bit worried about this:
Rendering is magic.

Ok, after considering the options we have decided to start Corona for Cinema 4D.

Piracy is everywhere in Germany and in the U.S., but they did not ask for this information in Google, they use torrents.
Piracy should be seen as free advertising and PR.
A good example of a policy of Autodesk.
Usually at home can stand pirated version for training, but all the official studio buy software. And buying the software that is well known and it has a lot of experts.

Cinema is also very popular in France and Germany, I think that you will have success.

Corona it's young and powerfull.
he has need a young and powerfull promising software like modo.
- modo has merged with the foundry that it's a huge place for promote corona.
- modo has growing very fast and enter the vfx world with the foundry merge
- the modo community is huge and ready for powerfull unbiased render.
- support for developers in the forum are welcome
- the modo user are all over the world not only in russia.
- modo is cheap
- you can do DR on unlimited render node for free
- look at the modo gallery the huge amount of good render. but lack in real photorealism.
- all modo product, kit, plugin (when they are usefull) sell well.
- i'm not against c4d users so why not make for both c4d user and modo user
- sotimage in production has already arnorld in place.
- vray for most poeple is the saint graal (why ?? i don't no) for archviz rendering. it integrated in all other app like c4d softimage maya max
- modo learning and use is fast.
- i could find many other arguments

    Free/very cheap licence and SDK for university students : YES
    Wide user base in need of a realistic renderer : YES
    General good health of the package (is fast, capable of production work, active development, generally bug-free, ...) : YES
    Ease-of-use of the application for end users : YES

    Reasonable C++ API - I DONT KNOW BUT I THINK YES
    Plenty of documentation/example implementations of plugins  I DONT KNOW
    Official support for developers (e.g. discussion forums) : YES

Sorry man ;). If I get additional programmer, or Cinema4D turns out to be not viable, modo will be considered again.

Looks like I missed the boat here.

I'd like to see a version as a standalone that I can export to from sketchup.

hi all

i would say that corona should be implemented in the major autodesk products:
3d max
maya
softimage

they work hand in hand and with this, corona can cover all aspects of 3d producton like archvis, animation, character animation, simulation, dynamic simulation, hair, particles, fluids, etc.

modo has already a very good renderer and with the new character animation tools, modo want to go in that "animation market"...the same goes for cinema4d.

my opinion...

modo afaik have good and fast default render, c4d... don't know, i use softimage and can descript situation from "inside SI":
- we have arnold with very good intergation, he best for outdoor and more instances (like forest or grass). You don't war with arnold in this field. I like arnold, but he useless for indoor.
- we have mental. He not good for indoor and can't make BIG outdoor like arnold.
- we have vray (now all have vray :)). All 3dmax users say he fast for indoor, need taught... or mb corona? SI users only recently have vray and still he don't "took place" in hearts and minds. If corona a little bit better\faster\stable than vray for indoor you can easy get SI users

Sorry for my eng.

ps. SI have tool for "convert" (replace) shaders phong\architectural\etc - http://felixgeremus.com/?cat=3#mm_shadertools

Just a random and probably impossible thought: Corona would be really kick ass together with Terragen.

If someone says XSI has Arnold it means he actually never seen it. There could be no competition between Arnold and Corona, they are aimed on different things.

Softimage:
Free/very cheap licence and SDK for university students
Autodesk student license

Wide user base in need of a realistic renderer
Not wide unfortunately.

General good health of the package
Superior tech to other two packages. Fast, capable, stable. Not developed anymore aside from plugins (same applies to Max btw).

Ease-of-use of the application for end users
Quite user friendly. Best node editor for materials of all major 3d packages. Great passes system.
