Chaos Corona 9 released for 3ds Max and Cinema 4D

October 17, 2022

We are happy to announce that Corona 9 is out now for both 3ds Max and Cinema 4D. For the first time, a Corona license gives you access to Corona 9 for 3ds Max and Corona 9 for Cinema 4D.

New features include

Procedural Clouds
Fine-tune your skies to fit different scenes, and animate them with ease, unlike HDRIs which are hard to modify and impossible to animate. This works with the existing sun and sky, so clouds realistically react to dawn, noon, and other times of the day.

Corona Pattern
Tile geometry just like you would tile bitmaps. You will achieve much greater realism using actual geometry in place of opacity or displacement maps, and it even reduces memory requirements.

Edge Trimming
This Chaos Scatter update gives you control over lawns, for example, so you can keep that edging neat and tidy.

Chaos Scans, Player, and Phoenix
Lots of new functionality, from ultra-realistic complex materials in Chaos Scans to realistic fire and water in Phoenix, is now included with Corona Premium.


You’re invited to join our live webinar on Tuesday, October 25, 2022, Noon CEST. We’ll show this release’s main features in action, and answer any questions about them.

For this release, everyone gets a 30-day trial period to test the new features and added software, even if you have had a previous trial that expired.

Dive deep into all the details of the major new features plus the smaller features, bug fixes, company news, and future plans in the blog post.
