As one of the officially render farm partners of Corona, XRender now supports Chaos Corona 8, the major version of Chaos’ high-performance photorealistic rendering engine via our XRender desktop.
A great deal of new features have been added to Corona 8 in this month’s release, giving users more possibilities in 3d visualization. Take a look at some of the highlights with XRender!
|New Features in Chaos Corona 8
Released by Chaos in April 13, 2022, as the only product not affected when parent company Chaos Group rebranded itself as Chaos earlier this year, Corona is now catching up the team and integrated tighter with more applications in the Chaos product matrix.
The render engine got a new name, Chaos Corona, instead of Corona Renderer. In the meanwhile, the software also gets a new logo in the same format as those of Chaos’s other products like V-Ray and Phoenix.
In the meanwhile, and for the first time ever, Corona has added support for both 3ds Max and Maxon Cinema 4D versions on the same day. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights in this update.
A “full featured, production ready” object scattering plugin is now bundled with both editions of Corona 8. New options to exclude parts of a scene from receiving scattered objects has been added in the release. And either automatically, according to slope angle, or manually, using splines is supported, allowing users to randomly place hundreds, thousands, or millions of instances in a pattern, with a wide range of controls to get the result you need.
New Decal System
A new system with its V-Ray counterpart that introduced in recent updates to V-Ray 5, allowing users to project decal textures onto surfaces in a scene without the need to set up or modify UVs for a mesh.
With the new system, users may now add realism to your scene with essential details such as markings on the road, cracks in concrete, smudges, and dirt on glass in a more easy way.
Corona 8 also integrates the renderer with other services previously only available to V-Ray users, provides users with hundreds of models, materials, HDRI skies, and even presets for Chaos Scatter that you can use within 3ds Max or Cinema 4D.
Corona 8 is available for 64-bit 3ds Max 2014+ running on Windows 7+ and Cinema 4D R14+ running on Windows 7+ or macOS 10.14+. Current pricing is covered in the story above.
