New visualisation tool said to bring artist-friendly controls and affordable photorealism to C4D community
Corona Renderer for Cinema 4D builds on the strengths of the 3ds Max version, aligning product standards with tools specifically designed for Cinema 4D. Through a tight integration, Render Legion says it has tied Corona Renderer deep into Cinema 4D, making it an easy addition to any architecture or design-based workflow.
The software offers interactive rendering, where artists get ‘immediate feedback’ as they work. Whether modifying geometry, lighting, camera location or materials, each change appears in photorealistic quality within the Corona VFB (or Cinema 4D Picture Viewer).
Other features include LightMix, where users can interactively adjust the colour and intensity of scene lights before, during or after rendering, allowing for subtle or extreme changes with just one render; and AI Denoising, where users can choose between High Quality CPU or interactive GPU-based AI denoising to speed up renders.
Finally, the Corona Node Material Editor is said to offer a simpler way for artists to create, edit and reuse shaders between channels or materials. The editor works with all Corona and many Cinema 4D material sets and introduces the ability to spread changes across multiple materials at once.
Corona Renderer for Cinema 4D is available now for macOS and Windows, and compatible with Cinema 4D R14 to R20. Prices start at $28.50/month, with yearly rates available as well. To celebrate the launch, yearly licenses will be 25 percent until February 7.
