Chaos Corona 12 (Release Candidate 1) is out now for Cinema 4D!
Everyone with an active license has access, and the downloads are in the usual locations. (RC 1 for 3ds Max is already out)

Downloads and Change logs:
Cinema 4D

A Release Candidate is close to being the final release, but we need your feedback to catch any remaining bugs or other issues from real-world testing.
Here are some of the major features in Corona 12:

  • Render test images in seconds with the new Corona to Vantage scene export. Import your Corona scene into Vantage to render still images and create Vantage animations, enjoying the lightning-fast speed of GPU rendering.
  • Label round or curved objects perfectly using the new Curved Decals feature.
  • Create new and incredibly realistic materials with the help of Corona Pattern. Mix and match whether the maps follow the base object UV, the pattern object UV, or both, to get the exact patterns you want with no hassle.
  • Get full creative control over the scattering process with the new Scatter Instance Brush. Refine your procedural scatter to the last detail, using a brush to paint in or delete procedural instances.
  • Enjoy a smoother workflow by having multiple LightMix elements with different settings and more new features and improved UI in the new and improved VFB 2.

Please test as much as possible and report your findings to us, so that we can make Corona 12 ready for release as quickly as we can! You can tell us about any issues by following the links below:

News / Corona 11 (Hotfix 2) released for 3ds Max
« on: 2024-04-15, 12:57:43 »
This hotfix addresses some specific issues and all Corona 11 users for 3ds Max are recommended to download it.
Download now: https://corona-renderer.com/download

The issues are:
  • Compatibility with Autodesk 3ds Max 2025 version. (Improvement)
  • Added a warning about Corona not fully supporting OCIO color management workflow. (Improvement)
  • Fixed rare NAN in Caustics solver.
  • Fixed rare NAN caused by an error in VFB.
  • Fixed issue where some scenes with Chaos Scatter might never complete loading.
  • Fixed issue where using Isolate would lead Scatter to recompute and thus slow down viewport interaction.
  • Fixed an issue with improper display of the edge trimming tooltip.
  • Fixed incorrect edge trimming for instances of hierarchical/group models.
  • Fixed edge trimming map usage detection for the hierarchical/group models.
  • Fixed include/exclude areas filtering for on-spline scattering.
  • The Gamma Correction operator, added during the previous hotfix, is now removed. Corona will automatically apply the needed correction depending on 3ds Max color management settings.

There are no other changes.

Chaos Corona 11 (Release Candidate 3) is out now for 3ds Max!
Everyone with an active license has access, and the downloads are in the usual locations. (RC 3 for Cinema 4D is already out)

Downloads and Change logs:
3ds Max

A Release Candidate is close to being the final release, but we need your feedback to catch any remaining bugs or other issues from real world testing. This is expected to be the final major RC before release, meaning this is the last opportunity to test and give feedback.
Here are some of the major features in Corona 11:
  • Easily create stunning bathrooms, kitchens, walls, and floors with procedural tiles thanks to Corona Tile Map.
  • Define upper and lower limits for scattering, creating more realistic nature scenes with Scatter Altitude (i.e. treeline, waterline, cloudy mountaintops).
  • Fast and easy way to have scattered items look in the same direction using Scatter Look At (i.e.people watching a movie screen, fish swimming in a tank).
  • Easily apply effects like weathering and staining to the edges of objects with Edge Map.
  • Take advantage of our new Power Tools allowing you to speed up the design process, including Replace Selection tool, Randomization and adjusting of pivot points.
  • Reduce the loss of detail in those channels that can come with using a smaller render resolution or moving an object further away from the camera by using the Improved Normal / Bump filtering.
  • Enjoy improved results with the new Intel Denoiser which can run on CPU or GPU, not being tied to NVIDIA GPUs.
  • Take advantage of the color management options offered by the latest version of 3ds Max and Cinema 4D.
