Title: kickstarter..?
Post by: yolao on 2012-11-06, 03:34:00
Hi

I just continuing testing for a bit more and i think the quality is great and the speed is REALLY AMAZING. Have you consider doing a kickstarter campaign?..., the software is fantasic and i`m sure you will have a lot of support.

Cheers

AFAIK Ondra already has several partnership offers and connections so i don't think kickstarter is necessary right now :)

plus it would never appeal to anyone except for very small group of CG artists

It's called elite.

But seriously, I think it's best to keep alpha/beta versions of such software quiet, only available for interested users, without any aggressive campaign. If more users would hear about Corona, they would probably remember it as a very buggy piece of software (as it is now, though still pretty amazing as for alpha stage) and wouldn't be eager to come back to it in the future. Let's spend some more time fixing essential stuff and then come in with procedural exploding pony-shaped strange attractors and volumetric motion blurred caustics.

No, it's called people working in a particular field.
