Corona 8 on mac intel works perfectly. Corona 8 on mac M1 is causing crashes when rendering and cosmos opens as a white window, unable to see content.
The first native betas for M1 worked very well. Are you working on fixing it?
Very good job, the news and the render engine is wonderful. Greetings team!!!

I think Cosmos is busted right now - maybe overloaded since everything went properly released? - mine is give http 500 errors inside it.

For crashes, please include which version of C4D, and the bugreport.txt too is invaluable. It would also be good to know if this is every scene, or just some. Thanks!

I reinstall corona 8 and send file. I have reinstalled corona 7 and the scene no longer breaks, it takes a long time to take the first step but it remains stable. In complex scenes, it takes a long time to take the first step in corona 7.
I have not been able to assess whether corona 8 is faster because it breaks, it is true that the tests in corona 8 I only did with files that demand a lot of memory. Is it possible that the problem is the apple silicon unified memory which is insufficient? Does this experience improve with the 64gb M1 Pro and Max? I am very comfortable in the macOS environment and delighted with cinema 4d and corona, it is the perfect tool for my work. I am very happy to use your render engine, so I would love to help you in any way possible related to the macOS platform. You are close to solving these little bugs... Cheer up!!!
Greetings from Spain.

Hi there, thanks for the bug reports. I will forward them to the developers for further investigation. If you have not tried this version, could you please test our latest V9 daily build to see if this may help? https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1xoDTlVaxw6ovZ3-KLhUjdn5DowtEuAic

It still closes cinema 4d in complex scenes, although I feel that it supports more complexity and the processor works at 100x100.
There are complex scenes that remain stable with Corona 7 but the cores work at 50%. The same scene with V9 works at 100x100 but it closes... I disable some objects and it renders without closing.
There is something in corona 7 that does allow you to render without closing, although the initial passes are very slow.
There is something in V9 that does not allow rendering very complex scenes but nevertheless I notice more power.
Initial beta versions of v8 rendered slow but rendered any complex scene.
I hope it helps and that you soon find the solution.
These errors only in M1. Same complex scene in Corona 8 on mac-intel, no problem.
All the best.

With version 9 everything remains the same, it seems more powerful but in complex scenes it crashes.

Thanks for the update. Can you also try this V9 daily and let me know if you still get crashes? https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/17efFYw2WOXikJiKty1Zv14Pi7nV2pjTE

Corona 7 and Corona Renderer 8 for Cinema 4D (Daily Build 2022-02-02) were slow but steady. Latest version 8 and 9 are fast but crash when the scene is complex.
Please find a solution because Corona 7 was not closing on mac M1.
