I've switched from Max to Blender in the last month. The feature I miss the most.... CORONA!

Congrats guys!

Nice atmosphere and a moody background you have in this image. Only thing I spot is there's missing some reflection of the people in the poolwater.

Definitely vampires.

It's a shame. I pointed it out to them and got a pretty pointless non-response. I love my navigator, but that lag when you start moving kills it.

Who do I bill for a new F5 key?

It's always best to sleep on it if in doubt, and read it a few more times.

Hi guys, as I wrote on facebook earlier, we really like that we have started discussion and it is interesting to read your opinions and suggestions.
We went through the points raised here, fb and emails and we made conclusions which we would like to present probably at some point tomorrow.
I just want to let everyone know, that we read every post and that we are already sadly aware that we cannot make everyone happy. It is not possible.

You will never make everybody happy! Good luck though, this is a product that deserves to do well.

You are both right. Apologies. I think I'm having a bad day.

All I did was express my wish that there was a version that I would be able to use and that I will be sad when my time with Corona comes to an end.

Is that a crime?

Is perhaps out of reach to ask your company to pay for home licence of Corona so you can improve yourself ? Or perhaps Corona will go for network licence as well, I don't know, that would let you travel same way as with 3dsMax.

No chance of that. we have a purely mentalRay workflow. I have asked several times. We are already debating cutting the number of Max seats due to Autodesk's price hikes.

Nothing would make me happier than buying Corona at work, but I'd have to retrain the staff and it would cut into development time.

AnnieC, my tone might have sounded angry, it wasn't, and apologies if my reply seemed brief. I'm having a horribly busy day full of system problems.

I don't really understand why so many hobbyists are complaining about Corona pricing if they can afford 3ds Max.. (or can they..?)

I have six copies at work, all with home use licenses, which my company pays for (floating network licenses). I don't pay for max.

Please don't imply I am a pirate or assume I'm doing "commercial work" with it.

Do you think hobbies should be free ? I am asking in good faith :- ) It's one of the more interesting topics I picked up here, not wish to sideline discussion, just interests me a bit. Cheers

I was hoping there would be a version that hobbyists could use, as hobbyists often tend to turn into paying customers later. I was guessing there would be a version with limited size output, no access to dailys, etc. Perhaps I'll enroll in a college so I can get the edu version! (although I'm far too old for a college)

OP, please stop posting photographs and claiming them as renders.

This topic was always going to create lively debate.

I am impressed that this conversation is being had out in the open. No other companies would be doing this, and the Corona team should be commended for this.

Firstly, I think your pricing structure is perfect. It will severely cut into sales of other renderers. You totally deserve to make a ton of money, as this is an excellent product, and you are an awesome group of people making this.

Personally, I was hoping there would be a hobbyist/non commercial version or something I could afford from my own wallet. Most of my Max use is supporting others (specifically on a forum I run and supporting/educating young artists where I work), and my Corona use has been solely personal use. I will be sad when I no longer have access to this amazing renderer!

Anyway, I'm really glad to see you guys are finally going to make some money from all the hard work you have done. I'll continue promoting it, as this is a render engine that really could change the world.

I was wondering if separate render size and passes control would be beneficial to the interactive rendering.
