Don't hate me if this has been asked MANY times... I just cant seem to get answers from the web whatever way I phrase it. Is / when is optimised / native Corona coming for Apple Silicone M1 Macs? I've run the Rosetta version but its slow... Again, apologies if I'm a doofus! All the best

It will be coming, but we don't have a date for when it will be coming, sorry.

I am with you Brian, also very keen to know a little more about how much of an issue this is for the Corona team. Has it any priority at all or is it actively worked on right now. No idea.

Many desginers working with C4D are not full time rendering images. There are lots who render a few times a month and are pleased to do so on a mac and with Coronarender. Redshift and Octane are really not an alternative yet. So once Coronarender has a native version I might just stick with Apple for now. If it takes another year or more I would probably go elsewhere.

Btw, tx Coronarender for version 7.

Same here. I'm a Mac user since 25 years. My next big investment would be a new "Pro" Mac with Apple silicon if Corona would run natively.
Otherwise I had to buy a Windows PC workstation for the first time, or work with a different renderer, both of which would annoy me.
