Hey people,

any tech-savvy people who heard about Disney's in-house Hyperion renderer
and know more about it?
It mentions basically GI semi-non-biased to get the physical plausible results but supposedly much more
efficient due to their data architecture (things like bundling together rays coming from similar angles):,2817,2471740,00.asp

"Hyperion has been in development since 2011, but draws on multiple research projects on multi-bounce complex global illumination carried out at Disney's Zurich research lab. Animators can now create frames containing highly accurate simulations of 10 billion simultaneous rays of light as Hyperion calculates the illumination, bounce, shadows, and redirection of every single beam—something that would have been computationally impossible before Hyperion. It is able to do this efficiently even within massively complex scenes by using a novel streaming data architecture. "

Isn't this what common renderers like Vray already do or is there more to it
(and if so, could it help Corona, for settings in projects where you're pressed for faster render times)?

General CG Discussion / Corona Tutorial YT Channel

Hey guys (and gals, are there any?)

I'm really new to Corona
and when I looked at the tutorial section in the forum, I couldn't really find that much and has a lot of non-tutorial stuff in it.

So I'm thinking of starting a YT channel with Corona tutorials on shading, lighting and rendering (and optimization for different type of scenes).
It would be one where anybody with a good tutorial can submit a video to be uploaded and, if they have and want to, have their blog/site linked.

Even short walkthroughs of how a scene was set up, any shader you think deserves attention, lighting and rendersettings (even though there's not much to customize there)
could  help or some experimental testing work on materials and/or lighting.

Are there people interested in this and also somebody already has a tutorial now or in the planning that could be uploaded?

Hello Keymaster, I was wondering if there has been contact with garagefarm to support Corona for their cloud rendering?
I asked a while ago on their FB page and they had to look into the license you offer for render farms.

I know Rebus supports Corona, but IMO garagefarm beats the usual suspects in price so would be a marriage in heaven, Corona and Garagefarm :)

No doubt Corona is awesome and can't wait for some of the upcoming features.
However, I'm wondering if anybody who's used/tested all the various unbiased renders out there and
can briefly lay out their advantage.

And I'm talking mostly about speed and quality for mostly Arch Viz and product renderings, because I've no doubt no doubt
that features like fur, active shade use etc. will be added to Corona.

Ok, go! :)
