Here are some images and film stills we completed on Zaha Hadid's Daxing Airport. Truely an amazing building which we at Minmud all loved working on.



Hello Corona friends,

Here is some of our recent work completed for Zaha Hadid Architects on the Solidarity Transport Hub in Warsaw Poland.

Hello Corona pals,

Here is a small teaser of something the Minmud team is working on < ; All Corona, post in Nuke.


Gallery / The Qinhuangdao masterplan
« on: 2019-06-04, 11:05:20 »
Hello Corona friends, I'm happy to post some images here showcasing work that we recently completed on the Qinhuangdao masterplan for Zaha Hadid Architects. This project was a big challenge, we were working with cleverly generated data from the ZHA team including the locations of different tree types, traffic and other elements as particle information. The aerials were produced as matte paintings at 12K pixels wide for extra details. We are well known for creating matte paintings of large scale projects, and Corona was a great help to us in working on this massive scene.


[Max] General Discussion / Normals render elements AOV

Hello friends,

Normals do not render as I expect, is Corona using a different space for calculation from other renderers for this AOV?


[Max] Feature Requests / Corona lister and instances
« on: 2019-01-18, 11:08:04 »

I just booted up the Corona lister and was surprised to see 6 pages of lights, when my scenes 500 lights are made up of six instances. This is probably already known but a search didn't bring up any posts so I thought I would mention it.

[Max] Feature Requests / LIGHTMIX - render element names
« on: 2017-11-16, 13:32:54 »
Hello all,

Could the LIGHTMIX setup please add the render element type / class as a suffix on the name and filename output so;

Interactive LightMix becomes CShading_LightMix-Interactive
Environment becomes CShading_LightSelect-Environment
Sun001 becomes CShading_LightSelect-Sun001

As it is now we have no way of knowing what render element output files are LightSelects for further processing (OK, I can assume that anything not named well is a light but that isn't very elegant or certain).

Thank you!


Hello all,

I am not sure if this has been mentioned, I did have a bit of a look but didn't see anything. We have been using CIE for a recent project and I note that when you "Save all", all render elements, including non-illuminated elements (CMASKING, CGEOMETRY) are effected by the settings under the "Post" tab. I assume this is a bug as you don't really want masks, normals, etc to be adjusted with exposure. Interestingly the ZDepth seems OK.

Hello Coronauts,

We are looking for more skilled artists. Come and join a small close-knit creative team working on some of the most exciting landmark architectural projects worldwide. Importantly, you are expected to have good artistic skills and be experienced in creating engaging visualisation work.

Please do not apply if you are not in or able to live and work in London.


Apologies if this has already been discussed, I didn't find anything through search.

If you use a layered material using masks only the base materials ID appears in the CMash element. This is actually quite useful if you're using it to create a material with different glossiness settings but I would expect it to split the ID's using the masks. I hope this makes sense.

Render elements CMasking_Masks and CMasking_WireColor are incompatible with the standalone renderer (There might be others).

We really need CMasking_Masks to work on standalone for it to be useful, currently, we would need to submit a masks job separately which makes things fiddly.

Hi guys,

Apologies if this has been mentioned already, I di have a quick look!

We render using Deadline and sometimes we want to make an in progress save of a render. If you are browsing for an output filename and the RFW updates then the renderer will crash. Let me know if anything is unclear.


[Max] General Discussion / Deadline task time outs.
« on: 2015-12-18, 11:09:08 »
Hello all,

We're rendering over Deadline and Corona tasks sometimes timeout. By default deadline kills tasks that don't talk for over 8000 seconds (133 minutes) however Corona seems to render a pass every six or seven minutes and the task runs for four hours quite happily before being stopped. Simple fix is to increase the task time-out but what is causing this and what is the correct way to fix it?
