I've just finished a new version of the C++ Corona API. This one adds the support for distributed rendering, easier instancing, displacement, ..., and is much easier to use in general. It will now be used for Cinema4D and Maya versions of Corona. If somebody wants to do an implementation in any other software, contact me. I am looking for talented programmers to connect Corona to other sofware in exchange for licence sale profit cut.

PS: Please note, that the API is incompatible with Blender (because it is C++ and closed-source).
Rendering is magic.

Archicad
Oh god, we had Archicad classes through one semester. It was such traumatic experience.

Hi Ondra, it's possible to use API for standalone software development like etc. interactive furniture catalog?

I registered to this forum yesterday and I have found that Corona is really very perspective renderer. I would like to recommend it to programmers of EasternGraphics GmbH company, because I was informed, that they would like to add new renderer plugin to pCon.planner program http://pcon-planner.com/cs/ , http://pcdesign.cz/

Archicad

Please keep in mind that most of the offices in Germany and Switzerland use ArchiCad! It will be a success for Corona and a big relief for us architects...

Sorry, that post was from 2013, and Archicad changed A LOT since then! I already see many amazing renders from Archicad - not only made with Corona. :)

Hi everyone.
I'm totally new here and have a simple question that may look like silly. Where i can download the API and API documentation?

I already create in house MayaToCorona exporter and reach the limitation of using it and want to expand it to complete integrated plugin in Maya in C++.
I will appreciate your help to make this happen for everyone that like to see MataToCorona happening. I will start developing as soon as get access to API and development documentation.
In addition, I already created MaxToLux internal renderer that  bring the power of LuxCoreRenderer in to 3dsmax in C++.
Read about the progress in this post. https://forum.corona-renderer.com/index.php?topic=35232.0


Thank you for your help.
