From the Corona Renderer 6 Daily Builds Changelog:

  • Implemented new and improved Sun & Sky model
    • Supports sun below horizon
    • Current version does not support turbidity, but it will be added in next iteration of this model
    • Can be selected by using "Improved" sky model in CoronaSky map (this is now the default)
    • Can be selected by unchecking the "Use legacy color" checkbox in CoronaSun (legacy mode is available only in old scenes)
Give it a try and share your results!

Disclaimer: it looks crazy good. Keep that in mind!

These looks really awesome, thanks for sharing! Might be a while till we get these in the C4D plugin (and thats ok) but it look mightily improved!

It looks crazy good. There has to be a disclaimer to this :D

Added.

Haha, one can always count on Maru to deliver a couple of laughs! I think I'll give it a twirl in 3ds Max, I still have a couple of days of subscription left. That animation seriously looks amazing.

No disclaimer other than it does not support clouds. We are still running the separate research project on that one.
Rendering is magic.

Wasn't even expecting clouds so if there are researches in this sense that's awesome news! I'm so envious of Terragen skies. We're now halfway there, adding clouds would be insane! Good job guys

New sky model looks fantastic, sunset renders overcame my expectations.

But... I can't get same images as GeorgeK posted. In my case sunset images with the same sun positions looks redder/yellow, without blue sky on sides. I can get something similar setting quite low exposure, FOV more than 70-90 and with some LUts. Is it the case? Would you mind sharing setup?


And I saw "Altitude" parameter and Comes with fog/aerial perspective in Trello, what about these?
