Found a link to this forum on max3d.pl - one of the biggest Polish cg forums.

I study computer graphics at a private school so I can use Corona on a legal, student version of 3ds max 2012 x64, which is awesome. It's also insane that Corona is free but please don't turn it into a commercial application like Crazybump did.
I'm planning to go commercial when its good enough, but there will always surely be some free builds (for example for students). Also, most active alpha/beta testers will have corona always for free.
Rendering is magic.

Hi, I'm Andrea, an italian architect living in Barcelona.
I 'm an "archivizzer" and interested in generative architecture and performance based architectural modeling. I work usually with 3DS Max and Rhinoceros. During the long pauses between a work and another I usually work as generalist for myself or doing some architectural porn with rhinoceros and scripting.

Started CG in 1999-2000 at last year of high school with caligari trueSpace and Bryce3D (!!), then switched to max 5 at university (Radiosity and Light Tracer, they were like science fiction to me). Since 2005 started using vray, then in 2007 switched to Mental Ray, then another time to Vray this year due to inefficient light solutions during my thesys project (lot of indirect illumination and particular light condition, in the future I will make some tests with Corona...).

I discovered Corona this May, but never tried for lack of time, on Mental Ray forum thanks to Rawalanche comparisons during my "self thought" way to optimize render times.

This engine seems quite fast at this early stage, can't imagine how fast could be in the future. And it's less than 3 MB!!

Totally right for a commercial version at reasonable price.

I'm 23. I remember playing (literally!) with caligari truespace on a 166MHz pentium when I was in primary school. It was one of first 3d graphics apps I remember. Next ones were Bryce 5 (it was amazing), Poser, Max 5, some early versions of CAD (I'm not sure what it was but I remember makings lathes from splines and "baking" them as bitmaps). I'm proud to live in times where computer graphics achieved such progress.

Hi, my name is Max.
I learned about the Corona Renderer of Russian Forum 3dcenter. First I made a couple of tests, but thought that the rendering is flawed. But I did not leave a strange feeling (just magic) that this revolutionary product. I began to actively test the Corona renderer and realized that inner voice had not deceived me:)!
Now I get great pleasure from the use of the Corona renderer!
Many thanks and great respect Ondra for my new feelings!!!

Hi,

My name is Chakib, 29 years old from Morocco, i'm a 2d/3d artist, i have 6 years of experience in 3d domain working in some TV ads ( local ones ) and doing many 3d works that I've enjoyed them during all these years, i love to be always updated to the new 3d technologies especially the rendering engines, i do a lot of testing day by day to improve myself.

I use 3ds max and Vray as primary 3d softwares, but i can tell you Corona render is my new love right now i know it from the first test, solid amazing results with easy things to do is what artists demand  the most, the corona team must  be proud !

Actually i'm using a core2quad in a poor rig so not the fullspeed version, and i hope i can get enough money to by my own solid rig for my next projects soon...

I'm very happy to be a member here and i'm sure everybody here is enjoying his corona drug like i do lol, Cheers !

Hi , my Name is Marcelo Souza, my fancy name is Kumodot. :)

    I am 40 years old, working with CG Animation since 1995. :) I am a 3ds user since version 1.0 (DOS version). Before that i was using Crystal Topas.
    I am from Rio de Janeiro, but livin in São Paulo for the past 8 years.

    Working as VFX Supervisor and Senior 3D Generalist at O2filmes Post production house. We work for advertise and Feature Films.

    My render tools are Scanline (in the past and for some pass until today), Mentalray, a little bit of Vray RT (for stills) and now Corona.

    Maybe you already know my work (maybe not), one of my images came bundled with 3DSMAX 5 Sample files as a sample of Scanline Rendering "capabilities" lol. This image :

Hahah, I remember my frustration when I was trying to reproduce it without any knowledge of 3ds max. You're a veteran! :D

I am sunji from Philippines, a newbie in rendering. There are a lot of promising Filipino CG artist out there(CGpinoy.org) but most of them are vray users. i have already introduced corona in the forum for CGpinoys who would want to use (free)legal renderers... My Max and Cad are student licensed from autodesk. Since i couldn't afford to buy Vray, (OUT OF CONSCIENCE) i resolved to stick with mental ray or atleast find a free renderer that could somehow produce like that of vray.

i was browsing for 3D inspiration and  got hooked by Marcelo Souza's superb corona typwriter and visited his portfolio. He described the renderer he used and i was surprised that he's using a free renderer.

I'm working out some scenes as of the moment using corona. I'll be posting it as soon as it's finished.

Hoping i could still get corona for free when things will be commercially distributed in the future.
