Hi there,
just discovered Corona and seems amazing.
I'm a C4D user happy to see new amazing things in my future. I can't wait to try it out and hopefully help testing.

Ditto

Greetings to the forum from Spain.

Thanks to the developers for thinking Cinema 4D users and for their hard work with Corona renderer.

I'm ready to pay 15-20 EUR for kickstarter for C4D corona renderer. Daily i'm using 3D Max and C4D as second software.
When kickstarter will start ? :) Today?
If we count 200-250 persons with 15-20 EUR payments (it's like a price for ONE 3D TREE MODEL)  - its more than 3000 EUR. It should be enough to invite some software developer.
Maybe target 10000 EUR for a half year should be enough to finish porting CORONA to C4D?
Thank You in advance for Your hardworking for community.

3000 EUR would barely suffice to keep one skilled and competent developer employed for a month. And it would take at least a year to get good and finished integration within 3D package. So at very least 36 000 EUR. And that's just a price of development, not actual Corona licence once it becomes commercial. So while 15-20 EUR donation could get you maybe a little discount, you would still have to buy final Corona afterwards.

Ok. I understand.But why this thread started? if we need 36000 EU to port corona to C4D - is it possible or not?This thread is only for giving a hope? 3000 EU - it's many months of my work. I know that payment for software developer is much bigger than for 3D graphic designer, but here is a lot of people which want to pay for development of this port. Not only me with 20 EU :)

I understand. This thread was originally started because someone got assigned to C4D development, although i am not quite sure if it's still going on. I am not saying you have a bad idea...  just that it takes a bit more then most of people may think. It's really not that simple, and not only when it comes to finances.

I was thinking closer to 100-125 euro each towards the plugin development otherwise it would need a whole bunch of people straight off. I dont have a problem with the system octane has where you buy a main license and a license for the plugin. I think Thea also does that but I could be wrong.

why you guys are talking about values? We gave already info that we are able to pay if the problema was Money the author of corona for sure will give a  word about it now talkign about how much a coder needs, bla bla bla there is no point, only person who can talk about values is the author. Maybe should be better to ask about current status of the development or if it is in standby or not, or if we will see it in c4d one day... just relax and wait for sure the author will give some info when he have some!
regards

"why you guys are talking about values?"

I suppose the latest info was Keymaster saying he was getting close to considering kickstarter for Corona and that the c4d plugin is a student project which was started a year ago. The Maya plugin seems to be developing and the API is there so if we can offer a coder some cash to spend some time developing a C4D plugin then why not? But if folk only want to put in a few euro each then that could take a long time to get a decent pot.

The problem was that last time I checked the developer was not interested in money, so a personal change may be necessary

The build is not stable enough to be released yet.
