New Corona 9 Just Launched as a Single Plugin for Both 3DS Max and Cinema 4D

Chaos Corona 9 for 3ds Max and Cinema 4D adds many powerful tools to allow artists to create their 3D worlds faster and with more detail than ever. Get ready for a single license that works for 3ds Max and Cinema 4D, and with Premium and Solo offerings just like V-Ray.

For the first time, Corona comes bundled with other powerful Chaos products. The Corona Premium license includes Chaos Phoenix, Chaos Scans, and Chaos Player, while both Solo and Premium include Chaos Scatter and Chaos Cosmos.

Key features in Corona 9 for 3ds Max and Cinema 4D include:

Procedural clouds.
HDRIs may look good, but they are fixed to a certain time of day, cannot be adjusted, and don’t animate. The previous Corona Sky let you animate the time of day with ease, and now goes further with the addition of Procedural Clouds which allow users to adjust and animate realistic cloud cover in their scenes, with minimal impact on render times or memory needs.

Corona Pattern.
Corona Pattern lets users tile real geometry over a surface, with the same ease as they’d tile a texture. This gives far more realism than they would obtain using alpha, bump, and displacement maps, and it also requires far less memory than those alternatives. Prime examples are when creating knitted or woven fabrics, wire fences, jewelry such as necklaces, but also much more!

Edge Trimming in Chaos Scatter.
Users have loved the power and ease of Chaos Scatter, introduced in Corona 8. The most requested addition to Scatter was for Edge Trimming, allowing better control over the edges of grass lawns, for example, something that many users told us they would find useful. We are happy to meet their requests and provide this tool in this update.

Chaos Scans, Player, and Phoenix included in Premium.
Included in Premium are three powerful tools from Chaos. 
Phoenix will let you create realistic simulations of fire, smoke, water and more.

Chaos Scans will give you access to hundreds of realistic materials that are too complex to simulate with regular materials.

While Chaos Player will give you the ability to edit and post-process your image sequences.

Shutter Curve for Motion Blur.
With Shutter Curve you can control the amount of blur at the start, middle and end of the motion blur effect, replicating how it looks from a real camera.

 Depth of Field for Fisheye Cameras.
For artistic purposes (since real world fisheye lenses do not show this effect), you can now add depth of field blurring to scenes rendered from fisheye cameras.

Under the Hood Improvements.
The Corona Team has been working on some changes under the hood to improve the user experience, such as new preservation options for Material Overrides, reduced memory required by Corona Bitmaps, improved material previews in the High Quality viewport, and more.

Customers will only need to purchase a single Corona license to access both Corona integrations, for 3ds Max and Cinema 4D. Corona will also be offered in two tiers: Solo and Premium
