RENDER LEGION AND CORONA JOIN CHAOS GROUP FAMILY
Chaos Group and Render Legion, the makers of Corona Renderer, join forces.
We are excited to welcome Ondra, Adam, Jaroslav and the entire Render Legion team to Chaos Group! Corona is fast, it’s easy to use, and renders beautifully. From the beginning, our mission has been to help all artists and designers visualize anything they can imagine, and to push the boundaries of what rendering can do. Render Legion shares this same vision and together we believe that great visualization benefits us all.
The first thing you should know is both Corona and V-Ray are here to stay. Both products will continue to be developed independently by the same teams that you’ve come to trust, with the same level of innovation that you’ve come to expect. Now we can share ideas, research and technology to make both renderers as powerful as possible.
One advantage of being an independent company is you get to choose your own path. What’s exciting about Render Legion is they come from that same mindset, which makes it easy for us to work towards the same vision. Together, we’ll continue our commitment to the industry and to our communities.
The entire Render Legion team, and the Corona Renderer, are now a part of Chaos Group. Render Legion is a brilliant team, and we share the same passion and vision. By working together, we can make both V-Ray and Corona better — in ways we couldn’t do alone. The core Render Legion team will continue to develop the Corona Renderer with our full support. It’s an excellent product, and we’re committed to its success. In fact, we plan to expand its development team even more. V-Ray will continue to be a core component of Chaos Group. We are already working with the Render Legion team to make Corona and V-Ray even better. For example, our DMC sampler will be in Corona 1.7, and we’re already optimizing V-Ray’s dome light with the help of the Render Legion team. And that’s just the beginning.
In general, it’s still business as usual. You still buy both products from the same places; you still talk to the same people; the only update is now everything is under one roof.
