Corona Renderer feature list

Version: Corona Renderer 3 | Plugin: 3ds Max  | Last update: 23.11.2018

Render Engine

  • Biased and Unbiased solution
  • Path Tracing: unbiased solution
  • UHD cache: faster biased cached solution for interiors
  • Denoising
    • Reduces the number of passes needed to get a noise-free image, with render time reductions of 50 to 70%
    • NVIDIA AI GPU–based denoising can be used for final renders at the user’s discretion (requires a compatible NVIDIA GPU)
    • Interactive amount adjustment
  • Adaptive Image Sampling
    • Balances out the rendering calculations over the image to focus more processing power on tricky areas
  • Progressive rendering
  • Max Sample Intensity (MSI): automatically removes fireflies -
    accuracy/render speed tradeoff
  • Bidir/VCM: experimental unbiased engine with faster/more precise caustics
  • Proudly CPU based

Interactive LightMix
