The new launch | Chaos Corona 8
In April 13, 2022, after the success of Corona 7, Chaos continuously launched Corona 8 for 3ds Max and Cinema 4D. Corona 8 brings a new name and more options to the artist-friendly render engine. Artists and designers can now access instant content, enhanced scattering. Moreover, there are also other highly requested features behind the most substantive update in Corona history.
For faster scene creation, designers can now use Chaos Cosmos. It is a new 3D content system packed with 1,300 free, highly curated models and HDRIs. With Chaos Cosmos, designers can stage interiors and environments in a few clicks. Furthermore there is instant access to commonly used assets like furniture, trees, cars and people. Each asset is directly searchable within 3ds Max and Cinema 4D. It makes the process of creating believable imagery even more fluid.
The update also welcomes the addition of Chaos Scatter (the next generation of Corona Scatter). It allows users to quickly place objects into a scene in a believably randomized or patterned way. The design for adding things like rocks and trees, or textile fibers with Chaos Scatter is flexible and useful across landscapes, interiors and more.
The release also includes:
- Corona Decal — Easily place things like splashes, scratches and craters. Multiple decals can be stacked and controlled in the viewport.
- Corona Slicer — A material that allows the usability any geometry of any shape in creating a cutaway of a building or other object. Corona Slicer includes options to create caps, define their materials, and include/exclude objects.
- Tone Mapping — Designers can now exert more control over the final look of a cinematic render, without resorting to external image editing software.
